THE STORY:

Dear friends,

I am ecstatic to announce that I will be running my first ever 26.2 consecutive miles in the NYC Marathon this fall! I have a long road of training ahead of me, but I know that two things will keep me on track: your encouragement and support, and my amazing cause. Also, the image of pizza dangling just out of reach. Hasn't failed me yet!

I am running for a fantastic organization called First Descents, which provides free outdoor adventures for cancer survivors, allowing them to accomplish physical challenges, reclaim their lives, and connect with other survivors. I found out about this wonderful charity through my dear lifelong friend and survivor of Hodgkin's lymphoma, Elizabeth Moroney, whose life was personally changed by First Descents.

Liz had the opportunity to participate in two kayaking trips with FD, the first in North Carolina in 2012 and the second in Glacier National Park, Montana in 2013, both helpful in massive ways. She could go on forever about the beautiful memories she has from these trips and the refreshing perspective she gained from them. They allowed her to prove that she is capable of conquering physical challenges despite a passively functioning left lung. In fact, she is now on her way to jogging her first 10K for First Descents and I am so proud of her incredible progress!

These experiences were invaluable to Liz, and if I meet my fundraising goal of $3500, at least three more cancer survivors will be able to embark on their first FD adventure! Anything you can contribute would be so very much appreciated, no matter how small. Your support truly means the world to me!

 

Sincerely,

Liz DeVito
