THE STORY:

I am going to run the 2015 Boston Marathon for Project Purple in memory of my mom who we lost to Pancreatic Cancer in 2002.

Your support will help Project Purple fund advanced research, support patients and create hope.  

This will be my 30th marathon--14th Boston.  I am running with a number, provided by my running club, Heartbreak Hill Striders for volunteerism and club support.  Since getting my first Boston charity number in 2000, even as a qualified runner I have fund raised since 2001.  Why do I do it?--Because I can.  I am honored to have some supporters since Boston 2000.  

This year's Boston will be a bit lonely for me as Adam will not be starting in Hopkinton this year.  I will look forward to him getting me through the Newton Hills.  I will have my wingman for the toughest part of the race. 

Seems I hear more and more about those touched by this disease, as I have been.  This is a very personal effort for me.  I hope you will make this your personal effort and support me this year.  We have a chance to do what we can to help others. No donation is too small as we can never know which dollar will make the difference.

Pancreatic Cancer is the 4th largest killer of all cancers and the least funded of the top 10 cancer killers today. We need to do more - we have lost too many friends, family and loved ones to this evil cancer.  It has a five-year survival rate of just 6%.  I don't want to see others suffer like my mom did.

To learn more, please go to http://www.run4projectpurple.org/  Project Purple is an entirely volunteer organization -- every dollar raised goes to supporting the mission.

Please consider being one of my sponsors in the memory of my mom and all those taken by this disease to support our efforts so that lives can be saved.

Project Purple has a mission of Running To Beat Pancreatic Cancer!
