There’s no doubt that we are in the midst of economic hardships, and in this time, people may be hesitant to fundraise and ask others for money. But the thing is…cancer does not care about the economy. Cancer doesn’t discriminate against age, race, sex, religion, or financial status. In fact, almost 1.5 million NEW cases of cancer were diagnosed last year alone. I have no doubt that each and everyone of you reading this has been touched by cancer in some way. Whether directly, through a family member or friend, a co-worker, or a friend of a friend of a friend, we ALL know how devastating a disease it can be Now more than ever it’s important that we continue to further the fight against cancer.
Hey everyone, I’m at it again! I was looking for a fall marathon and came across the perfect combination…this October, I will be running the Baltimore Marathon (26.2 miles) as a part of TEAM FIGHT, in support of the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults. The UCF provides support programs, education and resources, free of charge, to young adults, their families and friends, who are affected by cancer.
Also, very close to my heart, the Ulman Fund is the primary support through funding behind Cancer to 5k. Created by my beautiful sister Holly Gannoe, cancer to 5k is a training program designed to introduce and/or reintroduce cancer survivors to physical activity by providing them with the training program, coaches, encouragement and support necessary to complete a 5K. Again, this is provided FREE OF CHARGE to all participants! To continue providing these awesome programs, The Ulman Fund needs your support.
My Goal is to raise $1,000 for UCF and make my first attempt at qualifying for the Boston Marathon (finishing in under 3 hours and 40 minutes). It will take a lot of hard training, but every single step will be worth it in order to help the UCF and it’s endeavors. So please consider making a donation. Every little bit counts, even if you just give up one star bucks coffee and send that money Ulman’s way instead. THANK YOU for all of your continued support!
Much Love, HEATHER
