Raising Awareness and Accomplishing Goals

BENEFITING: BRIGHT PINK
ORGANIZER: BRIGHT PINK
EVENT DATE: Oct 08, 2017
Hi Friends and Family-
On October 8th, 2017 I will be checking off an item on my "bucket list". I will be travelling to Chicago to compete in my very first FULL marathon. For those of you that have completed a 26.2 mile course you understand the mental and physical preparation that goes into accomplishing this feat. I am by no means attempting to break records or qualify for another (or probably do another)- I am running to finish the race and raise awareness for a cause that is close to my heart. I am running for a great team- TEAM BRIGHT PINK. Team Bright Pink raises awareness and funds for early detection and prevention of breast and ovarian cancer.
I'm running for MY Mom, Grandmother, Mother-in-laws, Aunts, Sisters, Cousins, Friends, Co-Workers so their future has better options to kick cancers butt. I'm asking for your help to raise funds so that when I cross that finish line my run will have been for something MORE than just me.

In 2017, runners competing in the 40th Anniversary of 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 80,000 young women through Bright Pink’s educational programs.
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. Join us on this mission to save women’s lives.
