Welcome to My Personal Page
Dear Friends and Family -
As most of you know in 2007 I lost my Mom, Karen to a very rare and aggressive brain tumor. We established Karen’s Legacy that year to fulfill her wishes in continuing to find a cure for brain tumors. Since then our team has raised over $158,000 towards research. Our team has placed in the top 3 ever year for the most raised, and we also received the Karen Herman memorial grant to Duke Univeristy for $100,000 2 years ago. Karen’s Legacy would greatly appreciate any support to help us continue our efforts to finding a cure for brain tumors.
You can participate by running the race along with me, by donating toward my personal fundraising efforts, or by helping me spread the word about this fundraising event. If you're not a runner, don't worry, many of the registrants are not runners. Instead many of the registrants are brain tumor patients who are just happy to be alive and happy to be able to participate in this event.
Just so you know, the Southeastern Brain Tumor Foundation is recognized as as a 501 (c) (3) not-for-profit organization and as a public charity. Donations to the SBTF in support of my fundraising efforts are tax deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law.
Remember your participation will have a positive impact on the life of a brain tumor patient because it will help to fund much needed brain tumor research. Sadly, many of us don't realize how scarry a brain tumor diagnosis is until someone we know is told "you have a brain tumor" or "you have brain cancer".
Thanks so much for taking the time to read my request for support. I appreciate it.
Oh, and one more thing, did you know you can double your donation through employer matching programs? Be sure to check with your Human Resources Department to determine if your company will match your donation. If they say yes, you can double your donation with just a few clicks of your mouse.
