Less Cancer, More Birthdays. A call for donations.

There are many amazing charities worthy of your support — the American Cancer Society is one of them. I am raising money for the ACS again this year because I believe in their mission and I think they do a great job.
Cancer research is saving lives and making lives better every single day. My Chicago Marathon race will help save lives and I’m hoping you’ll support me in my efforts.More than 11 million Americans who have a history of cancer will celebrate another birthday this year. My uncle Ivan Sag died of cancer last year. Ivan was a powerful intellect, a leader in his academic field, a music lover and a party animal. We miss him.Please support me with a donation so that together, with the ACS, we can help save lives and create a world with less cancer and more birthdays.

Last year I ran the Chicago Marathon in 3:44:48 and raised over $2,000 — please help me run even faster and do even more to support this great cause this year.

Every donation of $13.1 (50 cents per mile) or more entitles you to nominate one song* for my Marathon playlist. Try to think of something awesome, that I might not have considered. I will be listening and think of you during the race and during my many many miles of training runs.

You can donate by following this DONATIONS link.

Thanks for your support!

* Songs longer than 7 minutes and 30 seconds, songs featuring Katie Perry, country music, opera or that are otherwise unbearable will be included solely at the runner’s discretion.
