I'm a terrible fundraiser, I find it very awkward and uncomfortable. And yet I keep doing it, so bear with me!

This year I'm running as a member of the National Hospice Foundation's Run to Remember team. We're not running to cure anything, we're running to honor those that we've loved and lost and who were aided by hospice workers during their time of need.

Those who receive hospice care do not survive, it is up to those they left behind to celebrate their lives and help their memories live on. I am running the Marine Corps Marathon in memory of my mother-in-law. The world lost an amazing woman in Alice, she did so much for her friends and family during her life and I would like to, in any small way, give back a fraction of that care and concern to others in need. Running 26.2 miles is easy compared to how hard it is to have someone in hospice care and how hard the hospice staff works to provide compassionate care and support.

To follow marathon training runs (fascinating, I know), you can visit my blog: Rob Runs to Remember.

Or visit my personal donation page to learn more about the mission, Alice, and to donate.

Alice and I in 2007, they say men marry women who look like their moms, whaddya think?
