THE STORY:

Three years ago I lost my father to pancreatic cancer. He, like many others, was ripped mercilessly from this world in one excruciating week. One minute he was fine and a week later he was gone. Cancer has no reason or rationale. It does not ask for permission or forgiveness. It takes unabashedly, expecting to leave emptiness in its wake. But what I have found is that out of the aftermath of debilitating shock and pain – somehow, we find strength to build a future. I found this strength from the unsolicited support I received from the people around me.

This support has inspired me to do as much as I can to provide the same for those struggling with the unimaginable challenges that burden those affected by cancer. For this reason I am running the New Yok City Marathon in honor of my father with the Project Purple team.

Project Purple is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization created with the goal of raising awareness and funds to defeat pancreatic cancer. Their tagline, “Running to Beat Pancreatic Cancer” comes from their primary fundraising activity: running races. From 5Ks to 100 milers, Project Purple teams participate in some of the top U.S. races, including the San Francisco, NYC, Chicago, an Boston Marathons. Their runners come from all over the world, and all have been touched by pancreatic cancer. With their help, Project Purple has been providing research funding, patient financial aid, and scholarships since 2010.

Participating in the New York City marathon has always been an aspiration of mine. I've been cheering for marathon runners for 30 years and could not be more excited to (hopefully!) cross the finish line in 2016.
