Dear friends and colleagues,
As you know, I always want to put my running to work for a good cause. This past year, I have had the opportunity to engage with teens whose lives have been disrupted by cancer - as cancer victims themselves, or as a member of a family that is dealing with cancer. The stories that these teens shared inspired me to joinTeam Fight. Team Fight uses endurance events as a platform to raise awareness and support families in the young adult cancer fight.
We have all been affected by cancer in our lives -- in one way or another. I ask that you join me in supporting this cause. I am dedicating my 2014 NYC Marathon run to Team Fight. I hope you can help make a young adult's life better by making a donation -- no matter how small -- to Team Fight. https://www.z2systems.com/np/clients/ulman/campaign.jsp?campaign=478&fundraiser=766842&team=377.
The Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults changes lives by creating a community of support for young adults, and their loved ones, as they fight cancer and embrace survivorship.
With your support, The Ulman Cancer Fund is able to provide multiple support services and resources for the young adult cancer community, including:
Cancer to 5K - A free, progressive, 12-week run/walk program designed to reintroduce cancer survivors to physical activity.
Helping Others Fight - A volunteer program that provides basic services – such as transportation to and from treatment, yard work, home repairs, delivery of chemo care bags – to local cancer patients and their families so they can focus their energy on their battle with cancer and their well-being.
Patient Navigation - A free program - onsite at cancer centers and remote - that ensures no young adult ever faces cancer alone. We provide one-on-one personal support and resources to young adults and their families to help them manage the cancer experience and long-term cancer survival.
Scholarships - A financial assistance program to help young adults continue their education after being affected by cancer through their own diagnosis or the diagnosis of a loved one.
Thank you for making these programs and our mission possible.
