Any Sport, Any Race, Anywhere!

$150,000 in funds raised as 90 members of Team IA cross the finish line benefitting Imerman Angels’ mission to enable 1-on-1 cancer support for cancer fighters, survivors and caregivers

Team Shot

Congratulations, Team Imerman Angels, for completing the 2013 Bank of America Chicago Marathon.  We believe that every fundraising page created, jersey worn while training, and each individual informed of the Imerman Angels mission helps raise awareness to ensure that no one faces cancer alone.

Angels

Our marathon weekend began with the Bank of America Chicago Marathon Health and Fitness Expo at McCormick Place Convention Center.  Guests were invited to browse more than 200 exhibitors of marathon apparel, footwear, and latest fitness technology.  On Saturday evening, Team Imerman Angels members and their families were invited to enjoy a protein-packed pasta dinner at Bongiorno’s courtesy of Imerman Angels.

Team Imerman Angels, headed by first time marathon runner and head of Team IA recruiting  Khitam Masoud, was comprised of 90 members from all over the United States and beyond.  Masoud, a two-time cancer survivor, first decided to run with Imerman Angels last year when she met Israel Antonio, a blind athlete who runs for various organizations.  His determination to overcome challenges inspired Khitam to train hard and cross the finish line in support of Imerman Angel’s cause.

Snow Angels help promote Imerman Angels 1-on-1 Cancer Support

Parts of the United States are blanketed in snow. People are home from work and have extra time to create words like “snowpocalypse” and “blizaster”. With all this bonus time, we put together a list of 7 things you can do from home to help ensure no one faces cancer alone:

  1. Tell someone you know about our service. We personally connect anyone fighting cancer with a cancer survivor just like them. These “Mentor Angels” (now more than 4,000!) are carefully selected and have beaten the same cancer, at the same stage, with the same treatment. Our service is for anyone living anywhere with any type of cancer. It’s free. Just point them to http://imermanangels.org/get-cancer-support.php or have them call toll free 877-274-5529.
  2. Upload a photo of a Snow Angel to your social media profile and add the caption “Imerman Angels helps ensure no one faces cancer alone. www.imermanangels.org
  3. Request brochures through our website and distribute them to doctors, nurses, and cancer professionals you know. Check it out at http://imermanangels.org/support-us.php
  4. Use social media to raise awareness – thousands of people hear about our free cancer support service from the use of social media. Here’s a list of simple ways to help in 5 minutes or less: http://imermanangels.org/support-us/make-an-impact-right-now.php
  5. Run a race or join a team to raise awareness and funds. Last year almost 200 marathon runners wore Imerman Angels jerseys and raised funds to promote our mission and help ensure no one faces cancer alone. Sign up at http://www.firstgiving.org/imermanangels
  6. Plan an event to benefit Imerman Angels – last year alone people planned benefits ranging from simple parties with a few friends to sophisticated tournaments with hundreds of people. You can too, check out our event hosting page at http://imermanangels.org/news-and-events/third-party-events.php
  7. Feeling generous? Make a tax-deductible donation online at http://imermanangels.org/support-us/donate-or-sponsor.php

Congratulations to all of our Active runners who made it across the finish line!  We noticed more light blue jerseys than ever this year and appreciate everyone who showed love for 1-on-1 cancer support by repping IA in the streets.  We also wanted to thank the marathon for donating tips from the beer tent to us!  This generous donation, along with the vendors, trainers and volunteers in our post-race tent, are huge to us and our mission.  Your support helps us to ensure that no one faces cancer alone!
