BENEFITING: BRAIN TUMOR FOUNDATION
ORGANIZER: BRAIN TUMOR FOUNDATION
Hello and thanks for visiting my fundraising page!
This won't be my first marathon but it is certainly the most meaningful marathon I'll run because it's the 1st marathon I'm running for a cause other than myself. I'm running the NYC marathon to raise money for the Brain Tumor Foundation.
BTF is a charity that supports brain tumor patients and their families. It's especially dear to me as I have a close friend who lost a loved one from this affliction.
Please join me in helping to raise money for this fantastic charity. If you have the means, please donate to help raise money for a great cause. I will be eternally grateful and will be in your debt.
For more about BTF, please see the writeup below.
Thanks so much for your gracious support!

Team BTF is proud to once again be participating in the ING New York City Marathon on Sunday, November 3, 2013. The Brain Tumor Foundation (BTF) guides and supports patients and families during the turbulent times when their lives are touched by a brain tumor.
Over a million people in the US are living with brain tumors that have not yet been detected.
It is estimated over 14,000 deaths are expected to occur this year due to brain tumors.
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.
SUPPORT TEAM BTF
YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THE FIGHT AGAINST BRAIN TUMORS
Funds raised will go directly to the expansion of
The Road to Early Detection campaign -- a Six City Program soon to be rolled out nationwide.
EARLY DETECTION + RESEARCH = CURE
