Finished in 5:26:42. What a beautiful day for a marathon! I'm so honored and happy to run my first marathon for ABC2.  See more

THE STORY:

The LA Marathon 2012 will be my first full marathon and I'm so excited to take on the challenge. I've run in a few half-marathons over the years and completed another one last November. I've put in the training and miles and I have faith that I will cross the finish line. But I'm most looking forward to the journey and sharing a common goal with everyone else that will be there on March 18th.

Taking part in this marathon gives me the opportunity and the honor to help raise money for the Accelerate Brain Cancer Cure (ABC2) , an organization that gives hope to the courageous people fighting brain cancer.

Accelerate Brain Cancer Cure has awarded over $15 million to fund brain tumor and brain cancer research. They invest in high-risk, high-reward research in each stage of the therapeutic development pipeline. Their Pre-Clinical Screening Program breaks down barriers to entry, their research grants focus on novel therapies, and their investments with companies allow them to bring the most promising treatments to patients quickly.

Please join me in the fight against cancer by supporting ABC2 and help me reach my goal. Any amount is appreciated and will make a real difference.

In hope for a cure,
~Christa

David Cook pledged to run the LA Marathon back in October to raise money and awareness for this great cause. He inspired me to sign up for the race and join his Crowdrise team. Please read his story below:

David Cook wrote -

Cancer research is a cause that is close to my heart. In May 2009, I lost my 37-year-old brother to a brain tumor that he had been fighting courageously for more than a decade.

The following day, I had planned on running and serving as the Grand Marshal for the 5K Race for Hope in Washington, D.C. to help benefit Accelerate Brain Cancer Cure (ABC2).  I knew my brother would have wanted me to continue this race so I ran that day in honor of him and all of those suffering from cancer. I couldn’t imagine being anywhere else.

Next year, I’ll be running the 2012 Honda LA Marathon for Accelerate Brain Cancer Cure. This will be a challenging race, but one accomplishment I will be incredibly proud of and honored to do.
