The folks at the Huntsman Cancer Institute were kind enough to allow me to use their name at the upcoming 2016 Marathon des Sables. It very common for runners to promote charities or social causes. I'll be running for the Huntsman Cancer Institute.
Personally I've been a recipient of Jon Huntsman's generosity. His contributions to Utah State University's business school allowed me to travel the world. I know that defeating cancer is one of his biggest passions in life. I’ve accepted a challenge from the Huntsman Cancer Institute to try and raise some money for cancer research. My Goal is a very modest one, but I’m hoping to hit it before the race on April 8. This donation isn't about funding my fee for the race. Everything has already been paid for. It's simply a gesture to try and raise some money for people that really need it.
To the extent that you are able or willing, please consider donating a few dollars to the Huntsman Cancer Institute. Simply click on the ‘HUNTSMAN CANCER INSTITUTE DONATION PAGE’ button below to be brought to my Huntsman donation page. The work of the Huntsman Cancer Institute saves lives, and the money that goes into cancer research, as much as it seems, isn’t enough. I am immensely proud to be representing such a marvelous organization at the Marathon des Sables.
