BENEFITING: The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society
ORGANIZER: The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society
This September, I am running in a half marathon in philadelphia, PA along with my best friend Amanda West (i hope you dont mind that I put your name on here). I would like to fundraise money for a worthy cause, which is why I chose the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I will be running 264 miles to train for the race and my goal is to raise one dollar per mile.
