I'm choosing to run for The Icelandic Cancer Society because of my close connection to cancer. My aunt was diagnosed with cancer a few years back and has fought the battle to overcome and defeat cancer. I know not everyone gets to have that outcome, so in light of that I'm running to raise funds for cancer research and the hopes that cancer can be ultimately defeated one day.
Anyone can donate to the charities chosen by the runners of the Islandsbanki Reykjavik Marathon an amount of their choice. By donating you are both encouraging the runners and doing a good deed.
