Damon Runyon 5k 2017 - We are United Against Cancer!
On Saturday 15th July, United Against Cancer will participate in the 9th annual Damon Runyon 5k at Yankee Stadium. 100% of the money I raise will be used by the Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation to fund innovative research to find the causes and cures for all types of cancer.
As you know, my motivation for supporting the cancer charities was the passing of my Mum from breast cancer and then the passing of my Dad from lung cancer. Most of my Mum's side of the family have been impacted by cancer and it has taken too many lives and the disease has caused too much pain and suffering.
This year we will dedicate our efforts to my wife, Nikkii Stears, who was diagnosed with AML late last year. Those of you that know Nicks will know that she is a fighter and we hope that after a 6th round of chemotherapy and then a bone marrow transplant that she will have kicked AML's butt!
Please give me and our team, United Against Cancer, your consideration and we thank you in anticipation of your support. Whether you choose to join the team or make a donation we appreciate your efforts. Thank you - Steve
