Hello and welcome to my Debbie's Dream Foundation fundraising page!
After many years of watching elites, friends, and fellow Bostonians run the Boston Marathon, I am excited to say that this year I will be running Boston! How could it get any better than this, you ask? Well not only am I running, but I'm also taking this opportunity to raise money for a charity very important to me and my family: Debbie's Dream Foundation.
Debbie's Dream Foundation is a non-profit dedicated to raising awareness about stomach cancer, funding research, and providing support internationally to patients and their families. The statistics associated with stomach cancer are daunting, but non-profits like this one give us education, support, scientific discoveries, and hope to continue pushing forward. Their ultimate goal is to find a cure for stomach cancer. To learn more about them, visit www.debbiesdream.org.
I am dedicating this 2015 Boston Marathon to my sister, Rachael. My sister has been diagnosed with stomach cancer and she is still undergoing treatment. You think running a marathon is hard? Try fighting stomach cancer. No one should have to go through what she has, but she is the strongest woman I know and will persevere. Debbie's Dream Foundation has given her a really great support community, resources, and even teddy bears for her three children (that's them in the photo with my sister).
I am raising funds for Debbie's Dream Foundation to give back and am asking for your help in this endeavor. Please consider making a tax-deductible contribution to my fundraising campaign. It means the world. Thank you!
