BENEFITING: Our Clubhouse
ORGANIZER: Our Clubhouse
EVENT: Pittsburgh Marathon 2016
EVENT DATE: May 01, 2016
My name is Madeline. I am 6 years old and in the first grade. Ever since I can remember, my mom has worked for Our Clubhouse. She supports people that are touched by cancer. As I get older, I ask more and more questions about what that means. This is what she tells me she does:
- Helps kids understand what it means when their mom or dad has cancer
- Play with kids at the hospital that have cancer to help them feel a little bit better and to forget they are in the hospital for a while
- Support people that know someone that died from cancer.
- Support the whole family because when cancer happens, everyone that loves that person is affected.
She says some of the kids that she meets are 6 years old like me, some younger, some older. By running in the Kid's Marathon, I am going to help raise money so that Our Clubhouse can keep offering programs like this to their members completely free of charge!
Please help me support Our Clubhouse!
