On March 29, 2020, I will be running the Philly Love Run Half Marathon for Legacy of Hope.
Legacy of Hope is a 501(c)3 tax exempt nonprofit based in Philadelphia, focusing on partnerships with local businesses and major cancer centers to bring an unparalleled level of comprehensive support to Philadelphia’s most financially distressed cancer patients, and providing the greatest donor impact in cancer research by utilizing the collective knowledge of a scientific review board to find and fund Philadelphia’s most cutting edge and promising cancer research.
