THE STORY:

Hello,

This is my first year running with team Project Purple and I am looking forward to working with them to raise awareness and funds towards a cure for Pancreatic Cancer.

I have run six marathons, three times with a charity team, and many 1/2 marathons over the past 10 years.  I can honestly say that the races that I ran for charity were by far the most rewarding.  They were rewarding, not because I completed a marathon, because I felt like I was doing something to help potentially save a life one day. 

Cancer is a horrible disease that affects too many people.  Both of my grandparents died from forms of cancer and my aunt is currently fighting breast cancer.  I'm sure you know someone who has dealt with cancer as well. 

Did you know that 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 to this evil cancer.

We know that cancer is an ugly monster and we need to put more resources towards cancer preventation and early detection. 

On a personal note, I am running my first long distance race since fracturing my hip in the Boston Marathon and subsequently obtaining a blood clot and pulmonary embolism four years ago.  Yes, I'm scared to get back into the saddle but I'm even more frightened at the thought of giving into my fear of never running more than 4 miles again.  Running for a good cause has given me the courage to think past my fear.  Fighting cancer is worth it!  Please join me on my personal journey to raise awareness about Pancreatic Cancer as I run 13.1 miles on March 17th!        

Thank you in advance for all your support!

Warm regards,

Ivy
