BENEFITING: FJC - A Foundation of Donor Advised Funds
EVENT: 2016 LA Marathon
EVENT DATE: Feb 14, 2016
Friends and Family,
As many of you know, I am currently training for my first marathon which will take place in Los Angeles on February 14, 2016. I'm emailing you today because I have decided to run the marathon in support of Wendy Walk and am asking for you to support me!
Wendy Walk is a charity started by my one of friends, Ali Landes and her two siblings Matt and Jackie. They started the organization to raise awareness and funds to fight Sarcoma, a rare form of cancer, in 2010 after their mom was first diagnosed, and have raised over $2 million to fund grants since that time. They have organized walks and various events around the country and this will be the first time that a team of marathoners will support their charity.
In March 2013, Wendy sadly passed away after an incredibly brave, inspiring, and hard fought 5 year battle against this terrible disease. I ask that you please help me honor Wendy’s memory by continuing to raise funds and awareness for this orphan cancer.
