This event meant so much more to me than simply running a 5K.
I did a 5K for Melanoma Research Foundation. I talked about it earlier this year when I decided to raise money for the group. But the experience today surpassed anything I could have expected.
I ran for me (I am a melanoma survivor), I ran for my friend Kelly, whose father passed away from melanoma, and I just ran for anyone that deals with this horrible disease.
It was a beautiful day. Our team had a great time and raised a lot of money.
I do not know if you call this volunteering… but it is definitely giving my time for a specific cause.
I will be running a 5k in June in support of the Melanoma Research Foundation. This hits close to my heart because I, myself, had melanoma four years ago.
I am blessed that I caught it early and am now free of it but know there are many other people that are not as fortunate.
So I am running this 5k and raising money for the foundation.
Here is a link if anyone would like to support the cause- Megan’s Fundraising.
Every dollar counts and is appreciated.
