💥 BIG NEWS! 💥
I have been one of the few chosen to run the BOSTON MARATHON 2020 on the South Shore Health's team!! This will be my first ever mar and Id be lying if I said I wasnt terrified since long distance racing is completely out of my wheelhouse. But they say you cant grow unless you step out of your comfort zone so thats exacly what I plan to do - and its for charity which makes it that much more meaningful!
My goal is to raise $10,000 by May 20th 2020 for the Dana-Farber/Brigham and Women’s Cancer center because it hits home with me. I, like many of you have lost a family member to cancer. My Great Nana lost her battle with ovarian cancer a few years back but I can still remember her love for the Boston Red Sox, weekends spent at her cape house with trips to the beach and always making a stop at the penny candy store. I will be running those 26.2 miles in her memory.
'Tis the season to give! More than 1,000 new patients seek care at the Dana-Farber/Brigham and Women’s Cancer Center every year. Please consider donating to my cause of raising money for the cancer centers to give HOPE to those who have gone too long without it. $26.20 would be a GREAT donation ($1.00 for every mile I will be running!) but a little goes a long way so any amount will help!
