THE STORY:

Samantha Menke wrote -

On January 18, 2011, we lost a great man, my father, Pete Menke, to prostate cancer. During the time he battled prostate cancer, I was baffled to hear so many people nearly scoff at the idea that it was anything but curable.

To that end, I want to help raise awareness of the eradication of prostate cancer and will be channeling my dad's strength on October 30th in the Marine Corps Marathon. The marathon is a 26.2 mile journey to the legendary Marine Corps War Memorial Finish Line. I’m thrilled to be participating in my first marathon with the added motivation of running for a great cause. 

My goal is to raise $5,000 between now and October to benefit the Prostate Cancer Foundation. Do not feel pressure to sponsor me, but please help continue to spread the word and I’ll keep you posted as I train!
