Color Me Bad -- Samer Ghafari
Thank you for visiting my Cupid's Undie Run fundraising page!
I will be stripping to my skivvies and running around in the frigid temps this February, in memory of my best friend Brian McConnell, and in an effort to raise funds so kids can grow up happy and healthy.
Brian was diagnosed with Osteo Sarcoma (bone cancer) in the spring of 2000 during his junior year at Brother Rice. He missed his senior year but was invited to participate in the graduation ceremonies where he was presented with "The Spirit" award by the faculty and staff.
Brian unfortunately lost his battle to cancer April 1, 2003, but his memory lives on through the Brian Patrick McConnell Scholarship Foundation. (www.brianmcconnellfoundation.com).
I am running in my undies in the freezing cold because we are in a race to cure NF. I believe we can do it! And for the millions of NF families around the world, I sincerely thank you for your help.
If I am willing to get out there in the middle of winter in my undies and make this bold move for such a worthy cause, I hope that you can spare a few dollars to contribute.
Whether it be $5 or $500, every last donation to the Children's Tumor Foundation is appreciated, tax-deductible and goes a long way.
Just think - one donation could be equal to one night out to dinner, one movie with a friend, or your morning coffee. Save a life instead...
The Children's Tumor Foundation is the world's largest non-government organization dedicated to ending Neurofibromatosis (NF) through research. NF is a genetic disorder, usually manifesting during adolescence, that causes tumors to grow on nerves throughout the body, causing blindness, deafness, learning disabilities and severe chronic pain. Currently, there is no cure for NF and there are frighteningly few treatment options.
