Dear Fellow Warrior,
Thank you, from the bottom of my heart and all hearts affected by this insidious disease, for the amazing and humbling outcome you showed to our cause last year. As a recap, the first annual Troy ASA Run/Walk in 2013 raised $25,000, with 320 racers crossing the finish line, 20 sponsors and 70 volunteers. Because of each one of you, we have helped change the way rare cancers are recognized. You make this world an amazing place to live. You inspire us all to share our lives and fight with everything we have to give.
As was stated last year, Angiosarcoma Awareness, Inc. (ASA) is a nationally recognized non-profit and an organization built upon, and run by, patient-advocates. From the event director of this race (myself), to the founders, chief scientific officer, and president, we are all affected by angiosarcoma, and have made it our life long goal to eradicate this disease. Please visit www.cureasc.org to learn more about ASA.
In addition to the 10K, 5K, and Kids Superhero Dash, we are very proud to advocate for a family friendly event once again. We will also have catering provided by Blackfinn, a huge selection of raffle prizes, live music and a tribute wall. For the kids, we will have a bounce house, face painting, balloon making, and cotton candy machine, amongst other things. Read more on the Event Information page.
As proof from the last two years, this is an event supported by all walks of life to show we will not let life define us, but we will strive to define life together. Although 100% of all funds go directly to labs funded by ASA, we have a tribute wall and honor all of those who have lost the battle, who are currently fighting, and who will unfortunately join the fight against ANY tragedy or ailment later in life. We make it known that nobody fights alone; not for a single second.
We encourage you to join us on May 2, 2015 at Troy Athens High School in Troy, Michigan, for an event that promises to inspire and change your life. Trust me, I’m living proof.
We love you all.
