Hey guys!!! Thank you so much for visiting my page!
So here's the deal- Miles Worthwhile is my personal fundraiser I have set up in conjunction with registering for the New Orleans Jazz Half Marathon to benefit the Cancer Program at Children's Hospital New Orleans. This will be my very first half marathon (ahh!!!) and I feel extremely privileged to be able to support such an incredible cause along the way; making the miles worthwhile! BOOM!
All proceeds donated here and proceeds from the race itself will help fund cancer care, support cancer research projects at the Research Institute for Children at Children's Hospital, and will provide assistance to the families of cancer patients.
About the race: (from http://jazzhalf.com/) This event celebrates the lives of the champions who are currently receiving treatment for cancer and those who have been cured. It also honors the Children’s Hospital patients, as well as the thousands of other young children, who lost their battle with childhood cancer this year.
About Children's Hospital: (from www.chnola.org/)
Children's Hospital is a 247-bed, not-for-profit medical center offering the most advanced pediatric care for children from birth to 21 years. With over 40 pediatric specialties and more than 400 physicians, it is the only full-service hospital exclusively for children in Louisiana and the Gulf South.
Any donation, no matter how large or small, is appreciated and will be used to care for so many precious young lives and their families in need.
If you are interested in running the race (there is also a 5K and a 1.8mi walk) and/or would like to join my fundraising team, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks again for visiting my page and for your donation. Every single cent helps to make a difference!
The race is Sat, Nov 1. Wish me luck! :)
