Richard Nares, executive director and co-founder of the Emilio Nares Foundation (ENF), will run 700 miles in 30 days to raise funds for ENF, which bears his late son's name.

He will begin his epic journey on May 4th, 2013 just north of the San Francisco Golden Gate Bridge and finish at San Diego's Rady Children's Hospital on June 1st, 2013. 

Go Richard, Go!"More than 12 years ago, I made a promise to Emilio when we saw runners outside his hospital room in Boston where he was undergoing a bone marrow transplant; that I would run that city's famous marathon. I've since qualified for the race three times," said Nares. "Now, I will run 700 miles to generate awareness and much-needed funds so that our non-profit organization can provide programs and services for low-income, underprivileged families whose children are battling leukemia and other childhood cancer. If my son could be so courageous during his illness, then I can and will find the strength to run from San Francisco to San Diego in 30 days so that we can help more families whose children are fighting cancer."
 
                                                                                              Richard's goal is to raise $125,000 from the run through individual and corporate contributions. Please consider making a gift to support Richard.

About the Emilio Nares Foundation

Richard and Diane Nares lost their only child to cancer. Turning tragedy into hope, the Nares family created the Emilio Nares Foundation (ENF). ENF provides information and support for the parents of children who have cancer. Our resource directory provides updates on treatments, medical information, community support systems for financial assistance, and emotional support.

Our flagship program, Ride with Emilio, has been nationally recognized by President Barack Obama and the US Surgeons General as a model program. Ride With Emilio is a free transportation service for families and their children with cancer to access chemotherapy and other medical appointments.
