HOF 4 Charity

Hello Friends, Family, and those visiting my page!

I've created this GoFundMe campaign in support of a personal goal of mine that I'm excited to share with you. As an avid runner, I've decided to attempt the challenge of getting into the Rock and Roll Marathon Series Hall of Fame in 2018 while raising money for charity at the same time.

To gain entry into the RNR Marathon Series Hall of Fame, a person must run at least 15 half (or full) marathons in a calendar year. Along the way, I would like to raise $5,000 for the Cancer Research Institute.

Why Cancer Research Institute?

*60+ years, $350M+ of funding cancer research with 3100 scientists around the world.

*86% of all money spent goes towards funding programs and services, with over 120 clinical trials funded.

*Specializing in advancing Immunotherapy, one of the most promising and effective forms treatment available today for all types of cancers.

*Strong Leadership Board with representation from major pharmaceutical companies and research institutions (including Washington University, my Alma Mater!)

Please join me in supporting this cause! 100% of the amount raised here will go directly to the Cancer Research Institute to continue funding their Immunotherapy program.

For fellow runners who would like to join me at the starting line, here is a list of the races I will complete in 2018:

01/14 - Arizona
03/04 - New Orleans
03/25 - Dallas
04/08 - San Francisco
04/29 - Nashville
06/03 - San Diego
06/10 - Seattle
07/22 - Chicago
09/02 - Virginia Beach
09/16 - Philadelphia
10/07 - San Jose
10/21 - Denver
11/04 - Savannah
11/11 - Las Vegas
12/02 - San Antonio

I would love the support from anyone who wants to join me on this year-long journey! My goal is to raise the full amount by December 2nd, the last race in 2018!
