UPDATE 07/13/19: After quite a few extremely generous donations in such a short period of time, I've decided to make a small increase in my fundraising goal to $1k! Thank you to everyone for their extremely generous and kind support! <3
I don't think that I could have found a more fitting charity team to partner with and run alongside for my first ever marathon! For those who know me, they know that finding a cure for pancreatic cancer is near and dear to my heart as I lost my mother to this horrible disease in 2016. Not only will I be running my first marathon in memory of my mother, Kim DiGiovanni Aluisi, but I will also be looking up to her for strength to help me complete this daunting challenge.
On Sunday, October 27, 2019, the National Pancreas Foundation Team will be running through the streets of Washington, DC to raise money for cutting-edge research for those suffering from pancreatitis and pancreatic cancer, advocating for new and better therapies, and providing support and education for patients, caregivers, and health care professionals.
The NPF is the only foundation dedicated to patients who are suffering from all forms of pancreas disease – pediatric pancreatitis, acute pancreatitis, chronic pancreatitis and pancreatic cancer.
Thank you for helping me support this amazing mission and as well as providing hope for those with pancreas disease.
