Running For a Cure

Griffin Willis

Hello and thank you for visiting my page.

On November 11, 2011 my grandfather, a Vietnam War veteran, passed away peacefully on Veterans Day. He was diagnosed with stage 4 metastatic lung cancer.

He was my grandfather, my fishing partner, my best friend. Lung cancer took him away from me, but his memory lives on.

On March 10, 2018 I will be running my first marathon in the nation's capital, Washington, D.C. for the Bonnie J. Addario Lung Cancer Foundation. Every mile, every hour, every step I take training for that day will not be for me, but for my grandfather and for all others who have been in some way affected by this disease.

I am raising funds for the fight against lung cancer so that hopefully one day we can live in a world where we don't have to fear cancer - it fears us.

This cause is very dear to me and I would appreciate any support given! Together we can make a difference!

- Griffin
