Thanks for checking this out! Here's my deal:

Yes, I AM the Race Director of this race. I am also a Cancer Survivor as well as a Runner...not in that order though. I was training for a Half Ironman when I was in my early 40s and wanted a race to use as a training run closer to home. Mapped out this course, picked a local cause (my dad passed from cancer - I picked Cancer Connection for it's numerous community kudos), rounded up a bunch of friends to help make it happen and 3 weeks before the inaugural race, was diagnosed with breast cancer myself. Talk about a smack in the face! This brought this race that much closer to my heart. It's not about me, it's about the impact on the community. Everyone knows someone who has dealt with or been affected by cancer, sad...but it's true. This is a perfect way to honor them!

I love to run for a cause I believe in and am trying to 'pay it forward' and make an impact by raising funds for an organization that helps local people dealing with cancer. All proceeds support Cancer Connection and they offer their services free of charge to make a difference in people's lives.

I am going to run various races (New Jersey Marathon on 11/26/20 - virtual, of course) from now through Mother's Day - trying to raise funds for this race through all of my other distances - I'm asking for help to reach my goal of $10,000. This is my PERSONAL goal (nothing to do with RD goals).

During these unprecedented times, please help me support this cause. Covid-19 (the 'other' C-word of 2020) has really hurt the funding of Cancer Connection...Please help me, help them.

No donation is too small! Seriously, $5 makes an impact!

Please feel free to donate in honor of someone you know fighting the fight or who has lost the fight. I would be honored to run for them.

We CAN MAKE a difference.

Stay healthy and keep on moving forward <3

Sue
