**SUPPORT BRIGHT PINK**
Years ago, my sweet beautiful grandmother was taken from us far too early from ovarian cancer. For years I've wanted to do something in her honor and raise awareness and prevention for this terrible disease that takes so many women each year. In October, I'll be running the Chicago marathon with an organization called Bright Pink. Bright Pink's mission is to raise awareness and educate women on prevention for Ovarian Cancer, Breast Cancer, and all other diseases that affect women!
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.
Let's continue to raise awareness and discuss prevention for all the deadly diseases out there, and celebrate the fact that we live in a time where people are proactively joining together, and taking the initiative to change the world.
"I believe that now, more than ever we have the opportunity to shift a national conversation from one centered on awareness to one focused on life-saving action."
Are you ready to help change lives?
