For the 3rd year in a row I am happy to run for a cause I believe in. I am trying to 'pay it forward' and make an impact by raising funds for an organization that helps local people dealing with cancer in honor of my mother, Gwendolyn Pierce.
All proceeds support Cancer Connection and they offer their services free of charge to make a difference in people's lives.
During these unprecedented times, please help me support this cause. I know many of you already supported me last year and the year before so please do not feel obligated to do so again. No donation is too small- even $10-20 will make a difference.
WMass Mother's Day Half Marathon
The WMass Mother's Day Half Marathon has been supporting Cancer Connection for 11 years! Now that 2020 & 2021 have been brutal to charities, they need our help more than ever. This race is one of extremely FEW that operate on donation. Race expenses are kept to a minimum, yet we try to make the runners' experience top-notch. This race has a vibe of gratitude, appreciation and so much love. Not only are runners happy to run, volunteers are happy to help and cancer-warriors are happy to benefit from the free services provided by Cancer Connection.
It is truly The BEST half in Western Mass! This race makes an impact!
Cancer Connection provides a haven where people with cancer and their loved ones can learn how to navigate the difficulties of cancer through FREE one-to-one guidance, education, peer support, integrative therapies and exercise and creative programs.
