Running For a Cause

If you love to run and/or work towards a better future, check out my friend Sam Day.  See the story below:

Hello friends!

As many of you know, my father lost his battle with Leukemia 10 years ago this June (June 30, 2003 to be exact). Since 2007, I have been running marathons to raise money in his memory and to help advance the Leukemia & Lymphma Society's cause. To date, I have raised over $20,000.00 toward research and finding a cure.
This time I wanted to do something really special, so I decided to run 5 marathons in one year, finishing up with the New York City Marathon in November. I'm setting my goal high and trying to raise $10,000.00 -- $1000 for every year that we've gone without having Dad's big smile in our lives. I'm asking you, my friends, to help me reach this goal. Whether you can give $5 or $500, every contribution helps in a major way. I'm also asking anyone who may work for a company that gives to charity to please consider or inquire about a corporate donation, as reaching $10,000 is going to take a lot of work and help.

The easiest way to donate is at this website: Just click the Donate Now button on the right side of the page, enter some info, and you're all set.

Thank you so much to everyone who has visited this page, and thank you for considering a donation to help remember my father and to advance the cause: finding a cure.
