Friends & Family,
I AM RUNNING THE 2013 NYC MARATHON...provided mother nature doesn't unleash on us again!!!
I am SO excited to share that I will be running the ING NYC Marathon on November 3, 2013 in support of The Breast Cancer Research Foundation (http://www.bcrfcure.org/) and I am honored that I get to represent Team BCRF again this year.
I started organizing a team in NYC nine years ago to honor my mother, Lenore. She was diagnosed at the age of 43 when I was just 8. I watched her battle the disease during three separate cancer instances over the course of 5 years. She has now been cancer free for 20 years!!!! She is an inspiration to me and was a tower of strength during her long fight.
My fundraising goal for 2013 is a lofty $10,000. I hope that all of the passion I will pour into this training AGAIN will see the same support for the cause from all of you AGAIN.
Please know that your donation to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation will see more than 90 cents of each dollar go directly towards breast cancer research and awareness programs. It is THE top rated charity for Breast Cancer, receiving an A+ from the American Institute of Philanthropy and a 4-star rating from Charity Navigator. The organization's reach is global, with projects in 28 countries. To read more about their focus, click here: http://www.bcrfcure.org/about_impact.html
Over the past eight previous years, with all of your support and donations we raised nearly $45,000, which is truly AMAZING. And last year we raised almost $11,000 ($1,000 over the goal). Thank you all so very much for your continued support. I hope to see the momentum continue to exponentially grow in 2013!
There is absolutely no donation too little - just to know you are thinking of me and my efforts is what really matters to me - and I truly mean that! Your thoughtfulness and encouragement will not go unappreciated.
And don't forget to forward this to anyone who you think might want to support The BCRF and the cause!
