THE STORY:

Thank you for coming to my fundraising page! As you might know, the lottery acceptance rate for the TCS New York City Marathon is under 10%. After entering the NYC Marathon lottery for the third time this year with no luck, I was super bummed. It's my hometown marathon, I grew up along the route and loved watching as a kid, and it is my number one dream race. When I saw that email again, I decided to rethink my approach to running such an important race to me. I mean, I LOVE marathoning. I really do. I also recognize the immense privilege that it is to even be able to run at all. I have been extraordinarily fortunate in my 29 years, and, with the big 3-0 coming this April, I want to begin this decade doing something big for others while also doing something I love!


Therefore, I am so excited to share that this November 5, 2017, I am running the TCS New York City Marathon as a member of Team V! Team V is part of the V Foundation for Cancer Research,  and my fundraising goal is at least $3,500. I know what you're thinking. "WOW! That's a lot of money! How will she ever do it?!" And that is where you fine folks come in. I need your help reaching that $3,500 goal! Every bit counts. Whether you donate to honor a family member or friend, or if you simply want to donate to support a great organization, I appreciate all of your support! 
 

A little bit about the V Foundation...

Team V is the official endurance fundraising program for the V Foundation for Cancer Research. We are a committed team of athletes fundraising with strength and determination for the fight against cancer. Our team’s runners are fueled by the spirit of Jim Valvano and his inspiring words, “Don’t Give Up . . . Don’t Ever Give Up!”®

The V Foundation was founded by ESPN and award-winning NC State basketball coach Jim Valvano. Coach Valvano was diagnosed with cancer in 1993. When he created the Foundation, Jim knew that it was too late for research to save him, but he spent his last months alive creating a legacy of hope for others diagnosed with this debilitating disease.

In the past 24 years, The V Foundation has awarded more than $170 million to cancer research and related programs nationwide.

100% of donations go to cancer research. Not one single penny goes towards operating expenses. 

Jim Valvano’s “Don’t Give Up . . . Don’t Ever Give Up!”® spirit is alive now more than ever, and it is the perfect motto to carry us through the largest marathon in the world.  With continued support, we will forge ahead with innovative research. Join us on Team V or support us through a donation – either way, you are making a difference and saving lives. There is not a moment to lose in the fight against cancer.

Please help me raise at least $3,500 in the fight against cancer. Click "Donate to this Fundraiser" to get started! Thank you so much!
