Running in Honor of the True Heroes (Disneyland Avengers Super Hero 5K)

THE STORY:

I have had the honor to volunteer with some true heroes over the last 6 years through the Children's Cancer Association's Chemo Pal program. Through this program I have been paired up with 4 super hero kiddos (Lilly, Holly, Maya and Avrey),these children and others who have had to fight for their life are the inspiration behind my running fundraiser for cancer research.

Thanks to research and advancements over the years in cancer therapies Lilly, Holly and Maya are now cancer free. While great advancements have been made it has been slow going and there is still much more to be discovered. After fighting half her life Avery earned her angel wings last October (read about Avrey's fight here https://www.facebook.com/pages/Pray-for-Avrey-Walker/201551639881951), and there are many children fighting this fight today who need research to progress much faster then it currently is. The more funding that can be put into research the faster these advancements can be made and improve the lives of those fighting.

When you donate to my fundraiser and the American Association for Cancer Research Foundation you will be supporting an organization that funds cancer research grants, fellowships, and scientific education. They put 90 cents of every dollar towards their mission, "To prevent and cure cancer through research, education, communication, and collaboration. Through its programs and services, the AACR fosters cancer research and related biomedical science; accelerates the dissemination of new research findings among scientists and others dedicated to the conquest of cancer; promotes science education and training; and advances the understanding of cancer causes, prevention, diagnosis, and treatment throughout the world." The remaining 10 cents goes to supporting daily operations of the foundation.

I will be running in the Disneyland Avengers Super Hero 5K in honor of those who have fought and continue to fight for their lives. Thank you in advance for helping support my run and this cause!
