BENEFITING: The Breast Cancer Research Foundation
ORGANIZER: The Breast Cancer Research Foundation
EVENT DATE: Nov 02, 2014
I have been running since my childhood soccer days. Running is no longer a chore or requirement for me. One of my favorite things is running through the greatest city in the world, NYC. Running is something you can do by yourself and under your own will and power. You have the choice to go in any direction, fast or slow as you see fit, urging yourself to keep going. Running is therapeutic for some and often taken for granted. I am running because I can. I am running for my family, friends and for my passion and dedication to run but most importantly, I am running by choice to honor those who have lost the courageous battle to breast cancer. I want to help raise money so our future generations can live a breast cancer free life.
Years ago, I would have never thought I would be running 26.2 miles in the city I’ve always dreamed to live in. I remember last year looking outside my apartment window on First Avenue watching inspired as the runners passed. I knew at that point this was something I was going to commit to. There is no better feeling then setting a goal and working towards achieving it.
26.2 miles will not be easy for me but, for those of you, who know me well, know I am always up for a challenge. Crossing the finish line will be one of my proudest moments and I thank each and every one of you for your support and encouragement. Each step I take, each mile I run will have a purpose.
So I ask you to please assist me in this fight to discover a cure for breast cancer by donating to this amazing organization and amazing cause.
