In 2010, after my initial cancer diagnosis, I decided I needed to make a lifestyle change & get healthy. I was determined to lose weight & get fit. In the process, I discovered my passion for running. Running soothes me, it gives me that time to myself, it allows me to think, to de-stress & to let go of the negative.
Last year, I ran a couple of races, Ragnar FL Keys & ING Miami Half Marathon, but was forced to set running shoes aside early on in the year, because I was once again battling this disease. Between treatment & surgery, I spent most of last year recovering & unable to train.
This year I'm coming back determined to pick up where I left off. As a survivor, this race means so much to me. This fundraising is for a wonderful cause & hits very close to my heart.
Between June 21st - June 25th, 550 runners, 11 in each of the 50 states will run a marathon for cancer survivors and their families. I am one of those runners. I will run with my team, #TeamFierce to support cancer survivors like me. This is not only a huge honor, to represent Survivors and the state of Florida, but I will consider it a wonderful accomplishment for me to be able to do this.
Your donation will go to Camp Kesem which is a LiveStrong Foundation project. Children whose parents now are battling cancer or have had cancer, are able to attend summer camp at no cost. These children get one week away from the worries, the problems and having to see their parents struggle with the effects of this disease.
Therefore, if you hate cancer, if you've been affected by it in some way, if you've seen a friend, a loved one deal with this ugly disease, please support #TeamFierce #TeamFL with our goal to make a difference in these children's lives.
Thank you from Sasha Fierce! :)
