To celebrate my 32nd birthday this year, my brother Ethan and I have decided to run the Chicago marathon together ( Oct. 10th on my BIRTHDAY!!!) and we're asking for your support!

We have decided to run for Imerman Angels, which is a really wonderful non-profit, cancer organization where Ethan volunteers. We have committed to raising $1500 and if we reach our goal, Ethan is going to run in his infamous banana costume...and if we hit $2000, there is a small possibility that I'll be running 26.2 as a monkey...This will be our first marathon that we've run together and we promise to keep you all posted with stories, photos and updates throughout the adventure!

Thanks so much for your help! All donations, regardless of size, are greatly appreciated.

A little bit more about why we decided to run for Imerman Angels:


Imerman Angels is truly one of the best cancer organizations around and makes a tremendous difference in the lives of people fighting cancer. The organization carefully matches and individually pairs a person touched by cancer with someone who has fought and survived the same type of cancer (a Mentor Angel). Cancer caregivers (spouses, parents, children and other family and friends of fighters) also receive 1-on-1 connections with other caregivers and survivors. These 1-on-1 relationships inspire hope and offer the chance to ask personal questions and receive support from someone who is uniquely familiar with the experience. The service is absolutely free and helps anyone touched by any type of cancer, at any cancer stage level, at any age, living anywhere in the world.

If you know anyone touched by cancer, please let them know about this great resource! For more information on Imerman Angels you can check out their website at http://www.imermanangels.org/
