2013 Philadelphia Marathon

November 15-17, 2013 Philadelphia Marathon logo

Jill Just Wants 2 Help (JJW2H) is proud to have been selected by the Philadelphia Marathon as an official Charity Partner for the 2013 race as this selection provided a unique opportunity to raise awareness of Jill Just Wants 2 Help.

We would like to acknowledge and thank our runners - Amy and Justin Miloszewski chose to run the half marathon while Alister Renwick ran the full marathon on behalf of Jill Just Wants 2 Help. All three are experienced racers and JJW2H was fortunate to have this group raising funds for the organization.

Contributions raised by our racers have gone to a dedicated endowment fund at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, with the goal of building a home that will provide shelter and support to families whose children are receiving care at the hospital. Until this residence can be built, interest earned on the Fund serves a vital role in providing financial assistance to families trying to meet every day needs while caring for a child in the hospital.

Blue Bell couple The moment when Phil and Nancy Siegel realized their daughter had found a new calling came in a hospital room. Jillian A. Siegel, 20, was battling acute myeloid leukemia at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, but the Pennsylvania State University sophomore was working the phones and writing letters to help organize Thon, the giant annual charity dance marathon at her school. "We thought, 'We've got to stop this, she's got to rest,' " said Nancy Siegel, of Blue Bell. "But then we thought, this is the passion that you want your child to have."
