As many of you know this is my first year in Vermont and my first year in medical school. This year I am also running MY FIRST MARATHON!!
I am running the KeyBank Vermont City Marathon with the UVM College of Medicine’s Marathon Team to support the Steps to Wellness project, a supportive exercise rehabilitation program for cancer survivors. So much energy is focused on treating the disease and so much less about getting survivors back to their original physical and mental health state. Steps to Wellness helps cancer survivors to meet these needs by offering physical therapy evaluations, individual exercise prescriptions, educational workshops and exercise supervision by trained medical staff. We all know someone who has been affected by cancer, and to be raising money for such an amazing cause definitely has a lot of personal meaning to me.
My goal is to raise $300.00 to help Steps to Wellness. Donating through this website is simple, fast and secure. It is also the most efficient way to support my fundraising efforts.
Thanks you so much for your support -- and don't forget to forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate too!
