Cancer Survivor David Emerson Awarded Volkswagen Cup at Cleveland Marathon
Date:6/17/2013

Cleveland, Ohio (PRWEB) June 17, 2013

David Emerson, a nineteen-year multiple myeloma survivor with severe nerve damage in his legs, proved that there are many different kinds of winners at events like the Cleveland Marathon. While he didn’t place in the winning circle for his hand-cycling, he did win the Volkswagen Cup. The esteemed award recognizes the individual who raised the most funds for charity at the event. Emerson was able to raise more than $20,000 for his non-profit cancer website, PeopleBeatingCancer.org. The website provides a full-spectrum of cancer information to cancer patients and their caregivers, all from the comfort and privacy of their own homes.

As a first timer on the marathon fundraising circuit, Emerson competed in the Cleveland Marathon to raise money for his new initiative: cancer coaching. Through his own battle with cancer and remission, Emerson found that many of the decisions that cancer survivors and caregivers need to make require a level of knowledge that is difficult to master in small time-frame.

“Being able to talk to a long-term cancer survivor, whether to ask about a specific protocol or to discuss broader wellness issues can make all the difference when it comes to finding a treatment that works for you,” says Emerson.

Taking a gamble by foregoing the foundation’s traditional walkathon in favor of hand-cycling at the Cleveland Marathon, David was pleasantly surprised with the award.
