THE STORY:

This year has been tough. In the span of one week I lost my grandfather and my good friend, David, both to cancer. Currently, one of the most amazing women I know is battling the disease. As a small token of my love for these people I wanted to find a way to honor and support them, as well as their families and friends. 

And so, I will be participating in the 2013 LA Marathon as a member of Team Stand Up To Cancer. Pop Pop and David, I'll be running the 26.2 miles in memory of you both. And to my superwoman Alma & to Aunt Sandy, every step is for you! This charity is an especially neat one for me to be a part of, being that it draws much support from the entertainment industry, an industry that both David and Alma have had an impact on.

My fundraising goal for this amazing charity is at least $1,000 - every single penny counts when it comes to researching a cure for cancer. Please take a minute to check out SU2C's website to read all about the amazing things they do.

By the way, 100% of all (tax-deductible) funds raised go directly to cancer research. For more information on exactly how SU2C uses their funds, check out the Donation FAQ page

Stay tuned for training updates!

With so much love, my soon to be tired legs thank you :)
