THE STORY:

Heather and I have decided to run the Marine Corps Marathon this year. While it is good for us and a new challenge for me, we wanted to make it about something bigger than us. We have both had friends and family battle this disease: I lost both my Grandmother and uncle to pancreatic cancer and we have a friend fighting a courageous battle against it right now.   

This is our way to honor their bravery and express our love and support of them and theirfamilies.  Running 26 miles is nothing in comparison, but it gives us a concrete way to try to do “something.”

To help raise money and awareness, Heather and I are running for Project Purple at the Marine Corps Marathon. Project Purple offers a Scholarship Program providing grants to children and grandchildren who have lost a loved one to pancreatic cancer to continue their education. They also have a Patient Financial Aid Program that helps families pay the daily bills like mortgage, rent, and utilities due to a financial hardship caused by pancreatic cancer. Lastly they fund research toward discovering early detection and finding a cure for pancreatic cancer.

We have set a goal of raising $1000 (and not crying during the last 6 miles of the  race {Heather}) and we're asking that you help support Project Purple and our team "Less Chemo, More Moustache" as we prepare for and run the 2013 Marine Corps Marathon.

Join our Team Project Purple for the 2013 Marine Corps Marathon as we raise awareness and funds towards a cure for Pancreatic Cancer.

Thank you all for the support, love and encouragement over these next few months!

Pancreatic Cancer is the 4th largest killer of all cancers and the least funded of the top 10 cancer killers today. We need to do more - we have lost one too many friends, family and loved ones.

Thank you all for the support!
