Let’s go! Fall is here. I am ecstatic to be training for the NYC Marathon in November, but more importantly fundraising for B*Cured! After running four miles on a sunny afternoon in May, my endorphins were flowing, and I received an email from B*Cured looking for marathon participants. I thought to myself, “I can do this!” B*Cured is a volunteer organization with the sole focus of ending brain cancer. Cancer affects us all, and any bit I can do to help is all I need for motivation. I just have to do two things: 1) raise $4,000 for B*Cured. 2) finish/crush the marathon! I would love your support! Any and all pledges would be incredibly motivational and appreciated. All money raised goes directly towards brain cancer research. THANK YOU so much in advance!
Here is some more information on 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).
