BENEFITING: MARIO LEMIEUX FOUNDATION
ORGANIZER: MARIO LEMIEUX FOUNDATION
EVENT DATE: May 03, 2015
THANK YOU IN ADVANCE FOR YOUR GENEROUS DONATION TO HELP ME REACH MY GOAL OF $2,500!!! PLEASE CLICK ON "DONATE" TO THE RIGHT=>
I have decided to use my favorite hobby to raise money for a great charity, The Mario Lemieux Foundation.
I have challenged myself to run 2 marathons in less than 2 weeks. I will run the Boston Marathon on April 20 and the Pittsburgh Marathon on May 3.
I know that this will be a difficult and painful challenge for me. But this won't even compare to the challenge and pain that those families affected by cancer go through.
So please support me by making a donation to the The Mario Lemieux Foundation.
The Mario Lemieux Foundation is dedicated to raising funds for cancer research and patient care, as well as Austin’s Playroom Project, an initiative that creates playrooms for children and families in medical facilities. The Mario Lemieux Foundation was created in 1993 by hockey legend Mario Lemieux. In that year, Mario was enjoying the greatest season of his brilliant career and on pace to establish a new NHL scoring record. Then he was diagnosed with Hodgkin's disease.
After a successful battle with Hodgkin's, Mario is now 20 years cancer free and his experience led him to focus on ways to assist those not so fortunate. He devotes much of his time to the Foundation raising funds to help reach the ultimate goal: a cure for cancer.
Thank you so much for the support!
