ORGANIZER: COPS FOR KIDS WITH CANCER INC
EVENT: 2015 Boston Marathon
Thank you for visiting my fundraising page. Cancer is a disease that I and so many others have been affected by. This year I will be running the Boston Marathon to help raise money for an amazing charity. The money I raise will help families that have a child battling Cancer. CFKWC has established a process to get sorely needed funds to individual families caught in the web of pediatric cancer. In addition to the crushing emotional toll taken, there is a financial domino effect in having a child diagnosed with cancer. Most often, one parent must leave a job. Some treatments are not fully covered by insurance. It’s expensive to come to the city every day to be with your child – gas costs, parking fees and meals can sometimes add as much as $300 a week to a budget already cut in half. Families, once solvent, now find themselves on the financial brink. So please, help if you can. Thanks!!!
