Welcome to my Maryland Half Marathon Page!
At age 49, in 2006, my Dad died after a battle with cancer. Age 49 is too young to die. I say this with the following fact in mind - I am now 49. So I have now reached my Dad's age when he died and I plan to live another 50+ years. So it is in my Dad's honor that I am participating in the 2023 Maryland Half Marathon to raise money for the fight against cancer. 100% of every dollar I raise goes directly to the University of Maryland Marlene and Stewart Greenebaum Comprehensive Cancer Center (UMGCCC).
Since 2009, participants like me have raised more than $5 million to support UMGCCC’s cutting-edge care and groundbreaking research. And this year, we’re going for a new fundraising best.
As a National Cancer Institute-designated comprehensive cancer center, UMGCCC ranks among the top cancer centers in the country. They combine compassionate care with the most advanced treatment options available. I hope you’ll consider making a donation to fund their amazing work. Your support helps provide lifesaving treatment to UMGCCC patients and funds research that benefits cancer patients everywhere.
Make a contribution today. Together, we can move the fight against cancer forward!
