I am tremendously excited about the opportunity to run the Marine Corp Marathon this October 27th with Team Play4TheCure!
Play4TheCure is the sport fundraising program for the National Foundation for Cancer Research which provides funding worldwide to the best scientists to enable cutting edge research that other large cancer organizations can’t and won’t fund. Play4TheCure inspires athletes and their teams to leverage their passion for sports to “Play4” loved ones affected by cancer and encourages them to actively participate in working to fund cancer research to make a difference.
The National Foundation for Cancer Research (NFCR) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides scientists in the lab the funding they need to make game-changing discoveries in cancer treatments, detection, prevention and ultimately, a cure. NFCR has distinguished itself in the cancer research sector by emphasizing long-term, transformative research often overlooked by other major funding sources. With the help of more than 5.2 million individual donors over the last 45 years, NFCR has delivered more than $360 million in funding to public education and cancer research leading to several important, life-saving discoveries.
My goal is to raise $1,310 for the Play4TheCure team, which is $50 for each of the 26.2 miles of the race, and I need your help to get there. Any amount you can give is greatly appreciated!! Don’t forget to take advantage of any gift match programs your company offers!
Thank you so much for your support!
