EVENT: 2013 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 15, 2013
I am excited to be telling you that I am running the 2013 Boston Marathon for an excellent cause - for Kids fighting cancer. As someone who has had the experience of dealing with a loved one with a cancer diagnosis, I know how tough it can be on the family emotionally, physically and financially. The funds that you will be donating are going to be helping the families of these children who are battling cancer. The money will help fund support groups for the siblings of these children, alternative therapies to help aide the side-effects of cancer treatment, and provide financial assistance to the families of these children who are less fortunate.
About the Team:
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.
