Thanks for visiting my fundraising page. I'm running the NYC Marathon to raise money for two amazing organizations that are now one -The Samfund and Expect Miracles Foundation. More details about the mission below.
I count myself lucky that neither I or anyone in my immediate family has had to battle cancer but I know a few people who have and tackling this disease takes an immense amount of physical and emotional energy. Adding the cost of treatment and support during and after can be a burden that is too much to bear for some families. The Samfund and Expect Miracles Foundations aim to support these individuals through direct financial assistance. It's my personal belief that we're all in this together and I hope this is a small way that I can help.
Have you heard the exciting news?
The Samfund and Expect Miracles Foundation are excited to announce that as of July 1, 2019, they have partnered as one organization to maximize their impact in the cancer community.

100% of the proceeds through the racing program will be designated to Samfund Programs for young adult cancer survivors.
Being cancer-free isn't free. And for young adults, moving forward after cancer treatment can feel close to impossible. In addition to everyday costs like rent and groceries, young adults face stacks of medical bills and ongoing co-pays, while also dealing with side effects of treatment and difficulty returning to (or finding) a job.
But what we've learned at The Samfund is that, with a little bit of support at just the right time, young adults can - and do - thrive after cancer. Since 2005, The Samfund has given out over $2 million in grants to young adults across the country, with almost every cancer diagnosis imaginable. These dollars -- your donations -- make it possible for them to catch their breath, pay their bills, and begin moving forward.
This year The Samfund is honored to be an official charity partner of the TCS NYC Marathon for the second time. Thank you so much for your support!For more information, please visit www.thesamfund.org or call 617-938-3484.
