The goal is simple: ensure families in Philadelphia with a loved one fighting cancer never go hungry again. 

On March 24, 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 as a result of their diagnosis. 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 run in support of Legacy of Hope as this organization has become an integral part of my family. I run in support of Legacy of Hope in honor and memory of my late father, Peter McVeigh, who passed away from Pancreatic Cancer in February 2017. As a Peace Corps member, teacher, and the founder/Director of Germantown Academy’s Community Service Organization, my father dedicated his entire life to serving the underserved and less fortunate in our local and global communities. His life’s motto, “service is the rent we pay for living,” was passed down to me and brothers from an early age, and it is one I have carried with me my entire life. I run in support of Legacy of Hope, as I believe no cancer patient should have to make the choice between paying for their medications, or putting food on the table or keeping a roof over their head. I run in support of this incredible organization, to carry forward and live my father’s legacy.   

I promise to train and race hard, but I need your support. Every donation, no matter the amount, will make a critical difference, at a critical time, in the lives of those who need it most. 

With gratitude,
