Welcome to Team Running for Dad
May 22, 2013

We have signed up with Team-in-Training and are going to run the San Diego Rock'n'Roll Half Marathon on June 2, 2013! Why are we running? We are Running for Dad!

Paul was diagnosed with lymphoblastic lymphoma in August, 2012. During the last year, we have witnessed his strength as he has battled his disease, which is now in remission. We also witnessed both how much the medical world knows about treating his disease and how far it has to go to find a cure.

We are running, so that if dad's cancer returns, we know that we have helped to find that cure. We are committed to raising $7,500 as a team, and we ask you to join us. Please click on the button at right to make a contribution.

Our team page will remain up and open for contributions for at least a month after the run!

Clara Fassinger and Maria Ontiveros

    "I love that you are doing this, Rinda, and I really love that you are doing it with Clara! I was going to contribute $25, but when I saw that I could donate "in memory" I doubled it because I KNOW if my mom was here she'd made a donation too. "
