I am running the Boston Tough Mudder on June 29 with Project Purple raising money for Pancreatic Cancer research. My grandfather, Richard Dawson, passed away from this horrible disease on August 31 and I am honored to have the opportunity to help fund research for this form of cancer. My grandfather was my coach, teacher, and biggest fan, so I was by his side throughout the progression of this disease. I saw firsthand the damage that this disease can do, but I also saw the epitome of hope and love from both my grandfather and our family. Thank you in advance for your generosity.
