I chose to run for T.E.A.L. because ovarian cancer has touched my family. Sadly, my grandmother passed away from ovarian cancer four years ago, after a 5-year battle. I cherish the time I had with her, but it was far too short.
Of late, I've been eager to challenge myself and run a half marathon. Wanting to do it for a purpose, I searched for a charity to support and partner with; and I stumbled upon T.E.A.L. T.E.A.L.’s mission made an impression on me. My grandmother was so brave facing such a devastating disease. Additionally, was grateful for the support she received from dedicated medical professionals, her loving family, and her dear friends. My family and I miss her. I was elated for being given the opportunity to run for such a great cause that truly hits home. Since my grandmother’s passing I’ve looked for a way to connect with others affected by ovarian cancer; finding T.E.A.L. allowed me to do this and raise money in support of finding a cure. By raising money to support T.E.A.L, I hope I can help a family spend more time with their loved ones.
