BENEFITING: The Breast Cancer Research Foundation
ORGANIZER: The Breast Cancer Research Foundation
It has been two years since I ran a marathon- I just have not been able to find the desire to train nor could I find a reason why I would want to run another one telling myself I was too old and there was really no purpose in challenging myself to see if I could run another 26.2 miles.
But I have now found that inspiration and will be running the NY Marathon in November as part of the BCRF team.
My niece, Rebecca Scheinkman, is a devoted activist for breast cancer research and a fundraiser for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. She is also an incredibly gifted writer and I would ask you to read her story in her own words which can be found at https://give.bcrfcure.org/rebeccascheinkman. You will easily see why I am so inspired by Rebecca and her fund raising efforts for the BCRF.
I received an e-mail from the New York Road Runners and discovered that BCRF organizes a team for the NY Marathon. And I found my inspiration.
Please help me raise money for BCRF. Your contributions and support will be in the forefront of my mind as I train. Knowing that our collective efforts will benefit such a wonderful organization as BCRF will make the miles go by easy and fast. I have run the NY Marathon twice before but this time will be the most rewarding as it is not for a personal goal but to support the important research efforts of so many dedicated people which help so many.
The Breast Cancer Research Foundation wrote - 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.
