Story

I just wanted to let you know that last Sunday, on a perfect autumn day, I completed the Berlin Marathon in a personal best time of 2:52:25.

With your help, I’ve raised over $4,000 for The Institute of Cancer Research (ICR).

Thank you so much for your support!

Paul

I'm running for my family and friends. In memoriam: my father Adrian and my father-in-law Howie, both of whom left us too soon. For my mother-in-law Laurel, who continues the fight and my good friend Ben who is on the road to recovery. 

In case you haven't read them, these articles and photos say it best:

Paul, I read the story of your in-laws and admire their strength and the support all in the family provided. I have been blessed, to date our family is cancer free but consider helping to find a cure.
