BENEFITING: RONALD MCDONALD HOUSE OF NEW YORK
I came across Emily's FaceBook page through a friend's share. I don't know Emily but I love her already. Emily a sweet little 2 year old who has the strength of an adult. That's because she has been battling neuroblastoma since 2014.
Since I'm running in the NYC Marathon this November, I asked Emily's family if I may run in her honor because of the amazing strength and resilience this little girl has demonstrated. I also asked them if I can help them fundraise to cover their medical cost. Her parents told me that their insurance covered a lot of Emily's medical expenses and that they aren't in need of any financial assistance; however they recommended that a run to raise donations for a charity that helps families dealing with pediatric cancer. We decided Ronald McDonald House was a perfect fit. RMDH NYC hosted Emily and her family while she was in town for treatment. Please join me in supporting this wonderful organization and also to honor this special little girl!
