Last June I ran my first Race for the Place 5K, a fundraiser for The Gathering Place. From support groups and nutrition classes to medical libraries and their HairPeace Wig Salons, The Gathering Place provides programs for anyone affected by cancer in Greater Cleveland.
I ran it for my dad, who beat melanoma and two rounds of lymphoma with a smile on his face and strength that continues to amaze me.
On Saturday, November 23, you’ll have the chance to support The Gathering Place’s mission — and you don’t need to lace up a pair of sneakers to do it.
