Thank you for taking the time to look at my fundraising site.
When I first looked into the idea of running a marathon an idea was suggested to me to run it on behalf of a charity.
I immediately felt connected to Project Purple's cause and the work they do to help fight Pancreatic Cancer. Through a close personal friend's experience of losing his own father to the disease I have learned of the pain and suffering Pancreatic Cancer causes to both the individuals who are diagnosed as well as their family and friends.
Since taking on this challenge I have learned of so many others who have been affected by this tragic disease. Pancreatic Cancer is the 4th largest killer of all Cancers and the least funded of the top 10 Cancer killers today. Project Purple works to raise funds to improve quality of life for individuals who are suffering from the disease and to help aid in Pancreatic Cancer research efforts.
Please help support my Project Purple ING NYC Marathon team as we raise awareness and funds to find a cure for Pancreatic Cancer. Any support is greatly appreciated.
Thank you so much!
