THE STORY:

This will be my 5thLA Marathon and my 3rdyear raising money for this wonderful cause ThinkCure. ThinkCure is out there raising funds in essence to stop cancer. If you have donated in the past then you already know my story and why I raise the money. It’s to complete a promise I made and in the memory of our friend Issac Jr Elias. Never underestimate the impact you have on someone else’s life, sometimes the smallest things you might tell someone might have such a big impact that the ripples continue to show years after the words were uttered.

 

First and foremost, I just want to thank everyone who has donated in the past and has continued to donate. I understand we all want to help and it’s not always the easiest thing to do financially. But I want you to know that I don’t take any donation in vain. It means a lot that you are able to donate anything. So I promise you that I put my body to the test day in and day out. I push as hard as I can and when I have nothing left I push even harder. I want to know that when I cross that finish line I did not let anyone done because I did all I could. If you don’t believe me I invite you to come and work out with me any day of the week, ill be the one sweating.

 

In 2011 I have one regret and it still haunts me and very soon ill be able to erase that. That regret was that I could not break 4 hours as I had promised. I was happy to finish especially in those conditions and I felt a great sense of happiness at the end because it was one of the hardest races I had done. However I didn’t do what I set out to do and that is break 4 hours. I finished in 4 hour 22 minutes 20 seconds.

 

Last year, I made a promise and I had to match your donation. This year I am ready to make another promise. This year if I don’t break 4 hours, I will donate $25 for every minute over 4 hours and if I don’t break 4 hours ill never run a marathon again. I am ready to give up something I love for something I believe in. Please donate and show our support to put an end to cancer. I do it in the memory of all our loved ones.

 

Thank you.
