Welcome to my 2018 TCS NYC Marathon Fundraising page!
For those who do not know me, my name is Laura, I am 27 years old and I started running about 2 years ago.
On Sunday, November 4, 2018, I will be running the NYC Marathon while raising money for the Bonnie J. Addario Lung Cancer Foundation (ALCF).
ALCF is a patient-founded, patient-focused, and patient-driven nonprofit with a goal to work with a diverse group of physicians, organizations, industry partners, individuals, patients, survivors, and their families to identify solutions and make timely and meaningful change and turn lung cancer into a chronically managed disease.
It will be my first marathon and I want to run it for this cause which means a lot to me. It is never easy to see someone you love go through this.
I am asking you to help by supporting my fundraising efforts with a donation so that together we can make a difference. We need to continue to fund research to help make this disease more manageable and increase survival.
Lung cancer accounts for 25% of all cancer related deaths putting it as the number one killer cancer. Worldwide it is responsible for nearly 1.5 million deaths a year.
Funds will be used to help those currently fighting as well as those who may be in the future. I greatly appreciate your support and will keep you posted on my progress.
I look forward to running the streets of New York during this amazing marathon on November 4, 2018 in support of all who fight and thrive with lung cancer and specially HIM.
Please join me in the fight to beat lung cancer!
