I'm dedicating this one to Rich Pearl. #FCKCNCR

Richard Pearl lost an awful six month battle against lung cancer on March 19th. Rich, husband of Michele and father of Ethan and Oliver, was a golfer, a fisherman, and both a runner and volunteer at RACE Cancer Foundation races. Rich was not a smoker. So how could he get lung cancer? This is why I am running my 14th consecutive Boston Marathon (bib 13991) with RACE Cancer Foundation to raise funds for Find The Cause. FTC's mission of funding scientific research on the environmental causes of breast cancer will help us understand and prevent other cancers, including lung cancer. Rich and his family did not deserve cancer's death sentence. Please donate what you can and help find the cause. THANK YOU! Please also share this page with others: rcm.nu/boston2018
