I am running to raise money for the Rachel Minkove Memorial Fund in memory of my cousin Rachel who valiantly fought cancer over the past four years. Rachel died on Tisha b'Av, a week before my wedding. I think about her often, and it is a privilege to honor her memory by encouraging donations to the memorial fund bearing her name. Suburban Orthodox Congregation in Baltimore, MD, will be donating the raised funds to causes that were dear to Rachel, such as oncology support for young adults battling cancer. May her memory be a blessing and an inspiration to us all.
