I Run for Those Who Cannot...
I’ve been chosen by the Love Run and Legacy of Hope to be an officially sponsored athlete of the 2021 Philadelphia Love Run Half Marathon!
The goal is simple: ensure families in Philadelphia with a loved one fighting cancer never go hungry again.
On March 28th, 2021 I am running the Philadelphia Love Half Marathon in memory of our dad, Peter C. McVeigh, and will be dedicating every mile to ensuring no cancer patients in Philadelphia, or their families, go hungry. 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!
Legacy of Hope, like most other organizations, has been impacted by the current events, economic downturn, and event cancellations, yet Legacy of Hope refuses to scale back its emergency patient support operations because a resulting loss of life will never be an option.
Over the next few months we will train, have fun doing what we love, bring our city together, and make some incredible memories along the way. In doing so we’ve been given an awesome opportunity to ensure no family in Philadelphia goes hungry because a loved one is fighting cancer, creating a legacy which will outlive all of us. Our goal for the Love Run 2021 (Philly Runs Free campaign) is $130,481.22. This will ensure that, for the next six months, no family living in Philadelphia goes hungry because a loved one has cancer. No elderly parent, or spouse, or child, no cancer patient will have to wonder where their next meal will come from.
