Running 26.2 miles in memory of Kenny Noyes!
Running a marathon is kind of a big deal. Running the Boston Marathon is a bigger deal. Running Boston as a charity runner is the biggest deal!
In 2008, I ran the Boston Marathon like a peg-leg pirate. Seriously, it wasn't pretty because of my left calf strain, but I accomplished my goals:
It's been a few years, but I am ready to run another 26.2 miles! This time I am training with purpose . . .
And in memory of Kenny Noyes. As you may or may not know, Ken was diagnosed in the Fall of 2005 with Stage 3 Melanoma and lost his courageous battle with cancer on November 2, 2008. He spent a great deal of time at Dana-Faber over the course of those 3 years surrounded by their amazing doctors and nurses, and his loving family and friends.
Kenny's fighting spirit has inspired me to run Boston, again, as a member of the Melanoma Foundation of New England's Team Running for Cover. Every dollar I raise will support MFNE’s mission of prevention, education, support and advocacy in the fight against melanoma.
I appreciate your support while I train for this race and hope that you will help me spread awareness and educate others in the fight against melanoma by helping me achieve my fundraising goal! Don't forget to ask your employer if they have a matching gift program. It's an easy way to double your gift to a great organization.
Thank you to my supporters:
