We are 2 guys from Amsterdam both having faced the loss of friends and family to cancer and have decided to stand up and do something about it. We have decided to join in the race against cancer!
With no experience what so ever, alike people who suddenly come face to face with the challenges of this disease begin their battle with no experience at all, we have decided to run the NYC Marathon in November 2014. Although our struggle is nothing compared to those dealing with this illness, it will still be a long and tough journey to reach our goal.
In this symbolic gesture we would like to raise money for the organizations that put in all their efforts into finding a cure and for the people that are treating the ill on a day to day basis.
But that’s not all!
One of us being a photographer, we will create a document on film and photography of those living the life of a person dealing with cancer. This will result in a series of photography portraits (expo/book) and a 1 hour film documentary of both their and our journey in the following 9 months.
We will share stories of people that are cured and not cured from cancer on this Facebookpage and in the final document and thus putting a FACE on the disease.
We will also share our own progress in the training, preparation, finding sponsors, collaborations with organizations and companies that feel they want to be linked to our cause.
This is our little effort to join in the race against cancer.
Together we will face the race.
Jaimie Peeters and Rudra Panday
