I have been selected to represent the American Cancer Society (ACS) while racing in one of the worlds most difficult endurance events, The World Marathon Challenge. The World Marathon Challenge is a race that consists of 7 marathons in 7 days, on 7 continents. Yes, thats 7 marathons in one week, all around the world!! The race will begin on February 6, 2020 starting in Antarctica and end on February 13th in Miami. I have chosen to compete in this race as a way to challenge myself both physically and mentally, but more importantly to raise awareness and funds to help fight cancer. I will run this race to honor my dad, Arthur Roedel who died an untimely death because of Multiple Myeloma.
I have pledged to raise $150,000 for this great cause. Running to help fight cancer is something that I am driven to do, passionate about, and being able to have the privilege to complete in one of the most challenging races on the planet is certainly an awesome bonus! I hope that through my actions and sacrifices needed to compete inspires others to join the fight. I could not be more excited to have joined with ACS on their mission to save lives, celebrate lives, and lead the fight for a world without cancer. I hope you’ll join too.
Cancer has affected all of us in one way or another- maybe we ourselves have cancer, or we know someone who has been diagnosed or who has died from it. If you’re like me, you’re tired of watching people you love suffer from such an awful disease. It’s time we do something to help save lives. It’s time to create change!
Being able to help and support others is something I am incredibly passionate about. I have made a career out of helping others. I want to leave my mark on this world so that when I look back at my life, I can say that I gave it my all, that I helped as many people as I could, making a difference in their lives through my actions and words.
Please join in helping me in ridding the world of cancer.
