Hi friends! Will you consider donating just $1 a mile towards leukemia research?  See more

BENEFITING: The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society

EVENT: 2010 ING New York City Marathon

EVENT DATE: Nov 07, 2010

Leigh Ann McIlvain

THE STORY:

My friend Caroline was diagnosed with leukemia in September, which was right in the middle of my training to run my first ever marathon--the NYC Marathon. It's a monumental task to run 26.2 miles and not for the faint of heart! Nothing, though, can compare to the courage, strength and determination with which Caroline is facing her diagnosis and treatment. I'm so proud to be her friend and I hope to raise money to donate to Leukemia research in her name. I'll be running my 26.2 miles on November 7th in her honor. Would you consider sponsoring me just $1 per mile?

Two bucks for every mile. One is for you the other is for my virtual running of it with you (in my mind). Also, many prayers on the way for your friend and her family. 6 years ago
