Hello Friends! 

Ever since my Mom Jan lost her battle with cancer, I've been searching for a good way to honor her memory. This year, I think I found a great one. I'm going to be running 26.2 miles for cancer research and finding a cure!  I am training to participate in the Bank of America Chicago Marathon on October 13, 2013, to benefit the American Institute for Cancer Research (AICR).

A bit about AICR:  As many of you know, before cancer, Mom fought weight and diet issues much of her life.  I have as well, and I'm sure we all know people who do.  AICR funded research has shown that 30% to 40% of all cancers are directly linked to the foods we eat, the exercise we get and how well we watch our weight. What this means is that we have the potential through our daily food and lifestyle choices to make a major impact on the cancer risk we each face in our lives.  AICR has been at the forefront of providing education programs and materials to help people learn how to make changes for lower cancer risk.

As part of my participation in this event, I'm required to raise at least $750, to be donated directly to AICR.  Your donation of any amount would be a great help toward my reaching this goal. Thanks for visiting my webpage; please donate online via the Make a Gift link to the left.  If you would rather, you can send donations to me and I will apply toward this total.

TEASER ALERT!  Make sure to visit my Facebook to see my progress!  Mom inspired me to lose 60# thus far. 

Your generosity will play a role in the efforts to find a cure for this dreadful disease.

Thank you so much for your support. I will think of you proudly as I pound the pavement.

 

God Bless and Good Health,

Robert
