BENEFITING: Our Clubhouse
ORGANIZER: Our Clubhouse
EVENT: Pittsburgh Marathon 2016
EVENT DATE: May 01, 2016
This year I lost two friends, Kami and Karen, who furiously battled cancer for many years. To honor each of these amazing women, I have decided to run the half marathon in their honor. I elected to help fundraise for Our Clubhouse as I was drawn to the emotional support the organization provides for cancer patients and their families. As a therapist, I understand the importance of this support to help cope with such difficulties these patients must cope with and love supporting an organization that does just that! I have been so inspired by each of these women and am excited to work toward a personal goal of mine...thinking about each of them every step of the way throughout this journey!
Supporting the fighters,
admiring the survivors,
honoring the taken,
and never, ever giving up hope!
