Running has helped me find peace after losing 2 parents to cancer in the last 2 years. As such, I would like to use my soles to help others. This year I aim to raise $2500 through my participation in the Akron Marathon on Sept. 24, 2016 and donate, on behalf of my parents, to The Gathering Place (TGP).
TGP is a Cleveland based cancer support organization that assists individuals facing cancer and their families. 100% of the proceeds raised stay local and be distributed to their programs including counseling, yoga, exercise, nutrition, massages, art therapy, a wig salon and others.
Share your story with me. Cancer’s impact doesn’t end with the diagnosis. It stretches much further and it is important to know you are not alone. There are others who understand and can support you at whatever part of the journey you are in. Your supports for this cause will help other Cleveland families who have felt cancers sting. Please consider donating and help others to be Saved by the Sole.
