THE STORY:

I will be running in the Carlsbad Half Marathon in January of 2014, and I'm hoping to raise money for the Children's Neuroblastoma Cancer Foundation (http://www.cncfhope.org/). My inspiration for this fundraiser is a little girl named Hazel, who is currently undergoing treatment for neuroblastoma. While I do not know Hazel or her family, I have been following their blog for months, and having a son the same age as Hazel has made her fight that much more heartbreaking. No child should have to endure what she and others with this disease must go through to fight for survival. All money raised by my run will go directly to the Children's Neuroblastoma Cancer Foundation, which is a 501(c)3 tax-exempt organization, and all donations are tax-deductible.

To learn more about my inspiration, Hazel, please visit her family's blog:

You can also buy "Hope for Hazel" shirts and bracelets on their website, with all proceeds going directly to her family:

More about Neuroblastoma:
"Childhood cancer is the #1 disease killer in our children; more than asthma, cystic fibrosis, diabetes and pediatric AIDS combined! Neuroblastoma is a solid tumor form of childhood cancer that originates in the sympathetic nervous system, the nerve network that carries messages from the brain throughout the body. The cause of neuroblastoma is unknown. When neuroblast cells fail to develop normally they form tumors in the nerve tissues, usually in the neck, abdomen, or pelvis, and most commonly in the adrenal glands. Nearly 70% of those children first diagnosed with neuroblastoma have disease that has already metastasized or spread to other parts of the body. Neuroblastoma has one of the lowest survival rates of all pediatric cancers." To learn more, please visit: http://www.cncfhope.org/
