BENEFITING: GOLF FIGHTS CANCER
ORGANIZER: GOLF FIGHTS CANCER
EVENT: Boston Marathon 2014
EVENT DATE: Apr 21, 2014
I am running for Golf Fights Cancer. I have the pleasure of being friends with one of the founders of the charity, Brian Oates who cheerfully keeps the pressure on me to train and raise money. Golf Fights Cancer is committed to making direct gifts that are specifically targeted for equipment, research, services and projects that make a tangible impact in the fight against cancer. Please check out their website, www.golffightscancer.org to learn more about some of the great programs the GFC has supported and feel good that your donation is going to a small group that is making a direct impact in the fight against cancer.
The reality is that cancer touches every family and leaves sadness in its wake – we need to find a cure. From a personal perspective, my Mom was diagnosed with breast cancer 13 years ago and again 3 months ago so it has hit my family in a very real way. I will be thinking about my Mom on the day and all of the women who have fought breast cancer.
Given the tragic events of last year and the magnitude of giving that surrounds the Boston Marathon, it is more important than ever that the Boston Marathon beats all previous years for fundraising and I want to play a role. We can’t let them win. Help me make a difference for all those fighting cancer by sending a message together that we are Boston Strong.
