My mom, Julie Kodesch/Goodfriend, put up a two year battle against Colon Cancer. She passed away September 11, 2013. There isn't a day that goes by that I don't think of her. She made huge impacts on my life that made me who I am today.
For the past few years, I have fundraised and ran in memory of my mom at the Saratoga Get Your Rear in Gear 5K. However, last year the organizer stepped fown and there is no longer a race held locally.
So this year I've teamed up with the Colon Cancer Alliance in support of National Dress in Blue Day. During National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month this March, I'll be raising funds, and honoring my mom, Julie.
Please consider making a contribution today. Your support of National Dress in Blue Day will benefit the Colon Cancer Alliance’s mission and their screening, patient support and research programs and help bring us one step closer a to future free of colon cancer.
Even if you don't make a contribution, wear blue on March 3rd for the 9th Annual Dress in Blue Day to raise national awareness for colon cancer.
Thank you in advance for your love and support!
