THE STORY:

As many of you know, I love to run! I've decided it's time to run with more of a purpose, run for something more than just the joys of running itself... I've decided to run for Project Purple to raise money and awareness for Pancreatic Cancer (the #3 killer of all cancers). While I have not been directly affected by Pancreatic Cancer, I know people who are fighting this caner and have seen the impact this disease has on their lives. I will be using my love for running as a vehicle to support those fighting Pancreatic Cancer (as well as their loved ones) as part of the Project Purple Team in the OC 1/2 Marathon. Why help me fundraise? Did you know that Pancreatic Cancer just became the number 3 killer of all cancers and is on pace to become number 2 by the year 2020. Why are you going to wait until it affects you or someone in your family? You have a choice to help me help Project Purple change that statistic. Every dollar counts and every donation matters.

Project Purple is running in this race to raise money and awareness for pancreatic cancer. We use funds raised in all of our races to support our three main programs: research, patient aid, and scholarships.
