BENEFITING: Our Clubhouse
ORGANIZER: Our Clubhouse
EVENT: Pittsburgh Marathon 2016
EVENT DATE: May 01, 2016
Let me just start by saying cancer is brutal and unrelenting and I HATE IT. This year I decided to run in honor of my dad, Joe Kvederis, and give to a charity benifitting those whose lives have been touched by cancer.
I lost my dad in September after he battled for over a year pancreatic cancer. My dad was one of my biggest supporters when I ran races in the past. He drove me to most of my races and cheered me on with a cowbell in hand.
By joining Team Our Clubhouse I will be running for all those families that have been impacted by a cancer diagnosis. Our Clubhouse is building a community that offers support groups and activities to provide some positivity through challenging times. I personally know the importance of finding an outlet and support for the many emotions you feel when you lose a parent to cancer.
We are all in this together.
