Greetings! Thank you for taking the time to visit my fundraising page!

Here is my story:

My name is Kacey Carter and I am a recent college graduate from Marist College where I played DI Women's Lacrosse. I currently work at Peak Performance Physical Therapy and at Lynbrook High School as the district Athletic Trainer. I also am a volunteer EMT with the Lynbrook Fire Department. 

Since graduating college, I started running again and on November 12, 2016, I completed my first half marathon. It was the most awesome feeling of accomplishment! I knew then that I would like to run another race in the near future and dedicate my efforts for someone incredibly special to me: my Aunt Kathy. 

My Aunt Kathy passed away from complications due to leukemia on December 13, 2015. It was heartbreaking for me and my family when she left us so suddenly as she was such a big part of our family. She was my godmother and dubbed herself my "colorful aunt" because of her bubbly, strong, and always outgoing personality. She loved and treated me like her own daughter. The memories I have of her are endless and I cherish every single of one them.

I am running the 2017 NYC Half Marathon to honor the memory of my beloved Aunt Kathy. I know that she is my guardian angel and will help me get through every step of this journey to find my greatness. Running the NYC Half Marathon is a privilege and being a part of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society's Team in Training (TNT) is an honor. By participating as a member of TNT, I am raising funds to help find cures and ensure access to treatments for blood cancer patients.

Your donation will help fund treatments that save lives every day. You may not know it, but every single donation helps save a life. Patients need cures and they need your support.

I would deeply appreciate any donation in support of my efforts with Team in Training to help get us closer to a world without blood cancers.

Thank you!

Love Always,
