BENEFITING: TEXAS 4000 FOR CANCER
ORGANIZER: TEXAS 4000 FOR CANCER
EVENT: Austin Marathon 2017
EVENT DATE: Feb 19, 2017
While the fight against cancer has been a huge part of my life for some time now, my experience as a rider on the 2014 Texas 4000 team has given me even more reasons to fight. I have taken on the stories of my teammates, their families, and the stories of those I met along the way to Alaska. I currently work as a Cancer Information Specialist at The American Cancer Society. My job entails talking with cancer patients and caregivers every day, answering questions about their diagnoses and searching for resources to help in their journeys. Every call I receive is a new story and a new passion to continue in this fight, a fight that is far from over.
With this run I hope to honor the names that I carried with me to Alaska and the stories that have touched my life since my team rode into Anchorage. Please consider joining me in this fight. Thank you for your support!
Yours in the fight against cancer,
