ORGANIZER: ONE MISSION INC
EVENT: 2015 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 20, 2015
I will be running with the One Mission Boston Marathon team this year on April 20th 2015. One Mission is a childhood cancer foundation dedicated to enhancing the lives of pediatric cancer patients and their families. It provides help, hope, care, and support to children and their families touched by pediatric cancer. With all support from donors, they fund patient and family support service and programs that help children and their families cope with the many physical, emotional and financial challenges associated with this disease. My dad, Blaine Stancombe, died of brain cancer on 12/22/12. I witnessed the challenges that families of cancer patients face daily. I am running with this team in honor of my father in hopes of raising money through donations. I saw daily the love and caring my dad had for every child, and have seen throughout my life the support he would offer any child and their families in need. As with every race I run or ride, my dad is always on my back. I'll post the Boston Marathon shirt once I get it.
I feel so strongly about One Mission that I asked a friend to produce the video to the left. Matthew West was gracious enough to enable us to use his hit " Do Something" as the background music. I hope it inspires you, and I hope that you will offer hope to these families through your donation. Your tax-deductible donation, in any amount, truly makes a difference in the lives of families struggling, as they care for their child with cancer.
