BENEFITING: HOWARD HOSPITAL FOUNDATION INC
EVENT DATE: Apr 28, 2013
Hey friends, I'm at it again!
The Claudia Mayer Cancer Resource Center has teamed up with the Columbia Triathlon Association to present the second annual Athleta Iron Girl Columbia Half Marathon on April 28, 2013. Taking place in scenic Howard County, this event will start and finish in Columbia Town Center. Produced to benefit the Claudia Mayer Cancer Resource Center, Howard County General Hospital's resource to assist those living and coping with cancer, the Athleta Iron Girl Columbia 1/2 Marathon & 5K, seeks to raise money and awareness for this amazing facility.
As a member of Team Conquer Cancer, I am running the Iron Girl Half this Sunday as well as the Pittsburgh Half Marathon the following week, and the Iron Girl Triathlon in August, because cancer has deeply affected my family and friends. Too many loved ones have lost their battle to cancer include my mother, my brother Ricky (last June), one of my female first cousins, Victor's aunt, and the mother of our new daughters. Victor's sister has fought and won against Hodgkin's. My sister Kim has battled breast cancer, and my brother Raymond has battled throat cancer. Several of my friends have also been touched by this disease.
The Claudia Mayer Cancer Resource Center is an anchor to so many people who have been touched and affected by cancer. AND it provides services to people regardless of their ability to pay. THAT is why I need your help! Why else would I run 13.1 miles TWO WEEKS IN A ROW (does that count as a full marathon?) or participate in a triathlon?!
SO, please consider donating to the Howard Hospital Foundation to benefit the Claudia Mayer Cancer Resource Center. Even $5 will help. I thank you in advance, and pray that you will be blessed by knowing that you are helping so many others.
