Running for: Hope for Young Adults with Cancer

CapeCodMarathon4I am a heart attack survivor of three years. I took up running a few weeks after I got out of the ICU. It took a year to complete my first 5K, and another year to run my first 1/2. Then I started to train for a full. In October of 2013 I was diagnosed with cancer just a few weeks before the Cape Cod Marathon. I ran it anyway.

The folks at Hope for Young Adults with Cancer are really fantastic people and do lots of things to help cancer patients. Of all the charities I have run for, this is the one I am closet too.

I am still in treatment, but I run The Boston Marathon a few weeks ago, and I will be in San Francisco for TSFM 2014 in July!
