EVENT DATE: Nov 04, 2012
Last December, my grandpa, Rollo Kuebler, was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. He fought, and for those of you who knew him, you know he fought HARD. On July 19, his battle came to an end.
Pancreatic Cancer is the 4th largest killer of all cancers and the least funded of the top 10 cancer killers today. We need to do more - we have lost one too many friends, family and loved ones to this evil cancer.
I am running the NYC Marathon with Project Purple on Nov. 4 in memory of Grandpa Kuebie, our Grandpa and everyone's greatest fan. Growing up, he was always there cheering all of us on in everything we did; I can't wait to run this marathon with him right there with me. Please help me to honor Grandpa Kuebie and help us get closer to a cure to pancreatic cancer. All of the money donated to Project Purple will be earmarked for pancreatic cancer research.
Every little bit helps so thank you in advance!
