Many of us have run races for a good cause, often to fundraise for a larger organization. I have done multiple races for the Komen foundation and I ran a marathon with Team in Training for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. There are reasons to run for these causes that tie into my family history and are close to my heart.
Joe and Dom - Kicking Cancer's Ass 26.2 Miles at a Time
He is running 2 marathons 13 days apart, all in effort to raise money to directly support his friend Dom (and Dom’s) family as he is treated for a serious gastrointestinal cancer. The marathons are Boston and Pittsburgh, but the races aren’t as big as the challenge his friend Dom is facing.
