BENEFITING: PRAYERS FROM MARIA FOUNDATION
ORGANIZER: PRAYERS FROM MARIA FOUNDATION
EVENT DATE: Oct 26, 2014
I Started running about 2 and a half years ago. I was overweight and out of shape. Shortly after I decided to change to a more healthy lifestyle young Kennedy Branham was diagnosed with a brain tumor. (Glioblastoma) Kennedy's story has been followed by many and she was such inspiration to all. She always had a smile on her face and was more concerned about others than herself. I would often think of this sweet young lady while out on my runs. Many times when I wanted to quit or give up on running alltogether I would think of what all Kennedy was going through. She never quit and never gave up. This angel moved on from this world in December 2013. I vowed then that I would run in honor of her and now I have the perfect chance. I will be running My first Marathon on Oct 26th, 2014. I am running to raise funds for the Prayers From Maria Foundation. This organization funds reasearch to fight childhood brain tumors. I hope you will join me in support of this worthy cause.

Prayers from Maria is proud to be a charity partner of the Marine Corps Marathon for our 2nd year! In 2013 our team of 25 runners was able to raise over $27,000 for children's glioma research! In 2014, we hope to not only grow our team to 50 members, but hope to double the amount from last year.
Please support our runners and consider making a donation to our cause. 100% of the money raised from this race will go directly to funding our next research grant, which will focus on treatment, and hopefully a cure, for these deadly childhood brain tumors.
