BENEFITING: BRIGHT PINK
ORGANIZER: BRIGHT PINK
EVENT DATE: Oct 08, 2017
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.
In 2016, my sister-in-law was faced with a battle that was unimaginable and life changing for her and my brother, as well as both of our families. Through a tremendous amount of love, faith, and prayers from so many people and a tremendous amount of support, my sister in law started 2017 cancer free!! This will be my 5th marathon and last year was by far my most special one because I joined Bright Pink and ran for someone so dear to me and so many other women that battle this every day. This was life changing for me in ways that I cannot describe. This year I will run for my beautiful sister-in-law, Lamis Nickeas that is cancer free and for the women that continue to battle this nightmare. Any donation will go toward a tremendous cause to provide the education necessary to women and to potentially save lives. Thank you in advance for your generosity and support!
