BENEFITING: Go2 Foundation For Lung Cancer
ORGANIZER: Go2 Foundation For Lung Cancer
EVENT DATE: Jun 16, 2013
First off, thank you for taking the time to look at my page, you are awesome! I had been debating for most of February and March about whether I should participate in a half-marathon, and when I saw that I had the option to participate as a charity runner for the Lung Cancer Foundation, I took it as a sign that I had to run. You see, my grandmother, Mary Vong, recently passed away mid-March after a long battle with lung cancer, and I wanted to do something in honor of her memory. This run seemed like the perfect opportunity.
My grandma was a nurse for over 40 years who touched countless lives during her time working in the emergency room. She stated that her favorite part of being a nurse was the opportunity to help others in need. While I will never be a nurse, raising money for Team Breathe is my opportunity to help lung cancer patients and their family members in need. The money I raise through the help of your donation will fund research and patient services for those diagnosed with lung cancer. Please help me raise funds to benefit those affected by lung cancer, in hopes that no one will have to fight unaided.
