Fundraising Honor Roll

 Thank you for visiting my personal page!

 

I created this page in memory of my dad, Jose Diaz, as we approach the 10 year anniversary of his passing from colon cancer. Working with the Colon Cancer Challenge Foundation this year was such an incredible experience and helped me find a different way to celebrate his life and story with others.

To celebrate his life, and to commemorate the 10 year anniversary of his passing on September 28, 2012, I am challenging myself to do more. Over the course of the year (beginning in October 2012) I will be running 10 half marathons throughout the United States. My first half will take place in Lewiston, Idaho in the beginning of October, and I will finish in September 2013 in my hometown of Bellingham, Washington with the Bellingham Bay half marathon. My goal is to complete 10 half marathons and raise some money along the way for colon cancer research, awareness and screenings so that other families have a greater chance at winning the battle against colon cancer.

I will continue to update you all as I head out on this journey with pictures, training updates and race information. Please check my 10 For 10 blog at: http://ten-4-ten.tumblr.com/ so you can see my progress and participate (from near or far) in the journey. You can also follow me on twitter at: https://twitter.com/#!/Ten_4_Ten.

 

Thank you for your love, prayers and support along the way. I am so appreciative for the 21 years that I was lucky enough to have my dad with me and look forward to celebrating his life, community and family throughout this year.

Sincerely,

Gina
