Southeastern Brain Tumor Foundation 2017 Race for Research
Dear Friends and Family -
This year marks my 20th anniversary of suriving a brain tumor. Some of you I have known since before the diagnosis and surgery, who helped me through the dark time, and some are more recent friends. I wear my brain tumor on my sleeve, so both new and old friends know my story of fear, shock, denial, recovery, and transition.
I have been volunteering with the Southeastern Brain Tumor Foundation since 2006, have been a board member since 2010, and am now serving as its president. Each year the SBTF hosts its annual fundraiser-the Race for Research. This year the event is on Saturday, September 16, 2017 at Central Park in Atlantic Station in midtown Atlanta. It is a 5K run, 1K fun-run/walk and a fundraising event which raises money to support brain tumor research.
Beckett and Talia have walked/run the 5K the past few years.
You can participate by running the race along with me, Greg, Beckett, and Talia, 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.
Thanks so much for taking the time to read my request for support. I appreciate it.
Thanks again, and I hope to see you at the Race for Research!
