BENEFITING: FRIENDS4MICHAEL FOUNDATION
ORGANIZER: FRIENDS4MICHAEL FOUNDATION
EVENT: Marine Corps Marathon 2015
EVENT DATE: Oct 25, 2015
I'm running the 2015 MCM for the Friends 4 Michael Foundation (F4M) to support the families of children fighting brain tumors. All of the hours spent and miles I'm running to train for my first marathon is nothing compared to the sacrifices these families have to make to give their angels the best chance for life.
I've run the Race for Hope (Michael's Race) for F4M and know the Kwinn family through their daughter Cheryl, my sorority sister and former roommate. The Kwinns continue to carry on the mission of their late son Michael Johnny by supporting these families and the Race for Hope every spring in DC. To learn more about F4M, please check them out at www.friends4michael.org.
I hope that my family, friends and colleagues will assist me in supporting the F4M family through my fundraising for this race. I know that the money raised will be used for good. If you want to follow my training, check me out at http://smashrun.com/amy.jacobi/overview/2015 to follow my progress.
