BENEFITING: LAURENS FIRST AND GOAL FOUNDATION INC
EVENT DATE: Nov 07, 2010
I'm very excited about it. I like to run in support of a charity for all my big races, and this year I am thrilled to run in support of Lauren´s First and Goal, a 501(c)3 charitable organization, and a labor of love started in 2004 by my cousin Marianne Loose and her husband John Loose, in honor of my cousin Lauren, a 13-year-old pediatric brain tumor survivor. The Loose family started the foundation as a way to help other families who are battling childhood cancer.
Since its inception, LFG has raised more than $1 million toward its mission to provide financial support for brain tumor research and cancer services, to offer financial and emotional support to families living with pediatric cancer, and to increase awareness of the disease. These goals are made possible through the funding gained through LFG Football Camp and charitable contributions.
I'm so thrilled to be raising money for this organization and I hope you can contribute to my efforts! I can't wait to run for Lauren!
