I run in honor of my mom... she'll help me cross the finish line, I just know it!  See more

THE STORY:

I love my mom…

Sixteen months ago, my mother Wendy Walter, the most influential person in my life, passed away from cancer.  She was 56 years young and had a lot more to offer this world.  Having said that, I feel lucky to have known her as intimately as I did.  I will continue to carry her torch by spreading love, peace, and joy for all humanity now and for all those to come.  I will be running in memory of my mom as well as my cousins Crista, Abby and Rory.  May their strength help me to the finish line.

Cause: The American Institute for Cancer Research (AICR)

AICR is a cancer research charity that funds research that looks specifically at the links between nutrition and physical activity to cancer prevention and survivorship.  Because the people I run for had a mix of cancers (brain, colon, skin), I believe the link of nutrition and physical activity will be more universally inclusive.  Scientists estimate that about a third of the most common cancers could be prevented by eating well and remaining active.

The Big Ask: My goal is to raise over $1,000 towards this end.  As such, I am asking for $50 as a token of your partnership to stop cancer.  This is a lot of money for most people, I know that, that is why I am in awe of your participation.  This is likely the only marathon I plan on ever running so you can rest assure knowing this is a one time commitment.  I hope you choose to join me, either with your donation or your voice; let’s work to end cancer!

Thanks again for your support,

Jason
