BENEFITING: American Cancer Society
My name is Nick Lord and I am a student-athlete at Gettysburg College for the class of 2020. I am creating this page because I want to raise money for the American Cancer Society and contribute to their goal of "eliminating Cancer as a major health problem by preventing cancer, saving lives, and diminishing suffering from cancer, through research, education, advocacy, and service." I know many people who have lost a fight with Cancer, including my Grandfather years ago who was the most influential and impactful person I have ever met. He inspired so many people and changed so many lives, especially mine. Even though he passed away when I was young, I would't be where I am today without him. Recently, my best friend's Father also lost a fight to cancer that lasted a very long time. His father was an amazing individual and inspired and impacted many people, especially my best friend's who I've known since kindergarten. I can't stand to just sit here and watch these incredible people fight this terrible disease. The amount of people who suffer and die from this disease is unfathomable, and I hope more than anything that one day, the world finds a cure. I feel it is my obligation as a citizen and as a grandson to my Grandfather, to make a difference, no matter how small, and help in the race for a cure. Any amount helps and 100% of the money donated goes to the American Cancer Society. Thank you!
