BENEFITING: Gathering Place
EVENT DATE: Apr 07, 2013
This one is dedicated to my Aunt Gwen and all of the other people that I know that have been affected by cancer.
The Gathering Place opened in January 2000 as a nonprofit, community-based cancer support center to fill an unmet need in the greater Cleveland community. The programs and services offered address the social, emotional, physical, and spiritual needs of individuals with cancer and their support network. The mission of The Gathering Place is to support, educate and empower individuals and families touched by cancer through programs and services provided free of charge.
I am getting to ready to run my first marathon and I would like to have a cause and motivation to run for. I have decided to set up this site to bring awareness to matters that have happened in the past year of 2012. Many things have happened that have touch me personally or have made me think about how lucky some of us really are. I want to run for those that have been touched by sadness in the past year and I hope to bring them some brightness to the new year!
