I'm a recent Stage III Grade III Breast Cancer Survivor.  You can follow my story by reading this press release and subsequently clicking the Links in it to find my latest Blogs.   I'm running a marathon in a few months to fight back against this ridiculous disease.  I am NOT a runner, but doing it to prove we CAN WIN this fight and LIVE EVERY DAY we are here.  Make sure to watch the VIDEO Trailer (1 minute cinematic video)

Yes, that is correct.  They also will be donating money to American Cancer Society.   You can elect to have your monies go to either or both.   The Million Dollar Run, all money raised by way of runners goes to charity.   Please know, Above+Beyond must keep in line with minimal expenses to remain compliant as a 501c3 non-profit that they are designated.   Also, any expenditures for the Million Dollar Run will be paid from corporate sponsors.   Thus leaving, donations to runners going to the charities.

So....share share share my story.   I hope to inspire others to do great things going above & Beyond cancer.

Above+Beyond typically takes groups of cancer survivors on treks up mountains as well.    I know Dr. Deming personally and Charlie Whittmack.  Amazing organization.   Watch this video  so awesome.   vimeo.com/49930681    I cry everytime I watch it.
