2014 Philadelphia Rock n Roll Half Marathon

In July, I launched my fundraising campaign where I would run a half marathon and raise $1,500 for the American Cancer Society because I really, really, really hate cancer.

On Sunday, I completed the Rock ‘n’ Roll Philadelphia Half Marathon along with 22,000 fellow runners (that’s me in the front right of the picture – just kidding). I felt really good doing it, not only because the race wasn’t as painful as I thought it would be, but because I was running for my father, uncle, best friend and everyone else who has been negatively impacted by cancer. And I was able to raise $4,605 $4,675 dollars from my awesome family and friends to donate to the ACS!

It feels really good to do my part, as small as it may be, and hopefully this disease will eventually be eradicated. I believe that donations are still being accepted, so if you’d like, you can donate here.

Thanks to everyone who donated to the cause and supported me!

GREAT JOB! I love running but a half marathon is tough. And am glad you and your legs made it. And am super proud of my little brother for raising money in memory of so many that we love that have suffered from this terrible disease…especially our dad!

    Thanks sista! It was tough but great because I was running for a cause and had a time goal in mind (to finish in under 2 hours). I might not do it again, but, ya know, it was fun when I did it!
