We are running to honor and support our cousin Joel, who is fighting as hard as he can to beat an aggressive case of acute leukemia.
Joel was diagnosed with leukemia in January. He has always been extraordinarily smart, tenacious and upbeat, but we’ve been blown away by how upbeat, smart and tenacious he has been through every step of this process. Cancer has never faced such a fierce competitor.
We are extremely happy that we can raise money to show our love for Joel and help make the fight a little easier for future sufferers.
As we get our physical hearts pumping running over the Ben Franklin Bridge, our metaphorical hearts will be with Joel’s family: Pascale, David, Jeremy, Caitlin and Luca. We are running for them too.
Amy, Cynthia and Jessica
