On Sunday, October 25, 2020, I will be virtually joining the National Pancreas Foundation (Team Pancreas) and the Marine Corps 50K by running 31 miles through the streets of Washington, DC to raise money for cutting-edge research for those suffering from pancreas disease
The NPF is the only foundation dedicated to patients who are suffering from all forms of pancreas disease – pediatric pancreatitis, acute pancreatitis, chronic pancreatitis, and pancreatic cancer. Working for the NPF for over 3 years, I am passionate about the mission as I have seen how we help those that are suffering from pancreas disease and I want to raise money for research dollars (we've given over 4 million to fund 124 grants).
How can you help? BUY A MILE!
For the 50K- I will have a bracelet with mile markers and names of the donor (you!). For $25 you can buy a mile. Do you want to "buy" Mile 1? Where it's a warm - up, and I'm feeling good! Mile 4 when life is puppies and ice cream! Or Mile 13.1 where I think "why?!" Mile 16 where I'm usually thinking about french fries and a burger. Or mile 31 where I need to dig deep and not pass out?
Whatever mile you want to "buy", I will run that mile for you (and for those that are suffering from pancreas disease). Thank you in advance for your donation! <3
