BENEFITING: AMERICAN LIVER FOUNDATION
ORGANIZER: AMERICAN LIVER FOUNDATION
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
On October 25, 2009, my father passed from Liver Disease. In the name and spirit of my father: Terry Lee Rogers Van Fossen, I vow to always raise Liver Health awareness to help save lives.
I cannot wait to run my first TCS New York City Marathon on Nov. 6, 2016. I look forward to every mile knowing I am helping save lives, an honor I am proud to partake. Training has taught me so much about living a healthy lifestyle while helping others do the same.
My father cared for and loved all people so I know he will be proud of my commitment to stand up against this deadly disease as a community.
He was forty-nine when he passed away, six months after his diagnosis - a life taken far too soon. Thus, every mile and the pain that comes with it, I will confront with strength and hope. Together we can save lives by raising awareness if we are strong and resilient.
I invite you to stand with me and support Liver wellness by attending this amazing race if you can and/or making a contribution - no matter the amount- to the American Liver Foundation. Your support is most appreciated.
Standing together, saving lives one mile at a time,
