Welcome to My CureSearch Challenge Page
Thanks for visiting my CureSearch Challenge page!
Dear Family and Friends,
First and foremost, I hope you and yours are all safe and well in the midst of this pandemic.
My continued prayers for your health and well being of you and your family are constantly being sent.
Next, as many of you know, I am an avid hiker and trail runner. Aside from these two passions, my other passion is helping to fight cancer, especially pediatric cancer. It’s a war we must win, and I have dedicated myself to fight with those brave kids who are battling this awful disease. In fact, 1 in 45 children are diagnosed with cancer each day and it is now the leading cause of death for children...this is not acceptable! In addition, the treatments tend to wreak havoc on the children...with 1 in 3 children developing a second form of cancer or other major musculoskeletal problem...again, this is unacceptable!
Thus, on Friday March 12 at 7pm through 7am on Sunday March 14, I will be running in the Conquer the Wall Endurance Challenge Race in Williamson, WV—in Hatfield and McCoy country. I will attempt to run for 35hrs to help raise money for those doctors on the front line leading the war on children's cancer. The course is a 2 mile loop around a large stone wall. My goal is 100+ miles (or 50+ laps) with each mile of each lap dedicated to a child who continues to fight this disease and also for those brave children who have lost their battle....because, their lives and their fight should inspire us all. Thus, I will run in honor of the children and families who have been impacted by childhood cancer, those doctors leading the charge for less invasive treatments, and to bring awareness to this disease. I will be conquering this wall in order for you all to help me send a message to cancer...that being, we will destroy you!
All donations and pledges will benefit CureSearch for Children's Cancer, a nonprofit which aims to end childhood cancer by finding more effective, less toxic treatments for children battling various forms of this disease. This charity is near and dear to my heart, and they are fully behind my insanity to run 35hrs In the coming days, I will be posting some more information regarding the event and how you can donate to my run. I will also be sharing some photos and statistics about this disease.
I now have my own donation link where you can donate directly. Here is my specific CureSearch Challenge donation page:
I am asking you to give what you can, whether it be a one time donation or a pledge per lap, or mile, all are greatly appreciated! Both individual and corporate donations and sponsorships are greatly appreciated! Please donate hesitate to message me directly.
Lastly, I will be issuing you all a challenge beyond monetary donations during that 35hr period while I am running. I will be asking you all to run, hike, bike or walk at least 1 mile...that’s it...1 mile anytime during that 35hr period while I am running. After you do, I want you to post a selfie to this Facebook page, with a message telling me you have joined me fighting this battle against pediatric cancer. My challenge to you is the “1 mile for a Child.” After each lap, my nephew and sister who will be my crew for the race, will show me our Facebook page to see who is fighting with me...your messages and these brave kids will be my fuel to keep running. More information regarding this challenge will be posted in the coming days, so stay tuned.
I thank you all in advance, and I will be in touch very soon. Please help me spread the word about my race with your family, friends, co-workers, church family, and anyone who will listen. My success in Conquering the Wall will be because of you all. My goal is to raise 10k for this worthy cause, and I have faith that you all can help me do it!
Because, no one fights alone.
Sincerely and passionately,
