I never thought I would ever run a marathon. I fell in love with running 10 years ago, and while it brought me so much joy I never thought I needed 5 hours of it. However three years ago I decided to jump in and run the last 8 miles of the NYC Marathon with my dear friend who was running for B*CURED and it was hands down one of the most powerful experiences of my life. To run with a friend for such an incredible cause brought a new dimension to my life.
I am beyond excited to pound the pavement for my 3rd NYC Marathon on November 3, 2019. I am joining a dear friend and warrior to fund a cure for brain cancer. I have seen too many people I love suffer from this terrible disease. Please join me as I fight to END BRAIN CANCER for B*CURED!
B*CURED is an all volunteer organization from Greenwich, CT wth a mission to END BRAIN CANCER. Our community has been deeply affected by brain cancer losing parents, siblings, spouses, friends, and even children to this disease. Over the last 40 years, most cancer prognoses have had positive changes, but not brain cancer. in 2016, brain cancer surpassed leukemia as the number one cancer related death among one - 19 year olds.
B*CURED is determined to change the course of this disease by funding innovative research and the brightest researchers across top hospitals and insitutions (including Brigham and Women's Hospital, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, Cleveland Clinic, Stanford, Columbia, U of Texas - MD Anderson and more). Please visit www.bcured.org to learn more about the organization, where every single dollar goes and the research itself.
