I'm Making My Miles More Meaningful

THIS IS THE JOINT FUNDRAISING PAGE FOR MAGGIE BARROW AND JACKIE BENJES

From Jackie: 

The American Cancer Society is particularly meaningful to me and my family because this summer marks just over a year since I was diagnosed with and treated for thyroid cancer. Throughout the treatment process, there were times when I couldn’t exercise for physical reasons, so soon after, I realized how much of a privilege it was to be able to exercise and fell in love with running. It became a constant in my life that stuck with me as I navigated the months following the end of my treatment and the anxieties that came with that. 

Throughout the entire process, I was so incredibly lucky to be supported by absolutely amazing doctors, family, and friends. I cannot think of a better way of celebrating one year cancer free than running the Falmouth Road Race with one of my best friends! There are too many people who have been touched by cancer, so I run this race with those in mind who have fought cancer in any form. I run this race with deep gratitude for everyone who supported me through my experience. And, I run this race with optimism for future cures and a deep belief in the American Cancer Society’s mission.


From Maggie: 

Watching Jackie endure this process gave me a glimpse of the hardship that too many people have to go through when battling cancer. For Jackie, running was an outlet for her to manage the uncertainty and pain. It was so special to see her push through the hard months even when there wasn’t necessarily an end in sight. I want to raise money for The American Cancer Society to honor people who have fought the fight and those who continue to fight the fight as well as contribute money in order to prevent more people from having to face cancer.  

Description

Why I Support the American Cancer Society

Cancer has affected so many people I know and love that it’s inspired me to join this American Cancer Society event. Taking part in this event gives me the chance to make a difference and honor those touched by cancer by raising funds for groundbreaking research and services for people dealing with cancer. I’m also participating to inspire hope for those facing the disease and raising money for the American Cancer Society's event to help save lives from cancer.  I hope you’ll consider signing up too.

Funds raised support cancer patient programs and groundbreaking research that can help save lives. This event also celebrates over 15.5 million cancer survivors nationwide. 15.5 MILLION. That’s huge. That’s why I’d love your support. Will you join me? And if you can’t would you be so kind as to make a donation?
