This March, I will be participating in the Philadelphia Love Run Half Marathon and am hoping to raise at least $250 for their official charity partner "Legacy of Hope."
Legacy of Hope is a Philadelphia-based nonprofit organization that partners with local businesses and major cancer centers to help raise money for, and support Philadelphia's most financially distressed cancer patients and their families. The organization also provides support for promising cancer research to ensure that the research can come to fruition before running out of funding.
As many of you know, my father passed away from cancer about 6.5 years ago. Raising money to support cancer research and assist patients currently fighting their battles with this disease is something that is therefore very meaningful to me, and I am very excited to be running to support such a good cause.
Thank you in advance for your support!
