Hello All ~
I'm so excited to be Team Captain of The Pink Agenda (TPA) 2016 marathon team this year!
Here's why :
In 2013, my mom and two of my aunts were diagnosed with breast cancer within weeks of each other. Each fought different battles, and I’m so happy to be able to say they won. They are all healthy and cancer-free today.
In 2014, I wanted to do something more to raise hell against breast cancer. So, I signed up to run with team TPA. At the time, I didn’t know much about TPA and had never run as a part of a charity team. However, the more I got to know TPA, the more I realized I had found the right place to do my best to make change.
It was such a special experience, surpassing my fundraising goal and running my best marathon yet. I just knew I needed to do it again. And, that if I was going to do it again, I needed to step it up. This is what led me to volunteer to be Team Captain this year!
I am proud to be running and raising money with the 14 other inspiring individuals on Team TPA. Together we are going to run NYC and RAISE HELL against breast cancer!
Much love & gratitude,

The Pink Agenda is proud to be an official charity partner of the 2016 TCS New York City Marathon. To date - our runners have raised over $500,000 for breast cancer research! Running 26.2 miles isn’t easy, but neither is battling—or eradicating—breast cancer.
The Pink Agenda is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization committed to raising money for breast cancer research and care, as well as awareness of the disease among young professionals. Born of the belief that engaging today’s generation can go a long way toward finding tomorrow’s cure, The Pink Agenda finds, funds, and partners with people and programs that are improving the lives of those suffering from breast cancer and conducting the groundbreaking research necessary to improve their odds.
We are grateful to the members of Team TPA for aligning their athletic ambitions with their philanthropic ones and all those who support them. Together, we can make breast cancer history.
