BENEFITING: B CURED
ORGANIZER: B CURED
EVENT DATE: Nov 04, 2012
I am thrilled to be running the NYC Marathon again in 2012 as part of Team B*CURED! I am proud to be a member of an organization where the founders and team give so selflessly towards working to find a cure for brain cancer.
In September 2006, Karena's mother, Leslie Bullock, passed away after a valiant fight against brain cancer. To honor her memory, Karena and I continue to work with B*CURED to help raise awareness and funding for brain cancer research. Some chilling facts about brain cancer are that each day, nearly 550 people in the United States are diagnosed with a primary or metastatic brain tumor. There are no known causes and research is woefully underfunded. The survival rate for brain cancer is significantly lower than other types of cancer.
B*CURED is an all-volunteer organization with limited overhead. Over 95% of our donations go directly towards funding critical brain cancer research. Members of B*CURED have personal experience with brain cancer - we know the devastation the disease causes to patients and their families.
Please donate to continue our fight against brain cancer and help me reach my fundraising goal of $10,000.
