James Valentine is best known as Maroon 5’s guitarist; however the skillful musician is making a name for himself in the charity world. He has announced he will be running in the 2012 LA Marathon to benefit The Pablove Foudation.

Since working with the Teen Impact Program, an organization that provides support and activities for young people with cancer, at the Children’s Hospital in Los Angeles, Maroon 5 and Valentine have had great experiences.

In a letter Valentine posted on the organization’s site he said, “Over the years we have met amazing kids facing incredible challenges. These kids and their courage in the face of such odds have been a special inspiration for us.” For this reason he has decided to lend his efforts to the marathon and The Pablove Foundaiton.

The charity’s mission “is to fund pediatric cancer research and advances in treatment, educate and empower cancer families, and improve the quality of life for children living with cancer through hospital play, music and arts programs.”

Instead of a birthday gift, the selfless Valentine has asked everyone to give back and make a donation to The Pablove Foundation to sponsor his run. He celebrates his birthday on Oct. 5. “Now this isn’t purely altruism, I’ve always wanted to run a full marathon; with each dollar you send in, you’re emboldening my will to finish this thing,” he said.

Jogging is an escapement for Valentine and this way he can turn one of his favorite pastimes into a good cause! Valentine closed his letter with these thoughts, “Thanks in advance for fighting childhood cancer with love through your generous birthday gift!”
