BENEFITING: The Breast Cancer Research Foundation
EVENT DATE: Oct 07, 2012
So this year I finally decided to get out there and run a Half Marathon in Long Island this October! This has been something I have been wanting to do for a while and thought this would be a good opportunity to raise some money for a cause that is close to my heart. My goal is to raise $500 for The Breast Cancer Research Foundation. I know most people know someone who has been affected by this disease and each $25 raised buys a half-hour of research to find a cure!!
Any donation amount you can make is much appreciated and will make a HUGE difference!
