THE BREAST CANCER RESEARCH FOUNDATION® (BCRF) IS RUNNING THE 2016 TCS NEW YORK CITY MARATHON TO RAISE CRITICAL FUNDS FOR LIFESAVING MEDICAL RESEARCH.
Our BCRF marathon team is diverse—we are survivors, family members, employees, supporters, allies, professionals, runners, non-runners, and even researchers. But what we have in common is one thing: the desire and dedication to do our part to help bring about a cure for breast cancer in our lifetime. For over 20 years, BCRF-funded researchers have been at the forefront of nearly every significant breakthrough in understanding, preventing and treating the disease. We know that the answers continue to lie in science, and that the only thing standing in the way is research funding. With your help, together we can accelerate progress and achieve a world without breast cancer.
HERE'S HOW YOU CAN HELP ME:
• Click the big DONATE button and contribute anything you can to support BCRF on my behalf.
• Plan to scream your heart out for me on RACE DAY. As many of you know, Marathon Sunday is one of my favorite days to be a New Yorker--there's nothing more magical than than the whole city coming alive to support 50,000 runners. I'd love to see your smiling faces along the way!
The Breast Cancer Research Foundation® is an independent 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization whose mission is to achieve prevention and a cure for breast cancer in our lifetime by providing critical funding for innovative clinical and translational research at leading medical centers worldwide, and increasing public awareness about good breast health.
