Dear Friends and Family,

"In charity there is no excess" ~ Sir Frances Bacon.

This is a motto by which I have chosen to live my life. It is with this in mind, that I have registered to run the New York City marathon for charity. The charity that spoke to me most is Team Continuum. Team Continuum is a non-profit organization dedicated to taking immediate care of anyone involved in fighting cancer. They give cancer patients access to the everyday cure. They fill in the physical and emotional gaps of support so cancer patients can have the strength to focus on their treatment. Currently, Team Continuum has raised and distributed more than $3.5 m.
We have all known people, near and far, who have suffered from cancer. We have all been personally affected in one way or another by cancer. We have seen the emotional toll cancer takes on the patient, friends and families. I believe cancer is the most serious illness facing us today; it does not discriminate and it does not relent.
Please sponsor me by donating to this amazing nonprofit. Donations are tax deductible and can be made on my page. Every dollar goes a long way in making a difference in someone’s life.
Thank you for your support,
Craig Nassi
