EVENT DATE: May 07, 2016
Mike and I will be running in the Tinkerbell 10k at Disneyland on May 7, 2016. We are so excited to train, since it will be MY FIRST 10k EVER! When I found out that runDisney had partnered with Crowdrise as a fundraiser platform, I knew I wanted to run in honor of my father, Carlito Alfonso. After undergoing extensive chemotherapy and surgery, my father has surpassed the 6 month time frame they had predicted when he was initially diagnosed. Approaching his 3rd year anniversary, supported by friends and family, love, and the power of prayer, he is trying to remain strong! We would like to say "thank you" to my father's UCLA Pancreatic Disease healthcare team (Dr. Donahue, Dr. Wainberg, Blanca (NP), and their team) through our charitable donation. All proceeds will go towards improving research and treatment for those affected by pancreatic diseases and pancreatic cancer.
In the comment section on the donation page, please clearly state that you would like your donation to go towards the UCLA Center for Pancreatic Diseases.
