BENEFITING: Stand Up To Cancer
ORGANIZER: Entertainment Industry Foundation
HOURS PLEDGED: 30
As someone who has witnessed so many strong family members and close loved ones suffer from cancer, I felt a need to help raise support and awareness for this cause. Stand Up 2 Cancer caught my eye when I read about it's donations made toward lung cancer, which my grandmother passed from. On August 27th, I will be running a Half Marathon, and I plan on dedicating this run to Stand Up 2 Cancer, my grandmother, and everyone who has struggled, suffered, fought, lost, or won.

Cancer takes one person every minute. One life in a moment. They are our brothers, our sisters, our fathers and mothers, our husbands and wives, our best friends, our children, ourselves. Every day in America 1,500 people die and yet the means to save them are literally within our reach. To wait any longer for someone else to save our lives and the lives of those we love is unforgivable.
