Welcome to Our Team Page
Thank you for supporting Laurie, Brian, and Eilish as we run the 2019 NYC Marathon in memory of Mary Cahalan. Mary - an amazing mother, aunt, and friend was an inspiration to everyone she met. Mary passed away on July 4, 2017--after a truly amazing life where she never let her fight with cancer beat her spirit. Mary received wonderful care from all the doctors and nurses at Memorial Sloan Kettering - which makes it so appropriate that we honor Mary and all the great work that MSK does through the 2019 Marathon as part of Fred's Team!
In 2005, Laurie & Eilish and a number of other wonderful women did their inaugural 3-Day 60-mile walk to fight breast cancer in Boston. We named ourselves "NYC Gals" and walked in honor of all those fighting breast cancer. One special survivor and our biggest cheerleader was Eilish's mom, Mary! Mary traveled to so many of our walks in various cities and was such an inspiration as she lived such a full life - even after her diagnosis many years earlier.
in 2006, Brian and Eilish ran the NYC Marathon with Fred's Team in memory of Eilish's Dad - Patrick Cahalan - who had also received wonderful care at MSK. We are honored to run with Fred's Team again in memory of Mary Cahalan.
Brian, Laurie, and Eilish have run NYC Marathons before -- but this one will be extra special as we know that every step of training and every dollar raised will help MSK work in the fight against cancer!
If you can - we would love your support in honor of Mary and all those who have fought the tough fight against cancer! Together - we can truly make a difference. And even though we know finishing the 2019 NYC Marathon won't be easy - together, we can do it!!
I CAN IMAGINE A WORLD WITHOUT CANCER
