BENEFITING: Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation
EVENT DATE: May 20, 2017
In August of 2016, I lost my Mom to cancer. Like most people, I've been affected in some way by cancer throughout my life. I've seen friends, friends of friends and close family members battle against this terrible disease and too many have lost that battle. I've always been one to stand on the sidelines and make donations rather than participate in events myself, maybe because it was easier. After watching Mom suffer so much and do so with such bravery and grace, how can I just stand on the sidelines anymore? In 2016, I did this event for the first time and Mom got such a kick out of it. I can think of no better way for me to honor Mom and everyone that has to deal with cancer in their everyday lives then to go out there and roll around in the mud again.
If you could find it in your hearts to give a little something to help, whether it's $1 or $10 , I would be forever grateful and thankful.
I'm definitley no superstar but I promise all of you this - I will do my best and I will leave everything out there - for you, for your loved ones and for everyone affected by cancer. I love you Mom!
