THE STORY:

Friends,

 
It is that time of year again!...I clean myself up and try to run through all five of the NYC boroughs.  This is an amazing event and it is one of my favorite things about this city.
  
The great thing about the NYC marathon is that NY Road Runners requires many runners to raise money for various different charities as part of their entry.  Over the years, millions of dollars have been raised by athletes or... people like me.
  
This year I am raising money for the Brain Tumor Foundation in honor of a really good friend of mine who passed away a few years ago.  The Brain Tumor Foundation is working very effectively to heighten awareness of brain cancer as well as inform family and friends of its impact.
  
You are solicited every day to donate to various different causes.  This is not a Kickstarter campaign that will result in a film being made or a business getting off the ground, this is a way to impact and improve real people's lives.  If I have donated to your campaigns in the past, take the time to donate now - it will mean a great deal to a lot of people.
Here is some more information on the Brain Tumor Foundation.

Team BTF is proud to be participating in the ING New York City Marathon on Sunday, November 4, 2012. Please help us raise awareness and funds.

 

 

 

The Brain Tumor Foundation (BTF) guides and supports patients and families during the turbulent times when their lives are touched by a brain tumor.  The Road to Early Detection campaign, and initiative of BTF, was launched to increase public awareness about early screening for brain tumors and the urgent need for preventative brain scans.

 

 

More than half of the people diagnosed with brain tumors could be saved if brain scans were regarded to be as essential as mammograms or routine blood tests.  We have grown accustomed to routinely checking for breast, colon, prostate and other cancers – why not brain tumors?

 

Every 20 minutes someone in the United States dies of a brain tumor

 

SUPPORT TEAM BTF

  MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THE FIGHT AGAINST BRAIN TUMORS

  DONATE NOW!

 

Possibly half of all brain tumor patients could have their tumors successfully removed if they were detected early, before physical symptoms become apparent.  Early detection and complete removal is the best known method of treating deadly tumor growth.      

 

Funds raised will go directly to the expansion of

The Road to Early Detection campaign.

 

EARLY DETECTION + RESEARCH = CURE
