BENEFITING: BRIGHT PINK
ORGANIZER: BRIGHT PINK
EVENT DATE: Oct 09, 2016
Hi Friends and Family,
I have chosen to run the 2016 Chicago Marathon for charity. The charity I went with is Bright Pink.
The reason I have picked this charity is as many of you know my sister just recently had treatment for breast cancer. She is doing great, we are so thankful for that. Along with my sister one of Paul's cousins, has finally been placed in remission status, after 11 years of battling breast and ovarian cancer. Her battle started in her early twenties. Her strength has inspired me so much.
I am asking you to help me in this journey, to run the Chicago Marathon and support this great organization. Every dollar no matter how small will help me reach my goal.
Bright pink helps with early detection of breast and ovarian cancer. They go to where young woman are, to help to them understand their risks of these cancers. 93 cents of every dollar you donate goes to their programs. Posted in their 2014 financial report.
