Dear Family and Friends,
Last summer, I was approached to take part in the B&O Yorkville Run; not only did this launch me into my fitness journey but also allowed me to give back to the community. Thanks to all of your support, it was a tremendous success as I was the number one fundraiser! Being able to give back was so rewarding that I have decided to run once again.
This year, I have decided to run in support of The Pancreatic Cancer Foundation and help change the outcome of pancreatic cancer. This awful cancer has touched my family tragically with the passing of my dear mother. The statistics are staggering – 93% of people diagnosed will die within 5 years, 50% of those within 4 months. It’s on track to be the second deadliest cancer by 2030. Despite these facts, pancreatic cancer receives only 2% of all cancer funding. In response to these statistics the time is now to help support research.
I hope that you will help me reach my fundraising goal. Every pledge takes us one step closer to beating this deadly disease.
Individual Goal: $25,000.00
Individual Raised so far: $18,975.00
