THE STORY:

Anyone who knows me can probably tell you that pink is not my favorite color, and anyone who knew me before one year ago could definitely tell you that running has not always been my favorite activity. That said, this spring I ordered a customized pair of pink Nike sneakers and signed up for the 2016 TCS New York City Marathon.

Helping in the fight against breast cancer is a personal issue for me, as this disease has affected many people I love, including my amazing grandmother, Jeanne Salmon, my most joyful aunt, Jane Salmon, and my beautiful Godmother, Joanne Stone. On July 14, 2016, my Auntie Joanne passed away after a twelve-year battle with breast cancer. Every day I was in complete awe of her strength, courage and steadfast determination to fight this disease. She is truly an inspiration, and I could not be more proud to wear pink and dedicate this race to her. I love you endlessly, Auntie Jo, and I'll be channeling your spirit through every last mile.

While the thought of running 26.2 miles is certainly daunting, it simply cannot compare to what all breast cancer patients, fighters and survivors go through. Please join me in supporting the research that allows my family, and countless others, to keep our hope for a cure alive. Let’s #BeTheEnd of breast cancer.
