26 days away!

BENEFITING: BRIGHT PINK
ORGANIZER: BRIGHT PINK
EVENT DATE: Oct 09, 2016
We run our for our moms, our sisters, our friends… ourselves. We believe the women we love deserve a world free from breast and ovarian cancer. In 2016, runners competing in the Bank of America Chicago Marathon will rally together to raise over $200,000 for charity partner Bright Pink.
$200,000 has the power to educate and potentially save the lives of nearly 50,000 young women through Bright Pink’s educational programs.
To all of you who have supported me in past Avon Walks, you have my deepest thanks, and I welcome you back as an important part of my “team.”
I'm running the marathon for so many reasons: because there are three million women in the United States living with breast cancer—and one third of them don’t even know it. Because no one knows what causes breast cancer or how it can be prevented or cured. And because I know too many people who have struggled with and been affected by this awful disease. This disease is one that has personally touched my family, so this October I will be running 26.2 miles in memory of my mother Lili, whose life was cut short by Breast Cancer in 2004.
