Relay for Life

As you may, or may not know, I lost my father-in-law to lung cancer just before Christmas. Sadly, I have also lost several friends and family members to this horrible disease. I am very fortunate to be able to say that I do know survivors as well.

I imagine that everyone has been touched by this horrible disease in one way or another.

On Friday June 17th at 7pm I will start walking/ running around a high school track..... I will walk/ run until 7am the next morning. I am not far enough along in training to be able to run the entire time, but I hope to run at least 26 miles.

I am trying to raise monies to support the research to find a cure. I understand that there are a million terrific organizations to donate to. I do hope that you can find it in your heart to make a pledge. Whether you can afford $1 or $100 I do hope that you will consider donating. Thanks. My personal pledge form can be found HERE.

Gotta find a cure.

A great cause to combat a terrible disease. Going through this with my father-in-law right now, but hopeful for a positive outlook. Good luck in your run.
