Dear Family and Friends,
On Sunday, August 21, Kate, Maya, Grace and I (“Team Clemente”) will follow in the footsteps of the New York Yankees as part of the eighth annual Damon Runyon 5K at Yankee Stadium – a unique fundraising run that uses the Stadium as its course. We'll get to explore the concourses and ramps, climb stairs between levels, and take our own victory laps around the warning track that circles the field. More importantly, we will help raise money for a tremendous cause, eradicating cancer.
100% of the money we raise will be used by the Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation to fund innovative research by today's most brilliant young scientists, who are racing to find the causes and cures for all types of cancer.
As Yankee fans, it will be an awesome experience to navigate the stadium, but it will be a greater privilege to help rid the world of cancer. In the spirit of President Obama's Cancer Moonshot Initiative, we have set a lofty team goal to raise $3,500. This is a big amount, but to beat cancer we need to dream BIG.
Please help us meet this ambitious goal by making a donation to support our run. We appreciate any support you can provide.
Thank you for your support.
- Team Clemente (Ray, Kate, and Maya)
