THE STORY:

Long distance running has never been a strength of mine nor have I ever been very fond of it. However, the challenge for me in completing this marathon, I see as being so very insignificant to the challenge my friend, Rick Carone, has been facing for the past 3 years in his battle with stage IV pancreatic cancer. After initially being diagnosed, Rick was given a slight chance of living 6 months. Yet, he's here today and continues to defy insurmountable odds everyday while maintaining a positive attitude. Rick is inspired through his faith and family and in doing so, inspires everybody around him, including myself. I'm hoping that in completing the challenge of this marathon, I can give him back just an ounce of inspiration to help in his continued battle as he has inspired me more than he knows.

Please help me reach my fundraising goal of $3,000 in support of the Project Purple foundation - a foundation that has set out to beat pancreatic cancer. Your donation to Project Purple will mean so much to myself, Rick, and everybody else who is battling pancreatic cancer. Thank you.

-Matt
