BENEFITING: *Stand Up To Cancer
ORGANIZER: *Stand Up To Cancer
Last November, the world lost an incredible mother, Mimi, aunt, sister, friend and warrior, my Aunt M'Evie Burke Lyng. She was taken from us entirely too soon and we miss her every single day. M'Evie consistently put others' concerns and needs ahead of her own; in that spirit, her kids banded together to form SU2C Team M'Evie so that others never have to feel the profound loss we feel, and so that her legacy of helping others lives on forever. I'm honored to join Kate, Mike, Sara and our Uncle Jim and run the 2014 NYC Marathon together for SU2C Team M'Evie.
Cancer kills 1,500 Americans every day. That’s one person every minute. But we can change these staggering statistics if we stand up to cancer TOGETHER.
That’s why Team Stand Up To Cancer is rallying supporters to raise funds for cancer research by participating in their favorite races. Your donations and involvement enable collaboration among the best and the brightest in the cancer research community to accelerate the pace of groundbreaking research that can get new therapies to patients quickly and save lives. For more information about SU2C, please visit www.standup2cancer.org.
Thanks for your support! I can't wait to run 26.2 with Team M'Evie in November!
