I have never done this before on my blog, but I am asking for your help.
This spring I will be running in 4 Half Marathons (the NYC Half, the Nike Women's Half in DC, the MORE Magazine Half in NYC and the Brooklyn Half).
Although I do enjoy running to a certain extent, that is not WHY I run. I run because I want to end blood cancers.
When I was growing up, I watched a childhood friend lose his battle with leukemia. I ran the NYC Half with Team in Training (the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society) in 2011 in his memory.
Thanks for the efforts of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, along with Team in Training, childhood Leukemia is no longer a death sentence. But there is so much that still needs to be done in regards to research, treatment, and patient services.
Today I choose to run for those children who are still fighting and I am running in honor of 4 year old Meredith ("Merry").
To help my fundraising efforts, my dear friend Suzi Shelton, kindie rocker extraordinaire, will be having a benefit concert on Wednesday, March 13th at 6:30pm. Tickets are only $10! Please consider stopping by! http://www.stageit.com/suzi_shelton/music_for_merry_online_benefit_concert/19379

I would LOVE to have you join us on March 13th. Show some love. All proceeds with be donated to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
