In honor of Zach Lederer turning 27 today and in conjuction with Zaching Day here in Maryland. I am going to be challenging myself to either run 2.07 miles OR bike 12.7 miles EACH day over the next 127 days. We are asking anyone to donate any amount they can to support this great charity. Any day that I miss during the 127 days, I will donate $10.
Zach's story is below and you can find more information at www.zachingagainstcancer.org
At the age of 18, University of Maryland freshman and basketball manager Zachary Lederer was diagnosed with brain cancer for the second time in his young life. In January 2012, after surgery to resect a brain tumor, Zach asked his dad to take a picture of him making a strongman pose to show friends and family that he would be just fine. The picture quickly went viral and others hopped on board in making the pose called “Zaching,” sending their pictures to Zach to post online. Since that time thousands of pictures have been received. Through the Zaching Against Cancer Foundation, we hope to further spread support and strength to others battling cancer and all those connected to cancer patients. What does the “ZACHING” pose represent?
Zach wanted all of his family and friends to know he was going to be alright and fight cancer when he made the pose.
It represents Zach’s STRENGTH, COURAGE, DETERMINATION and HOPE for those affected by cancer.
