I created a Team Smitty for the 5K run/walk. Last year, John, Nathaniel, I did the 5K walk
We were also joined by the O’Rourkes
So… if you’re interested in running or walking we’d love to have you on Team Smitty. If you’d like to donate… every dollar helps…
Here’s the registration page – http://www.firstgiving.com/teamsmitty
More info on the race can be found here- http://www.miles4melanomade.org/
The funds raised from the Miles for Melanoma of DE go directly to the Melanoma Research Foundation. The Melanoma Research Foundation has 3 goals- to research, to educate, & to advocate. Their research description explains why I support their cause, “To support medical research for finding effective treatments and eventually a cure for melanoma.” What I wouldn’t have given for a cure… sigh… I can tell you that I used their bulletin board to gain more information about melanoma and treatment options available. I can also say that Anna Marie Farrow, co-founder for Miles of Melanoma has been such a wonderful support to me during and after John’s illness.
