Dear friends and family,
This year, I made the commitment to run in the 2017 Pittsburgh Marathon Relay (my first marathon experience!). I will be running for Team Our Clubhouse.
Our Clubhouse (formerly Gilda's Club) is a local charity which provides social and emotional support to anyone touched by cancer, free of charge. Every penny raised stays here in Pittsburgh and goes towards helping our friends in the community who have been impacted by cancer.
As most of you know, I've lost many loved ones to cancer: my mom in 1985 (age 54), my brother Danny in 2001 (age 38), and my brother Paul (age 49) in 2010. My daughter was diagnosed with thyroid cancer at age 25, and after receiving treatment, is now 6 years cancer free. Running on this team is a way for me to give back to a cause that is so close to my heart .
I would be so grateful for whatever amount you can donate. Your support is greatly appreciated and I thank you all very much!
