THE STORY:

Hey all, as I mentioned earlier this year I will be running the Twin Cities Marathon this October. I was so pleased to learn that I could help to raise funds to fight pancreatic cancer while partaking in my favorite hobby (running ridiculously long distances) that I jumped right on board. I am pleased to announce that I will be running with the organization Project Purple this October. Some of you may be wondering, why pancreatic cancer? I have plenty of reasons like the fact that pancreatic cancer has the fourth highest mortality rate. 94% of people diagnosed with this form of cancer will die within five years or the sad fact that when it comes to finding new treatments or a cure, pancreatic cancer research is horribly underfunded. Only 5% of the money raised in the U.S.to battle cancer goes to pancreatic cancer research. My most personal reason however is my dad, Michael. As some of you know dad is coming up on the two year anniversary of his diagnosis. He has been one of the "lucky" ones as he was able to have surgery and has gotten two clean scans so far. Still the surgery was draining and though he is never one to complain the chemotherapy and radiation has been time consuming and just not a lot of fun. Of course he wouldn't tell you this, he is probably one of the most positive people I have ever known. If you ask him how he is doing you will definately hear, "pretty good or"not bad" or even at times "great". So now that you have heard my reasons here is what I am asking from you. If everyone who is reading this could donate just a small amount say a dollar a mile, that would be $26 or fifty cents a mile, obviously I don't need to do the math I have smart friends, you would be doing so much to help us beat one very bad disease. I promise to train hard, keep this page, updated, put my money where my mouth is and sponsor myself. If you can help please do, Go Team Purple!
