BENEFITING: FRIENDS4MICHAEL FOUNDATION
ORGANIZER: FRIENDS4MICHAEL FOUNDATION
EVENT: Marine Corps Marathon 2015
EVENT DATE: Oct 25, 2015
The Friends4Michael Foundation was started by a friend's brother named Michael who had brain cancer and later passed. The mission of The Friends4Michael Foundation is to support children like Michael and their families, to keep alive the memory of Michael and his spirit, to increase awareness of the devastating effects of brain tumors on afflicted children and their families, and to continue to “Fight for a Cure” for this horrible disease.
The primary effort of the Foundation is to provide assistance, including financial, to families across the country whose children are fighting a brain tumor. The Foundation also provides support for directed charities which supported Michael in his memory.
As many of you know, I was very involved with Teardrops to Rainbows in the DC area for 12 years, a volunteer-run organization that provided assistance to families who had children undergoing cancer treatment. So when I had the opportunity to support Friends4Michael and participate in the Marine Corps Marathon, I couldn't say no!
Thank you for your support!!
