My father, Eliot Halperin, recently passed away after a long bout with Pancreatic cancer. I plan to run my first half marathon, the NYC Half, in March 2016. As a tribute to him and as a way to raise money for pancreatic cancer, I have set up this page for donations to the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network. One of the major goals of the network is to increase the life span of those who have been diagnosed.
Since a 1/2 marathon is 13.1 miles, a donation of $1 per mile that I'll run would be great. Every little bit counts.
