Team Running for Cover is running the 2013 Boston Marathon to raise funds to support MFNE's mission of education, prevention and support.

Dear Family and Friends,

Thank you for visiting my Personal Fundraising Page

On April 15, 2013 I will be running the Boston Marathon to benefit the Melanoma Foundation of New England (MFNE). MFNE is a non-profit organization that (1) educates the public on the importance of early detection and prevention of melanoma, the most deadly form of skin cancer, and (2) provides support groups and advocacy for melanoma patients.

Unfortunately, cancer touches all of us. I am doing my part to raise awareness of melanoma (and hopefully prevent it) by running the 2013 Boston Marathon. Please support me in this effort by making a donation to my run. Every dollar raised will help to prevent this horrible disease from striking another family. I am running my second Boston Marathon in memory of a family friend Bill Walls. Bill fought an incredibly brave battle with melanoma seven years ago. I am also running in support of my brother Chris Burkart who was diaganosed with melanoma almost two years ago and just recently completed treatment. I can't think of a better way to honor their spirit, strength and will while supporting such a great organization.

I would be grateful if you would consider supporting me in my goal of raising $5,000 for MFNE. Thank you in advance for your generosity and support. Not only will it help me persevere along the marathon route, but it will also help increase local melanoma awareness and prevention strategies.

Hopefully I will catch some of you in Boston on April 15th!

Scott Burkart
