Be Your Possible is a new type of charitable organization that's raising awareness and funds for medical research while inspiring us all to take steps towards our own possible.
For founder and cancer survivor Peter Kirk, his "possible" is running 1,000 half marathons by the 10th anniversary of his blood stem cell transplant to raise money for life-saving research and help inspire others to find and become their possible.
Being neutropenic for 15 years and diagnosed at the height of the Covid-19 pandemic with Acute Leukemia (AML) racing through his veins, as well as double lung pneumonia, Sermo CEO, husband and father of three Peter Kirk is a cancer survivor who received a life-saving blood stem cell transplant 8 months after diagnosis, in June 2021 at NYC’s Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.
When Peter crossed the finish line of the 2021 NYC Marathon five months post-transplant, he knew that his life's work had only just begun. It’s now Peter’s mission to raise money for medical research – an integral part of improving patient outcomes – and empower and inspire others along the way.
Peter’s survivor story could not have been written without the crucial medical research that has advanced the science of stem cell bone marrow transplants.
He remains forever grateful to his 25-year-old donor who gave 850 million wonderful stem cells to save his life.
All funds from Be Your Possible will go to Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, where Peter received his life-saving stem cell bone marrow transplant.
Run with Peter funds are distributed to medical research associations broadly based on what participants choose. See who benefited here.
