I am again asking for your support in the fight against childhood cancer. Again this year I have chosen to become a St. Jude Hero and have St. Jude Children’s Hospital benefit from two running events. This year my son Michael will be joining me in these races to benefit these children.
- Rugged Maniac in Brooklyn in June
- NYC Challenge in September
While I have been blessed with two healthy children, there are many parents who are not so fortunate but I know what these children have to endure as a cancer survivor myself. Please join me in supporting this great medical institution. Not only has St. Jude become one of the leading children's cancer centers in the world, no family ever pays for treatment.
Continuing to train for this run is a yearlong commitment but these beautiful children are worth every minute of the training. It is hard to believe that prior to my own diagnosis in 2000 that I wasn't very active at all and after completing treatment I was 243 pounds and had difficulty doing much of anything physically. We together have come a long way, having raised over $90,000 since finishing my own treatment
Please donate and help me reach my goal!
