New York bound!
November 04, 2016
BENEFITING: The Breast Cancer Research Foundation
ORGANIZER: The Breast Cancer Research Foundation
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
I am so excited to be running the TCS NYC Marathon as a part of Team BCRF! My mom loved New York City and I know she is smiling knowing that I have the opportunity to do one of my favorite things in one of her favorite places. Losing mom was so incredibly difficult, but the opportunity to honor her memory in this way is very special to me.
The race is Nov 6, 2016. As a member of Team BCRF I have a fundraising goal of $3,000. With your help I know I will exceed that goal with time to spare. The Breast Cancer Research Foundation is very responsible with their money. 91 cents of every dollar goes to research. Please join me in fighting to end breast cancer. #milesformarylou
