THE STORY:

Welcome to Carone's NYC Angels fundraising page! 

My name is Heather Chenery from Shrewsbury, NJ and I am running the New York City Marathon November 6th FOR Rick Carone - an incredible man with a heart of gold fighting the battle of his life- and the incredible organization helping to find a cure, Project Purple.

I met Rick through a mutal dear friend a few years back at a baseball fundraiser in Chicago and immediately was impressed and inspired by his character, drive, energy and warm spirit. I have followed his ups and downs fighting this unforgiving cancer, all the while truly inspiring OTHERS along the way. Rick has been battling stage IV pancretic cancer since May 28th, 2013. I have learned that the strength and competitive drive Rick showed while playing baseball at Ole Miss and for four years in the Chicago White Sox farm system absolutley helps him fight every day. But more it is his faith, his happiness, and his ability to see the good in every moment and experience that makes you want to be a better person! He is larger than life for sure, but he will need all the love he’s shown everyone over the years to come back to him exponentially. He is a single father of two gorgeous girls and has a lifetime of memories to still make with them, his family, and his friends. 

I was actively looking for the perfect charity to align myself with when I saw on Facebook that Rick and Project Purple had a few bibs available for the right candidates! I knew immediately it was a sign, Rick and this fantastic organization working tirelessly to SHUT DOWN pancreatic cancer are exactly what we hoped to represent on Nov 6th!

I humbly ask you to give, to share, to pray, and to live your life to the absolute fullest; as Rick has all of his life. I am commited to making  the NYC Marathon the vehicle to help raise $3500 to find a CURE for pancreatic cancer. When I am feeling down, when I am feeling like I can't go the extra mile, when everything in my mind and legs says quit...I will hold Rick in our hearts and dig deep like he does EVERY DAY battling his way through the fight of his life!
