EVENT DATE: May 26, 2013
Dear friends and family,
I am very excited to be joining the UVM College of Medicine Marathon Team for my very first half-marathon! The event will take place in May, on Memorial Day weekend. I will be running to fundraise for the Steps to Wellness program, a local medically-based exercise rehabilitation program tailored specifically to cancer survivors. I would really love your support for my fundraising and training efforts.
Thank you so much!
STEPS TO WELLNESS at the Vermont Cancer Center helps cancer survivors maintain function during initial oncology therapy and provides a pathway toward improved fitness and quality of life after initial therapy. The program includes a physical therapy evaluation, medical assessment, individualized exercise prescription, education, and the collection of physiological and psychological measures to evaluate and improve the program. This research will enhance understanding of the potential benefits of rehabilitation for cancer survivors.
