On March 17th - instead of drinking green beer across the river in Hoboken, I will be running in NYC's Half Marathon! I am very excited to be taking part in an iconic race and more importantly, doing it for a good cause.
I am running with the Cancer Research Institute which has been funding top cancer researches across the nation for over 50 years. So many of us have had a loved one who has been effected with cancer - earlier this year my own mother had a scare. Due to the team at Dana Farber in Boston, she was screened early and given a clean bill of health. I want to run in her honor, my grandmothers (both survivors), and for my grandfather who passed away from the disease in 2003.
Any amount (even $13, a dollar for each mile) would be appreciated!
Can't wait to cross the finish line!
