I just signed up to run the Maryland Half Marathon and I invite you to do the same!
The Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults has a long history of partnering with many amazing organizations in the community that help us raise money to support our mission. One of our most recent partnerships I’m really excited about is being a beneficiary for the Maryland Half Marathon. Before I go into why this partnership is a special one – let me just throw out the disclaimer that ALL of our partnerships are equally important to helping us fulfill our mission and we thank all of our partners for their support! Now let me take a minute to give some love to one of our newest partners…
The Maryland Half Marathon Partnership is special because the funds raised from this event will go directly to support the amazing patient care taking place at the University of Maryland Greenebaum Cancer Center, and specifically a percentage of your race registration and fundraising efforts will go to support the work UCF is doing at the Cancer Center every day to support young adult patients.
On an annual basis, we help change the lives of over 200 patients being treated at the cancer center between the ages of 18 and 39.
A special thanks to the Maryland Half Marathon Co-Chair Michael Greenebaum for making this partnership possible.
To kick off this partnership in style, I decided to go high-tech (actually kinda low-tech with our in-house Flip Video crew) and film a partnership announcement.
We also put together a video explaining the work we’re doing at the cancer center so you can see and hear where YOUR money is going.
So, check them out and please consider joining us for the Maryland Half Marathon on May 15, 2011 in Maple Lawn in Howard County, MD!
