ORGANIZER: BRIGHT PINK
EVENT DATE: Oct 09, 2016
Hi Friends and Family--
This summer I am training for the October 9th Bank of America Marathon in Chicago for--well, fun doesn't quite seem to be the right word. But I am running for a great cause and great charity--Bright Pink!
Bright Pink is the only national non-profit organization focused on prevention and early detection of breast and ovarian cancer in young women.
Their aim is to reach the 52 million young women in the United States between the ages of 18 and 45 with innovative, life-saving breast and ovarian health programs, thereby empowering this and future generations of women to live healthier, happier, and longer lives.
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.
Please help me achieve my goal of raising $1,500 to support women's health accross the country.
