Running Yankee Stadium for 8th time!
It's time once again for Team DJ5K to run Yankee Stadium while raising money for cancer research! Every penny we raise goes directly to the Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation and no amount is too big or too small. We hope you'll support us as we run this race for the 8th time!
Team DJ5K is a family team of me, my brother, my brother-in-law, and my stepdad and we run in memory of my angel nephew Derek James. Our team name is Derek's initials, and we know he will be watching over us while we race.
I will also be running in memory of my family and friends I have lost to this terrible disease: Grandpa Bill, Grammy and Grandpa, Mr. Crowley, Ryan West, and David Bowie and Walter Becker, who's music altered the very fiber of my being.
We run in support of our friends and family who have beaten this disease and continue to fight everyday - we love you!
Thank you for supporting Team DJ5K!
On Saturday, May 11, I will participate in the 11th annual Damon Runyon 5K at Yankee Stadium – a unique fundraising run/walk that uses the Stadium as its course. I'll get to explore the concourses and ramps, climb stairs between levels, and take my own victory laps around the warning track that circles the field.
100% of the money I raise will be used by the Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation to fund innovative research by today's most brilliant young scientists, who are racing to find the causes and cures for all types of cancer.
Please make a donation that supports my run/walk.
You can choose the amount you want to give – all donations are gratefully received!
Thank you for your support.
