Last year I missed my dad running his 31st Boston Marathon. When I spoke to him on the phone afterwards, he was bummed about his time and told me it may be time to hang em up. I didn’t want his last Boston to be one that I missed so I made a deal with him: if I ran Boston in 2020, he would lace them up for another year...
Well, time to put my money where my mouth is! I will be running the 2020 Boston Marathon and raising money for One Mission, a charity that does whatever it takes to get kids through cancer. I’m excited to be a part of and support such an excellent cause.
My goal is to raise $12,000 and any donations would be much appreciated!
One Mission is a pediatric cancer charity that does whatever it takes to get kids through cancer treatment.
One Mission programs make living in the hospital less lonely and stressful, bring back joy in a time of fear and uncertainty, and give kids and their loved ones the support they need to get through the emotional and financial challenges of treatment.
Bringing smiles, support, friendship and fun to kids fighting cancer and their families.
Kids with cancer are still just kids. They love movie nights, play dates, ice cream and pizza parties. They love books, games, and toys. And One Mission does whatever it takes to make those things possible for pediatric cancer patients and their families. Whether it's decorating a hospital room, providing art kits and crafts, putting on birthday parties and holiday celebrations or paying for expensive hospital parking, these things go a long way to making life better during treatment for kids fighting cancer and their families.
