Event Name: Polly's Run
EVENT DATE May 30, 2015
I am going to be running Polly's Run in honor of my friend, Grace. Polly's Run is "the race to cure pancreatic cancer" here in Albuquerque. To read more about Polly's Run, click here.
No one should have to face this horrible, aggressive cancer. With the help of your donations to raise awareness and fund research, hopefully there will be a day where no one else will. Unfortunately, my friend Grace had to face it when she was diagnosed in April of 2014. Grace and I met a decade ago when she joined the small group my husband and I were hosting, and we also happened to live in the same neighborhood in downtown Chicago. I've had the privilege of seeing her get married, become a mom, and excel in public interest law where she has helped connect attorneys with those in need of pro bono services. She has been fighting this cancer like a champ with the support of her dedicated husband and the inspiration of her adorable 2-year-old.
Please join me in honoring her valiant fight by contributing to this cause. Any amount, big or small, will make a difference to obliterating a cancer that does not get much notice but has such devastating effects. Let's fight it together. Thanks so much!
