The best recreation is to do good. – William Penn
The goal is simple: ensure families in Philadelphia with a loved one fighting cancer never go hungry again.
Over the years, I have become more involved with Legacy of Hope and with every grocery delivery I have made, I have seen first hand how such a simple gesture impacts a family. Legacy of Hope is more than just delivering groceries to families in need - it is about building a sense of community and providing families with a support system. So on March 24th, 2024 I am running the Philadelphia Love Half Marathon, and dedicating every mile to ensuring no cancer patients in Philadelphia, or their families, go hungry or lose their homes.
Each week families across Philadelphia with a loved one fighting cancer go hungry, and without the Emergency Patient Support Network, countless cancer patients in Philadelphia will continue facing hunger. Legacy of Hope created the Emergency Patient Support Network in partnership with Philadelphia hospitals to quickly identify financially disadvantaged Philadelphia cancer patients, and provide emergency support; preventing hunger and homelessness.
I promise to train and race hard, but I need your support. If you are able to, please support me as I train and run in this race. Every dollar helps.
Spread the word: Philadelphia cancer patients and their families do not go hungry!
