Stand-Up Comedy for Cancer / Fred's Team Fundraiser
Money raised at this event will help fund crucial pediatric cancer research at Memorial Sloan Kettering. Stephanie is running the 2011 ING NYC Marathon with Fred's Team this year. Her goal is $5,000.00.
was named in honor of running legend and co-founder of the New York City Marathon, Fred Lebow
- a man who dared to dream of a world without cancer.
While being treated at Memorial Sloan-Ketting
in 1991, Fred jogged down the hospital hallways, determined to run to raise money for a cure. Fred encouraged runners competing in that year's New york City Marathon to solicit donations for each mile they ran. The response was overwhelming: More than $650,000 was raised to benefit Sloan-Kettering. In 1992, Fred asked for donations to his own New York City Marathon run, the final of his storied career.
Inspired by this one remarkable idea, Fred's Team
has grown to include thousands of dedicated athletes and novices alike, competing in hundreds of events worldwide, raising millions of dollars each year. Since 1995, the team has raised more than $42 million to fund pioneering research that saves lives and brings hope to countless men, women and children.
