Friends and Family,
In an effort to raise money for breast cancer research, I have finally decided to strap on the running shoes and run the NYC maraton w/ my brother Patrick, and best friends Duffy, Sam, and Rob. I have been training for the past 2 months and can assure you marathon training is nothing compared to the fight I have personally witnessed my wife Lisa Moeller go through every day.
I want to thank you all for your support in this venture despite the fact I hate running, have flat feet, and distance has never been my forte. Any amount will be greatly appreciated and cannot thank you enough for standing behind Lisa and breast cancer research.
THE BREAST CANCER RESEARCH FOUNDATION® (BCRF) IS RUNNING THE 2014 TCS NYC MARATHON TO RAISE CRITICAL FUNDS FOR LIFESAVING MEDICAL RESEARCH.
Our BCRF marathon team is diverse—we are survivors, family members, employees, supporters, allies, professionals, runners, non-runners, and even researchers. But what we have in common is one thing: the desire and dedication to do our part to help bring about a cure for breast cancer in our lifetime. For over 20 years, BCRF-funded researchers have been at the forefront of nearly every significant breakthrough in understanding, preventing and treating the disease. We know that the answers continue to lie in science, and that the only thing standing in the way is research funding. With your help, together we can accelerate progress and achieve a world without breast cancer.
