A few weeks ago, I picked up cards to send to donors with the words: “I Thank You For Your Awesomeness.” This card captures how I feel about the friends, family members, and people I’ve never met who’ve supported while training for the Big Sur Marathon and raising money for the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation.
The road to Big Sur hasn’t been easy. Like the race course, it’s been full of monster hills. But, your support and the cause itself make it more than worth it.
I’ve raised more than $4,000 for the MMRF, thanks to YOU! How cool is that! More than 90 percent of your dollars will fund research for better treatment for multiple myeloma patients. My hope is that one day we can put the MMRF out of business because a cure will have been found. My dad’s life was cut short by this disease. I’m playing my small part so future myeloma patients have a better outcome. That’s why I’m running Big Sur for the MMRF and will continue to run on behalf of this organization.
With the race on Sunday, I want to share my gratitude face to face for supporting a cause close to my heart. I thank you for your awesomeness.
If you would still like to help support me as I continue fighting against the disease that took my dad and has claimed thousands of other lives, please consider donating here. Every dollar counts in the fight against multiple myeloma.
*A shoutout to friend and runner Katherine Magy who showed great patience and humor while recording each unrehearsed take.
