Those who know me best know that my training and fundraising for a marathon each year has become a part of who I am today and the reason is so much deeper than "keeping in good physical shape". It is the most impactful thing I have ever been a part of, and most importantly it is commitment and energy I (somehow) find each year that I want to devote to others. This year I am training for my fourth marathon - in New York City - on November 5th. Each marathon has been a very inspiring and extremely powerful experience, and I have been very fortunate to be able to turn that experience into something positive for others. If I can do anything to pay forward this inspiration, it is certainly to raise awareness of prevention and early-detection. To give so many women more time, more memories, more impact, more light to shine - that is why I run.
Encountering Endometriosis and being very active, running has changed the way I look at my life and my awareness of my own health. Bright Pink is saving women’s lives from breast and ovarian cancer by approaching the problem in a new way: teaching women how to make positive health behavior changes. This money isn’t for me. I’m asking you to donate to a cause much greater than me. I’m spreading the word to raise money for this organization and to join Bright Pink in their mission to educate women to move from awareness to action in hopes for future generations to live healthier lives.
My 2017 goal has shifted. My goal is no longer just to finish the 26.2 miles, but more so to raise awareness for this organization that inspires so many women to become proactive advocates for their health. Thank you for reading and thank you in advance for your donation and impact on this wonderful cause.
With love and many thanks,
