Kevin Root is raising money for a very special cause after discovering 3-year-old Allen McKee, a boy suffering from the same blood cancer that Root had as a baby.

You can visit the gofundme campaign to get more information and donate. GoFundMe is like Kickstarter, but often with very personal fundraising goals. 

There's also more info at Root's Running for Allen blog and Facebook page.

Root's gofundme introduction:

On March 16th I will be running my first marathon in honor of 3 year-old Allen McKee, who has the same type of blood cancer that I had as a baby. Over the next 4 weeks I hope to raise $1,000 to help the McKee family with his medical bills. If I reach this goal, I will shave my head bald for the marathon to show my support for those battling cancer. 

No matter how much you are able to contribute, know that you are making a difference for the McKee family. Read Allen's Story and learn more about my reasons for doing this. 

Thank you in advance for your generous support!
Kevin Root
