Family, friends and maybe even some very kind strangers who have stumbled upon my donation page—
I can’t thank you enough for taking the time to visit and read about the latest challenge I’ve set for myself. I have joined Team Imerman Angels (IA) to run the 2020 Chicago Marathon on October 11th, 2020!
In the world we live in, it’s no stretch to say that everyone we know has likely been affected by cancer in some way. It’s a word that universally strikes a ray of fearful and negative emotions by everyone involved: the fighters themselves, caretakers, family members and beloved friends.
Imerman Angels is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization who's mission is to provide personalized connections that enable 1-on-1 cancer support to all parties involved. IA strives to ensure no individual faces cancer alone by offering supportive services through a unique process that partners anyone seeking support with someone just like them – a “Mentor Angel”. A Mentor Angel is a cancer survivor or caregiver who most importantly has faced the same type of cancer.
I’m so lucky and honored to join in on this mission as I try to fundraise $1,250 so that fighters and caregivers can receive the same amazing perpetual support from Imerman Angels.
I want to thank you all in advance for your consideration of this great cause, and whether it’s a “Way to Go!” text during my long runs on the weekends, sharing my fundraising page on social media or following the "Donate" button above, we will create our very own special team of support.
Thank you SO much!
