EVENT NAME: Detroit Half Marathon
RAISED To Date: $13,235
This year in October, I’ll set out for my first half marathon running in Detroit. I started running in August and will continue to train. It’s not always easy but I remind myself how difficult chemo was and thinking about that, I can push through any pain or discomfort.
I am running a half Marathon to support an organization I’ve been involved with since my diagnosis. FORCE: Facing Our Risk of Cancer Empowered is a 16 year old organization dedicated to helping families with hereditary cancer. Nearly a year ago, I joined their board and now proudly serve as board president. I've formed a team to run or walk the Detroit Free Press Marathon and I've set a goal for Team FORCE runs Detroit to raise $20,000 for an organization that does so much for so many.
Lacey turned 16 this year and she and all of her amazing and wonderful friends are a constant reminder to me of the reason I fight so hard. She has a 50/50 chance of inheriting this mutation, and I need to do everything in my power to change what that means for her. It’s for Lacey, her friends and all the other young girls out there that I ask for your support.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your continuing support of my journey.
FORCE has made incredible progress with a very limited budget. Here’s a quick snapshot:
I sent personal emails to my friends, family and colleagues, posted on my personal Facebook page and organized a few theater event fundraisers to add to my efforts.
