I am being bold by asking you all to donate. I haven't done it in the last couple of years because I get too choked up to talk about it. I have accepted the Massey Challenge because I know now first hand the importance of having cancer research dollars.
My mom, who is as strong as an ox has been getting treatment for 3 1/2 years for Ovarian Cancer and defeated the odds but sometimes conventional treatment is not enough or has run its course. Having the funds for clinical trials gives your love one the opportunity to receive treatment when they have exhausted all options. Its gives someone the opportunity to receive treatment when they may not be able to afford it. It also supports the researchers and clinicians behind the scenes that are making treatment potentially available to the masses.
VCU Massey Cancer Center is working to save lives and find cures right here in Virginia, and, to support their life-saving cancer research, I have accepted the Massey Challenge to fundraise and to make my miles matter.
By fundraising for Massey, my 10k will have special meaning and honor those I love who are battling – or have battled cancer.
Will you make a donation towards my fundraising goal or join my team? Let's kick some a** this year!
My most amazing friend who is on this team helping to raise money for cancer research! She had her entire CrossFit Community involved!
