Run Against Cancer

For those of you who don’t know, I’m running a half Ironman in a little less than a month. And I’m not just doing it for me, I’m also trying to raise money for the organization Infinity and Beyond. This organization was started by my friend whose father was battling cancer. He found that there were many underserved areas of cancer research that could really benefit from somewhat smaller fundraising efforts (as compared to organizations like Livestrong). My friend did his first fundraiser by raising money to bike across the country, now it’s my turn to help out.

 My grandmother fought and beat breast cancer, but my grandfather was not so lucky. He passed away just a few months ago after prostate cancer visited and revisited his life. Nearly everyone has been affected in some way by this terrible disease. That’s why I’ve decided to dedicate my 70.3 miles to all of those people. You never know if that one dollar you donated helped to fund research that eradicates or greatly reduces cancer. If you have an extra dollar or two, please consider giving to the cause! You can find my donation page here. I really appreciate any help you can give me to reach my goal!
