THE STORY:

When a 26 year young teacher colleague in my wife Esther's school died because of a brain tumor in 1995, her family began "Michele's Run" in Denver commemorating their daughter and to raise money for early detection and diagnoses for brain cancer. Since then, many of my loved ones and friends have been affected by brain tumors. So, I've run the Race for Research 20 years in a row. In 2016, they announced my name at the starting line, informing the 1000 other runners (and me) that "To our knowledge, Stephen Strand is the only person who has run in every single Michele's Run since 1996!" I intend to keep running this 5k race in Denver - and raising donations - as long as I am able. Now, I'm asking for your help to raise $500 or more for this worthy cause. If so, they will make and place a poster of a loved one along the race course. These posters are quite motivating for me. When I see a photo of Michele, I jog a little faster. This year, my goal is to see a poster of Esther's sister Hope on course and to bring it home for you to see. In twenty years, almost one million dollars have been raised for brain tumor research and clinical studies. Three years ago, Michele's mother Sondra was diagnosed with the same type of tumor as her daughter. A lot of progress has been made treating brain cancer since Michele passed away - Sondra is currently a brain tumor survivor and greets runners as we cross the finish line! Please donate as much as you can to the R4R, truly worthy of our support. And help me bring home a poster of Hopie Parson. Thank you.
