BENEFITING: The Breast Cancer Research Foundation
ORGANIZER: The Breast Cancer Research Foundation
I am very excited to be running the 2017 TCS New York City Marathon! I’m running in honor of my wife Lisa and to help raise money for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF). Lisa is now cancer-free, but, as with many breast cancer patients, the disease was a life-changing event. We want to do whatever we can to help fund research to prevent or cure breast cancer.
My goal is to raise over $8,000 for the highest rated breast cancer charity in the USA. BCRF has earned a 4-star rating on Charity Navigator, the highest possible rating. A remarkable 91% of BCRF’s funds directly support cancer research and awareness programs. To learn more about its wonderful work, please visit https://www.bcrfcure.org/about.
Please help me make my first marathon a very memorable one. With your support, my training and hard work will be very meaningful knowing that our efforts will make a difference in cancer research.
Lisa and I greatly appreciate any donation, big or small. Thank you!

Our BCRF marathon team is diverse—we are breast cancer patients, 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.
