There are several reasons I'm writing this series of blogs, but perhaps one of the most important is to bring attention to a cause that is very important to me.
So, before I get started on telling my story I wanted to make sure you have all the information about the Run of Hope.
The Run of Hope is an annual fundraiser for the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation which supports the groundbreaking research being done at the Olson lab at the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance.
This year it is my goal for my team, Sammy's Blogslayers, to raise $5000 to celebrate me being cancer free for five years.
