Welcome to Neena's Fundraising Page
For many summers when I was younger I was a camp counselor in Saskatchewan, Canada at the Summer School for the Arts in the Qu’Appelle Valley. A special time that holds many memories. One of the daily activities that I did in my free time was running in the rolling hills. Eventually with a running partner for support and encouragement, about once a week we would run around the 24 miles perimeter of Echo Lake where the school was situated. From 4 years old on I had emersed myself in dance and was looking to fill the absence of intense physical activity. Running provided this and the discipline, never mind the endorphins! Running easily became a part of my life over the past few years while my son played soccer and I ran around the field. Last year I was thrilled to have the challenge to run the TCS New York City Marathon and to raise funds in support of pediatric cancer research and to help Tackle Kids Cancer. Again this year I am running. All money raised will benefit the Children’s Cancer Institute at Hackensack Meridian Health and will help their littlest patients become kids again!
It was always been on my bucket list to run the marathon and to take me back to the time when I ran long distances. I am so blessed to have a beautiful healthy boy and I hope to reach my goal to help children in need of a cure. It would mean a lot to me by donating my page and to cheer us on in November when we run the race of a lifetime!
I care about finding a cure for pediatric cancer, and we hope you do, too! The Children’s Cancer Institute at Hackensack Meridian Health has stood as a beacon of hope for children and families dealing with pediatric cancer…but more can be done. Pediatric cancer is the #1 cause of death by disease among children in the US and only 4% of cancer research dollars are allocated to pediatric cancer. These facts are devastating, but the doctors at the Children’s Cancer Institute are working tirelessly to find a cure. Please support us and help end childhood cancer!
Raising money to find a cure is a marathon – not a sprint! We have a long way to go, and every dollar helps! Even $20 would make a big difference for the pediatric cancer patients at the Children's Cancer Institute.
Thank you for supporting my run! Together we can make a bigger impact in this fight against pediatric cancer.
Remember…together WE CAN Tackle Kids Cancer!
