BENEFITING: COLON CANCER CHALLENGE FOUNDATION
ORGANIZER: COLON CANCER CHALLENGE FOUNDATION
EVENT DATE: Mar 19, 2017
On March 19, 2017 I am honored to be running in the 2017 United Airlines NYC Half Marathon for the Colon Cancer Challenge Foundation. I am reaching out to everyone I know to help me raise money to fight this disease . I will be running in honor of two special people. First, Anthony Mascia ( The Commish) the father of my good friends Ann Marie and John and husband of Mary Ellen , who passed away from colon cancer in 2011. James Grotticelli my best friend of over 30 years was diagnosed with colon cancer just last year after and after a tough year of fighting this disease is now cancer free. Any amount you can give is so greatly appreciated.
Not only will I be training like crazy for my run, but more importantly, I’m going to leverage all that training and hard work to help raise money for the Colon Cancer Challenge Foundation and the fight against colorectal cancer. Funds raised will go to life saving public awareness, prevention, screening and research programs aimed all focused on reducing the number of loved ones we lose to this preventable, treatable and beatable disease.
