I'm running my first marathon and here is why:
Cancer kills 1,500 Americans every day. That’s one person every minute. It has certainly plagued me, my family members, friends, colleagues, and acquaintances. I'm sure each and every one of you has heard a similar story.
I've decided to join Team for Stand Up To Cancer in the ING NYC Marathon and have pledged to raise $5000.00. SU2C is dedicated to accelerate groundbreaking cancer research that will get new therapies to patients quickly and save lives. This unique organization is putting together the best and the brightest minds in cancer research – those on the edge of accomplishment – investing in their projects and taking the bureaucratic obstacles out of their way. By building interdisciplinary "dream teams" of scientists, clinicians, technicians and other experts, who focus on a specific cancer problem, SU2C tracks their progress in real time so that everyone who invests can see how their participation is creating real change.

This is where the end of cancer and my race begins.
