ORGANIZER: STOMP THE MONSTER INC
In March of 1992, I was laying in a hospital bed not knowing if I was going to live or die. I was suffering from Hodgkins Disease and the horrible effects of chemotherapy. After two months and three blood transfusions, I was finally able to return home. Twenty-five years later, I am cancer free and I thank God for the gift of life. I survived and I want to give back by helping others fight their battle.
On January 8, 2017, I completed my first full marathon holding hands through the finish line with my best friend and love of my life, Collette. But eight months ago I couldn’t finish a ½ mile run. I was so motivated by my own progress and the progress of my special running friends, that running 26.2 miles became a bucket list goal.
I am running the NYC Marathon in November as a team member of the Stomp the Monster Team. This charity has made a difference in the lives of 3,200+ cancer patients and their families when needed most, one STOMP at a time. I have committed to raise awareness and funds to support this charity.
My wife and I will be running the NYC Marathon together. Please donate to this exceptional organization. Your donation provides assistance with medical bills, auto expenses, insurance and pharmacy co-pays, and so much more. Your donation is tax deductible. I am asking you to donate $10. If you can do more, that’s fantastic, but $10 seems reasonable and affordable.
Please do it today. Every dollar counts. I truly appreciate your kindness and support.
