BENEFITING: THINK PINK ROCKS

ORGANIZER: THINK PINK ROCKS

EVENT: NYC Half 2011

EVENT DATE: Mar 20, 2011

THE STORY:

I ran my first half marathon last May in Brooklyn. Now wanting to race in the borough I call home, I decided to run the NYC Half Marathon for charity. My choice to join Think Pink Rock was simple... their mission is to raise awareness about early detection of and genetic testing for breast cancer and to provide funding for screening, treatment and research.

This charity is about as personal to me as it gets. I am running in memory of my grandmother, Sylvia and in honor of my mother, a breast cancer survivor. And because of the resources now available, I learned that I carry the gene and am thankful to Think Pink Rocks for their dedication to and support for this cause .

Thank you for your donation and more importantly for your support- it's gonna be a long, cold winter of training. Looking forward to seeing your face on race day as I run through the streets of Manhattan!

-Lindsey

Some info from THINK PINK ROCKS-

Did you know: • A woman's risk of developing breast and ovarian cancer is greatly increased if she carries the BRCA1 or BRCA2 mutation (Breast Cancer gene mutation). • Men with these mutations also have an increased risk of breast and prostate cancer. Our team will raise money and awareness for breast cancer research. All money raised for Think Pink Rocks from the New York City Half-Marathon will benefit breast cancer research at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York City. Some members of our team have a direct connection to breast cancer, but we also have many team members who are running or walking simply because they want to support a great cause.Think Pink Rocks is a 501 (c) (3) organization. Contributions to Think Pink Rocks are tax deductible to the extent allowable by law.
