***UPDATE: due to the awesome response, we nearly hit the initial goal on the first day! As such, I'm updating the goal to be $300 / mile. This speaks to the amazing impact Patrick has had in all of our lives. Let's knock this goal out too!***
When one of my oldest childhood friends, Patrick Crowley, was diagnosed with Leukemia, I, along with much of the Denver community, was devastated. However, we were equally heartened by his relentless positivity in the face of such daunting circumstances, and for the effusive outpouring of support from the community. In that spirit, I'm hoping to add my small piece to the rock-solid support network he already has behind him. I will be running the Rock n Roll half Marathon in San Francisco on April 8, and will be raising money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS). Each dollar donated will go directly to pioneering cancer treatments, benefiting Patrick and patients like him. For those of us fortunate to have him in our lives, this is our chance to give Patrick a resounding "thank you" for setting an example of unyielding joy and optimism. Thank you all for your kindness and generosity!
