Lisa's Ladies: Virtual Mother's Day x COVID-19 Relief
About My Campaign
Friends & Family,
As you may know, Mother's Day has looked a little different for me for the previous three years. As we approach the 4th year this weekend, it looks even more different, as we're all facing a global pandemic, distanced from our friends and families.
Each Mother's Day, I usually participate in a 5K Race for the Cure in Chicago, filling my weekend with happy memories surrounded by loved ones on what always proves to be a difficult day for me. Each year, my Lisa's Ladies team grows bigger and bigger and raises more and more money for an amazing cause - finding a cure for what took my most favorite human away from me too soon. Unfortunately, this year's Race for the Cure was postponed due to COVID-19.
BUT - that will not stop me from bringing together (virtually) all my friends and family to continue to not only raise money for a cure, but also for the healthcare providers working the frontlines during this unprecedented and trying time. Why not help both causes to make an even bigger impact?
This year specifically, I have decided to redirect my fundraising efforts straight to the source - NYU Langone Cancer Center, where my mom spent much of her time getting treatment. There are so many reasons to get involved with this community that’s working together to enable the best medical care, research, and education. But this cause in particular is special to me for so many reasons.
I know there are many causes to be donating to during these times, but if you feel motivated to donate any amount to my cause, no matter the size, please do. Your gift would mean so much to me, and even more to so many others who depend on the work of NYU Langone's faculty and staff. Let's help the healthcare workers helping to find a cure!
Thank you always for your continued support - and happy Mother's Day.
