EVENT DATE: Apr 15, 2013
To my wonderful Family and Friends,
I am very excited to let you all know that I have decided to run the Boston Marathon this year as a member of the Mass General Marathon Team Fighting Kids' Cancer...One Step at a Time. I can't tell you how thrilled I am to be running for such an inspirational cause.
As many of you know I am a Pediatric Nurse and children hold a special place in my heart. I have always wanted to run the Boston Marathon, not for myself, but for a great cause. This is the cause I have chosen as it touches my heart in a special way. I get goose bumps just thinking about running for children who are suffering with Cancer. They are my heroes and I will be pushing myself to complete this Marathon in honor of them and their fight with this terrible disease.
I have seen first-hand what it is like for a child (or adult) to fight cancer. It breaks my heart into a million pieces to watch the constant battle they all go through. Nobody in this world should have to endure something like this. I know I can be their nurse and support them while in the hospital, but I want to help in a bigger way. Running on this team is helping fund research for a CURE...and to me that is my big way to help!
In order to raise my goal of $5000 I will need all of your help! A donation in any amount will be much appreciated!! I know that each and every one of you knows someone who has survived the battle with cancer, has cancer now, or very sadly lost their battle with cancer. It is a TERRIBLE disease and the only way we are going to stop it is to find a cure with your help!
The Mass General Marathon Team Fighting Kids' Cancer ... One Step at a Time was established in 1998 and has raised nearly $8 million in support of the Division of Pediatric Hematology and Oncology at MassGeneral Hospital for Children. Thanks to the generous support of John Hancock Financial and other partners, we will continue to run until we find a cure … One Step at a Time.
Thank you all!
Lots of Love,
