BENEFITING: The Breast Cancer Research Foundation
ORGANIZER: The Breast Cancer Research Foundation
I am very excited to fundraise for and run the NYC Marathon for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF) Team! I am running to honor my grandmother, who had breast cancer, and my mother who is currently undergoing treatment. I am also running for my uncle, cousin, and paternal grandmother who have endured other types of cancer. A good portion of my family is from/lives in New York so this is a fitting location for me to participate in an event to raise funds for the BCRF.
My goal is to raise as much as possible for this great organization, as 91% of their funds directly support cancer research and awareness programs and they have earned a 4 star rating on Charity Navigator, the highest rating a charity can earn. To learn more about their work please visit:
With your help, this experience will be so meaningful knowing that our efforts will make a difference in cancer research. I will be donating the first $50 toward my overall goal of $3000 to get the ball rolling.
Please consider donating as you never know when breast cancer could affect you or a loved one. The money put toward research today will help improve the chances of survival for so many tomorrow.
Any donation, big or small, is immensely appreciated.

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.
