Fundraising Honor Roll

Three and a half years ago, my family was lucky enough to meet an extraordinary woman.  She started as Natalie's kindergarten teacher - but quickly grew into a friend, mentor and inspiration.  Not only was she Natalie's kindergarten teacher, but the following year she was Gabe's first grade teacher.  And it didn't stop there - Madeline invited Oliver and Annie into her classroom every time we were nearby.  She encouraged, comforted and cared for my entire family.  So many times, I reached out for advice and Madeline was always there with perfect words and endless support.  Every day I miss her.  But every day I am grateful for her impact on our lives.  
On May 9th and 10th, I will run in Madeline's honor.  It is indeed an honor to have had her as my friend.  This race - a bit different from what I have done in the past - is a 12 person, 200 mile relay to the tip of Cape Cod.  I will run three legs of the race, for a total of 17 miles.  Some of those miles may be in the middle of the night.  Some will be over difficult terrain.  Some will surely be after little to no sleep.  But as I train for this event, Madeline is never far from my mind.  What she bravely battled is nothing compared to this race.  Her strength is my inspiration.  And for that, I hope that my race can benefit others battling this disease.  
When you support me with a donation, you are joining a global movement to end colorectal cancer forever!
The Colon Cancer Challenge Foundation (CCCF) has been working since 2003 to fund screening progams for the uninsured, and provide much needed funds to young investigators who are committed to finding a cure for colorectal cancer. 
This year their goal is to raise $1,000,00.  That money will allow CCCF to greatly enhance and expand it's awareness programs focused on encouraging the public to Get the Facts, Talk to their Family and Doctor about their medical history and risk factors, and Get Screened!  All in an effort to spread the word that colorectal cancer is preventable, treatable and beatable with prevention and screening.
You can make a tax-deductible donation online by clicking on the Donate button above my fundraising thermometer. Your support helps us get another step closer to a world without colorectal cancer.
Thank you for your support and for thinking of Madeline and her family.
