BENEFITING: KORTNEY ROSE FOUNDATION
ORGANIZER: KORTNEY ROSE FOUNDATION
EVENT DATE: Nov 04, 2012
This November I will be running in the 2012 NYC Marathon in an effort to Raise Funds for the Kortney Rose Foundation. For those of you who may not know, the Kortney Rose Foundation is dedicated to raising funds to support research and education related to the treatment and cure of PEDIATRIC BRAIN TUMORS.
Sadly, I think most of us know someone whose life has been impacted by Cancer. It is a horrible disease for anyone to have to fight, but in many ways even more unimaginable when it impacts the life of a CHILD.
I have a friend whose son is bravely battling cancer. He is fighting everyday with the loving support of his family. Witnessing their ongoing struggle, I was inspired to take on the challenge of running in this year’s marathon, and I petitioned the Kortney Rose Foundation to fundraise on behalf of such a good cause.
It's with great sadness that I say my young friend lost his battle this summer to this horrible disease. To honor his bravery, kindess and all around beautiful spirit I will run this race and hopefully raise awareness and funds for pediatric brain cancer. Thank you for your support.
Will you help me raise money for this very worthwhile cause?
If you can, please donate.
