My Generous Supporters!

I'm back for my 3rd (and final) marathon. Once again I'm raising money as part of Race Towards A Cure.  The money I raise will benefit cutting-edge brain cancer research through Accelerate Brain Cancer Cure (ABC2). 

As you may know ABC2 has been my running charity of choice, I first learned of their organization through David Cook. I ran on David's ABC2 2012 LA Marathon Team and have run Race for Hope DC every year since 2010. I'm thrilled to be traveling with my good friend, Deana to Dublin. Deana now works for ABC2 which is just another reason to support a great cause! 

I can't do this without your help! Please consider supporting my efforts with a donation (may I suggest $26 in honor of 26.2 miles) and join in the fight against brain cancer.  To make a donation, click on the "Donate" button to the right.

Thanks in advance for your support!

If you aren't familiar with my story:

In November 2007 my Dad unexpectedly passed away from complications of gastric bypass surgery. I wasn’t much of an American Idol watcher, but in Winter 2008 I heard buzz about David Cook after his audition and watching/looking forward to American Idol that season helped me get through the early weeks of coping with the loss of my Dad. I became a major fan of David, his story, and his music which became part of my regular work out soundtrack.

I donated to David’s team at Race For Hope 2009. I was stunned by the bravery and dedication to run in wake of his brother’s passing from a brain tumor the night before the race. Even though I didn’t lose my Father to cancer, his loss touched me and motivated me further to get fit and healthy. The following year when David announced he was going to run Race for Hope again I knew I wanted to join him and raise money myself. I was NEVER a runner. However slowly, but surely I started.

I have gained so much from running - I’ve found peace, confidence, and good health. I’ve given myself the gift a long healthy life due to running. My hope for everyone is to have long healthy lives and finding ABC2 has been such a blessing in my life.
