BENEFITING: BRIGHT PINK
ORGANIZER: BRIGHT PINK
EVENT DATE: Oct 09, 2016
On October 9th, 2016 I will be running the Bank of America Chicago Marathon as part of Team Bright Pink.
Bright Pink is a national nonprofit that empowers young women to reduce their risk of breast and ovarian cancer and detect these diseases early while they're still treatable. Their free educational programs make prevention and early detection a persistent and positive part of their lives.
I was introduced to Bright Pink last fall when Grace and Helen's New Trier Girls Cross Country Team chose to run 800 miles in one day as a team and raised over $11,000 for Bright Pink. Like many of you, I have had friends and family members diagnosed with breast or ovarian cancer, and appreciate the importance of prevention and early detection.
Our Chicago Marathon Team Bright Pink goal is 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 my reach my personal fundraising goal of $2000 by donating today. Thank you!
