BENEFITING: BRAIN TUMOR FOUNDATION
ORGANIZER: BRAIN TUMOR FOUNDATION
So I was looking for a marathon this year, and a friend suggested the NY run. Tough to get in, but gave it a shot anyway. Neither of us got anywhere. He mentioned that there was a charity organization that we could potentially be part of, and I was immediately interested. He explained who it was, and I jumped on the chance.
Turns out the Brain Tumor Foundation saw fit to let me join their team. When I was very young, my aunt was diagnosed with a large brain tumor. Though not world wise at the time, I remember it being a scary time for the whole family. This is an opportunity for me to give a little back, and contribute to an organization that provides support to those individuals and families during this trying experience.
