Hi Everyone!

This year I have decided to run the Brooklyn Half Marathon on behalf of the Bonnie Addario Lung Cancer foundation.

Earlier last year, my aunt Patty was diagnosed with Stage IV lung cancer. She has handled it with the utmost strength, grace, and most of all, positivity. She has served as a true inspiration to me and my family. I have decided to run on behalf of this cause in her honor.

Please consider donating and help bring us closer to a world without lung cancer. Any donation would be greatly appreciated!

More about the Bonnie Addario Foundation:

Lung cancer is the world’s top cancer killer, claiming more than 1.3 million lives per year, and it’s not just a smokers’ disease. More than half of new cases in the U.S. are former and never-smokers.

The Bonnie J. Addario Lung Cancer Foundation (ALCF) is one of the largest philanthropies (patient-founded, patient-focused, and patient-driven) devoted exclusively to eradicating Lung Cancer through research, early detection, education, and treatment. The Foundation’s goal is 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 by 2023. The ALCF was established on March 1, 2006 as a 501c(3) non-profit organization and has raised over $30 million for lung cancer research and related programs.
