Running, literally, runs in my family. My dad, mom, and both grandpas have run numerous marathons and half marathons. Several of them have even run on all seven continents! So, I wanted to get in on the action! My goal? To run a 10K in all 50 states to raise $10K for pediatric cancer research at the Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center’s Division of Pediatric Oncology.
Less than 5% of the National Cancer Institute’s budget goes to pediatric cancer research. And, less than 5 cents for every dollar raised by the American Cancer Society is directed to cancers affecting children and adolescents. With your support, I hope to help improve these numbers and positively impact pediatric cancer patients’ lives.
