Welcome to my fundraising page!
I’ve created this page in honor of my dad who lost his battle with pancreatic cancer and to help advance pancreatic cancer research. As a tribute to him and countless people diagnosed with this disease, starting on March 24th, I'll begin running a total of 52 races (marathons, half marathons, 10Ks and 5Ks) across the country and dedicating every race to someone impacted by pancreatic cancer.
My goal is to raise awareness, encourage others to share their stories and help fund pancreatic cancer research. All funds will benefit the Hirshberg Foundation for Pancreatic Cancer Research, an organization committed to advancing pancreatic cancer research and supporting patients and families. The more people that know about the Hirshberg Foundation, the greater their impact, so please help me spread the word by sharing my page with your friends and family.
You can also help me achieve my goals by giving whatever you can today using the 'Give Now' button.
Thank you in advance for your generosity, it means a lot!
