Read more about Carolyn, her challenge and her journey to raise $10,000 for finding new cures and treatments for blood cancers . Her letter is below.
This year I’m fundraising for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society through Team In Training. I am running in honor of my niece, Moira Hogan, who was diagnosed in Spring 2011 with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) and who successful finished her treatment cycle in August 2013. Below is a picture of Moira taken last week in front of her betta fish, Glub, which she received for her 7th birthday.
Moira was 3 years old when she was diagnosed and by running in her honor, I am also recognizing the fortitude and tenacity her parents, Jennifer & Tom Hogan, demonstrated throughout the grueling three year treatment cycle. The treatment of childhood leukemia has come a long way and with your support we can raise much needed funds for research that will refine the treatment cycle and one day lead to a cure for this terrible disease. I am asking for corporate and individual donations to honor my niece’s battle and raise much needed research funds. Please consider donating $100 to sponsor me for a mile to help me reach my fundraising goal.
The easiest way to donate is to go to my race website: http://pages.teamintraining.org/nca/corps14/Carolyn and make a donation by credit card. It is quick and secure plus you can learn more about my progress. You will receive a confirmation of your donation by email. All donations are tax deductible.
Thank you for your support.
