In order to gain entry, they have decided to raise money for some very well deserved charities with the hopes of meeting the minimum fundraising requirement. If you are looking to donate to a worthy cause and helping our runners, please read on below!
Currently we have:
- Christian Fundraising for Children For Cancer (UK)

*Fundraising for Children With Cancer (UK)
*Race Christian is running – London Marathon Sunday April 28, 2019
As many of you know, the 2019 London Marathon represents the final World Marathon Major I need to get my Six Star Medal. This journey started in 2016 by running the Boston Marathon for a children’s cancer charity and it’s not a coincidence I wanted to end it by running for the same cause.
But we still have so much more to do. A single child dying from cancer is one too many. With your support, we are helping to create a future in which every child with cancer survives and experiences the life-changing moment when they ring the end of treatment bell.
Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to Children with Cancer UK. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity’s behalf where the donor is eligible for this.
I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations. Please note that Virgin Money Giving will process all major US credit cards. If you have any questions about the transaction, please email or message me so I can help.

*Fundraising for Paws Chicago
*Race Nazan is running – The Chicago Marathon, October 13, 2019
PAWS Chicago is dedicated to building No Kill communities – starting with a No Kill Chicago – where all healthy and treatable pets are saved. Since PAWS Chicago’s founding in 1997, the number of homeless animals euthanized per year in Chicago has dropped more than 80 percent. In 2016, PAWS Chicago found loving homes for more than 5,100 homeless pets. But there is more work to be done and your generosity is crucial to this effort.
Please consider supporting me by making a donation and helping PAWS Chicago provide vital medical care, food and shelter to thousands of homeless pets this year. PAWS receives no government funding and relies solely on people like you to help provide continued care for Chicago’s homeless animals.
Your support will allow us to build a truly humane and compassionate community, one pet at a time. Please consider donating to my cause.
If you are feeling extra generous, please consider sharing my page with your network or check with your employer if they will match your donation to make the most out of your generosity.
Thank you for your support!

*Fundraising for St Jude’s Research Hospitals
*Race Eva is running – Chicago Marathon – October 13
I am a St. Jude Hero! I have chosen to run The Chicago Marathon for a reason bigger than myself by fundraising for the kids and families at St. Jude. I am training to cross the finish line on race day and with your donation we can cross the fundraising finish line together because the money you donate helps find a cure for childhood cancer.
Did you know:
- Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food – because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
- Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20% to more than 80% since it opened more than 50 years ago. St. Jude is working to drive the overall survival rate for childhood cancer to 90%, and they won’t stop until no child dies from cancer.
- St. Jude freely shares the discoveries it makes, and every child saved at St. Jude means doctors and scientists worldwide can use that knowledge to save thousands more children.
Donate today to help me reach my goal. Even when the race is over, the fight to end childhood cancer continues.
