ORGANIZER: The Bone Marrow Foundation, Inc.
EVENT DATE: Nov 03, 2013
I have never been a dedicated runner but I have been 100% dedicated to The Bone Marrow Foundation for the past 21 years since founding the organization in 1992. I will do anything to support the thousands of children and adults going through the transplant journey.
I am excited to run in the NY Marathon and raise vital funding for our patients. The training has been challenging but nothing is as challenging as undergoing a transplant or being a parent of a child going through a transplant. A child or adult in the United States is diagnosed with a blood cancer or blood disorder every 4 minutes. A transplant is the most significant medical breakthrough in the past 50 years to help save thousands of lives each year.
My fundraising goal is to raise $21,000 for the past 21 years! Please support my running effort to help make a difference!
