Team Running for Cover is running the 2013 Boston Marathon to raise funds to support the mission of education, prevention and support.
I am honoroed to team up with the Melanoma Foundation of New England and the 2013 Boston Marathon to raise awareness and support for this disease. Since it's inception in 2006, Running for Cover has raised over $1 million to support MFNE. I am thirlled to be a part of this team for the 2013 Boston Marathon and am looking for your support along this journey!
Many of you are not aware but my life was suddenly and dramatically changed this summer when a spot on my leg turned out to be melanoma. Hearing the words, "you have cancer" at 43 yeears old is beyond shocking. Luckily, I am a stubborn man and from that moment I knew 2 things...I would not let this be the thing that kills me and I would make it my mission to educate anyone who would listen about how to prevent hearing the words I had to hear. I am a runner...a driven, and passionate distance runner who trains daily and races regularly. I do this for myself, my family and for my health. Combine the passion of running the Boston Marathon along with my strong desire and intent to educate people around cancer prevention, treatment and support leads me to this moment where I am asking for your strong support leading up to April 15th and beyond.
Please help me today by donating to my fundraising efforts. Together we can help reduce the incidents of Melanoma in the US. Thank you so much for your support!
