THE STORY:

I'M IN, and I'm in for a good cause.  I am running the 2011 NYC Marathon in honor of Christian Clopp.  Christian is a sweet little boy who is currently battling an inoperable brain tumor with the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.  I met Christian about 3 years ago when he was a Tiger Scout with my son in Mays Landing Pack 254.  He also played on my son's U8 soccer team.  Last fall, Christian was diagnosed with the tumor, and has been battling ever since.  What amazes me about him is his positive outlook and the fact that he is always smiling and happy.  I wanted to help Christian and his family, and once I found the Kortney Rose Foundation, I knew I had found a way.  CHOP is an amazing hospital and if there's a way to cure pediatric brain tumors, they will be sure to find it.  Research requires money of course, and so I am going to do my best to raise as much of it as I can.

My initial goal is to reach $2500.  My end all goal is to raise $5000 or more by race day.  Please give if you can.  Every single dollar will go a long way.

Keep fighting Christian.

KORTNEY ROSE FOUNDATION INC wrote -

Kortrney Rose Gillette was a nine year old outgoing child who was healthy one day and a brain tumor patient the next. Shortly after her ninth birthday her mother noticed that Kortney's eye had turned in. The family immediately brought her to an eye doctor and after an MRI found out the shocking and horrible news that Kortney had one of the rarest forms of brain tumor a child can get. They were told the tumor was inoperable and Kortney had a less than 2% chance of survival for five years. Kortney died 4 months after diagnosis. Kortney's mother immediately started The Kortney Rose Foundation to turn her grief into action to help other children with brain tumors in Kortney's name through the promise of research.

In the past four years the foundation has donated over $378,000 to brain tumor research, and in 2009 had legislation passed naming May as Brain Tumor Awareness Month in the State of New Jersey.

2011 will be the third year that The Kortney Rose Foundation is fortunate to have a TEAM KORTNEY in the ING NYC Marathon. This event is very importatnt to our annual fundraising effort and we hope you will HELP US HELP DOCTORS HELP KIDS  and GET BRAIN TUMORS OFF KIDS' MINDS! Please give what you can. We are grateful for every penny!
