With just a teeny bit of trepidation, I am proud to announce that I will be running the NYC Marathon on November 5th in support of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
This will be my first full Marathon and I am running it in memory of three family members I have lost to cancer in the last decade – My mother, my sister and my uncle.
The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society was started in 1949 with the goal of raising funds to help in the fight against blood cancers. Over the years, much of the research work done with their support has led to treatments in many other forms of cancer.
I am honored to play a part in the continued effort to support this important and necessary work and have made a commitment to raise a minimum of $3500 for the cause.
I will keep you updated on my training and fundraising progress.
