This will be my 3rd year raising money for this organization. I cannot begin to tell you the excitement and other emotions that are felt during training and the actual running of this event. The Yellow Mile of survivors towards the end reminds why I do this and helps me to power through the horrible hills at the end of this race.
I've ran this race before all the hubub that's gone on with the guy that started this organization.
I ran it last year when it was going on and I had a chance to go to the LIVESTRONG headquarters. I could see the toll it took on the staff there, but they were strong and believe in the organization's mission.
I am sticking to it and I'm going to be with this organization again this year.
As part of Team LIVESTRONG, I'm making a difference in the fight against cancer. I've joined with other people around the globe and across different events to raise money for the LIVESTRONG Foundation.
The Foundation serves people affected by cancer and empowers them to take action against this disease that is now the world's leading cause of death. LIVESTRONG has become a symbol of hope and inspiration to people affected by cancer around the world.
The money I raise will support programs and services for cancer survivors. These resources help people diagnosed with cancer face the challenges of the disease head on and live life on their own terms. Livestrong.org/WeCanHelp
Please support me as I make a difference in the cancer fight through my participation in Team LIVESTRONG.
