Running for Cancer Research

On October 9, 2022, I’m running the Chicago Marathon in support of the Cancer Research Foundation.  This will be my first marathon, and I am excited to be running to raise awareness of cancer research as I train and hit the road for 26.2 miles.

Cancer research has saved millions of lives, and will save millions more, and our hope is that someday research will rid us of this deadly disease for good.  Personally, I started my journey running at the same time I started my role as CEO at CRF.  Part of the reason I started running was because of Covid, but I also started because of my work at CRF.  Research has shown that exercise and a healthy diet will help prevent cancer.  This we know, and this we all can do.

Please consider supporting the Cancer Research Foundation and me, to the finish line.  I’m excited to share that an anonymous donor is willing to match up to $5,000 of contributions to my marathon run.  So, your donation will be doubled!

P.S. Yes, I am a Cubs fan, but will take donations from Sox fans, and even Cardinal fans too.

Thank you very much for your support!!
