This year I will be participating in the 16th Annual Chicago Half Marathon and 5K on Sunday, September 9, 2012. I will be running the 5K.
Ovarian Cancer Symptom Awareness (OCSA) has partnered with Miami, Florida’s Message from Marli Foundation (MFM) to create the “Teal Turtles" team. MFM is a like-minded organization devoted to heightening awareness and spreading the word about the silent symptoms of ovarian cancer in the hope of saving lives. Sadly, Marli Wolff (MFM co-founder) and my dear friend Susan Roman (OCSA co-founder) lost their battles with ovarian cancer within a month of each other in the first quarter of 2012. I will run in their honor.
We'd love for you to join our team and participate by running with us on September 9th. You can register by visiting www.ovariancancersymptomawareness.org or www.messagefrommarli.org.
if you aren't able to participte by running please consider donating to my team, all proceeds will go towards spreading the word about this silent killer - which is a very important cause.
Thank you much,
