Hi everyone - being new to this Facebook thing I know I probably posted my original request before I had made any friend requests so let me try to get this out there again. I am going to run in the Paris Marathon on April 5th and thought I would try to raise money for cancer research for my efforts. I am trying to reach the goal of 1000 British pounds for Cancer Research UK. I have 38 days left to reach this goal so anything you feel good about giving is appreciated. You can donate directly by going to Michael Selph's Giving Page at: As to the actual race, I am up to a half marathon distance on the weekends and am trying to up that over the next month. Your donations will also help inspire me to hopefully finish the full marathon. I have five weeks left to get there. So please give what you can and I'll run as far as I can. It helps to know that I'm running for more than just myself. Thank you all!

This is my first FaceBook post: I'm going to run in the Paris Marathon on April 5, 2020 and thought I'd try to raise some money for cancer research at the same time. Let me say up front that I may only finish the half marathon on that day but I've been training and am up to 10 miles so far with a little over two months to go. So we'll see. Anyway, I'm dedicating this effort to the memory of our dear friend Andy Rosen who was taken by leukemia back in 1993. He was such a beautiful young man and meant so much to all of us who were blessed to know him. He left us too young and is missed daily. So for Andy I will do my best to finish this race and I hope that you all can donate something in his honor and in honor of all the friends and loved ones we have lost to cancer. Your donations will also help inspire me to keep running and hopefully finish the entire marathon. My love and good thoughts to all! And thank you.
