My daughter, Juliana, has begun training to run all 13.1 miles of the 2013 NYC Half Marathon on March 17, 2013. She asked me to help spread the word in hopes of gaining your support of her fundraising efforts for families dealing with cancer. Her goal is to raise $2,000 or more by March 7th.
The charity she has joined, Team Continuum, helps ease the everyday financial burdens (food, rent, utilities, etc), so that cancer patients and their families can keep their focus on medical care and recovery. She was drawn to this charity as they help address the immediate financial and psychological needs of patients, while other organizations are working hard towards finding a cure.
Juliana received an exception entry from NYRR to run in the race this year, as they generally do not accept 16-year olds. Listed below is a link to her online fundraising page if you would like to made a tax-deductible donation:
Thanks for any thoughts, encouragement or motivation the community might have for Juliana on her webpage. She truly appreciates it!
