In June 2006 I began fundraising for Pancreatic Cancer research a few weeks after my mom was diagnosed with this aggressive disease.
I decided to do this by running half marathons to raise awareness and money for this disease. Since then I have raised over $21, 000 and have run the Maine Half Marathon in October 2006 and the Miami Half Marathon in January 2007.
I am currently searching for my next challenge and continue to fundraise and speak out for those living with this disease and their families and friends.
My mom passed away 9 months after her diagnosis in March 2007. I run in her honor and with her beside me in spirit.
