I'm running the TCS NYC marathon for the 4th time (6th marathon) with the 1st time fund raising. This is something I've been talking about doing for years, however, I haven't found the right Breast Cancer charity it raise for.
Finding a cure for Breast Cancer is important to me because breast cancer runs on both sides of my family. When I was 16 my mom, Sharon, battled this horrible disease and I never met my paternal grandmother, Virginia, who passed too early in life.
In 2010, my mom calls me and asked me if I want to run the Breast Cancer half marathon in Jacksonville, FL with her. I thought she was crazy, but hey, if at 58 years old she can do it, why can't I. That was start of my love for running. A short year later I ran the Donna 26.2 in February and the ING NYC marathon in November. It's been a goal to continue to run a marathon a year since then.
I'm very excited and honored I get to run this marathon for a cause that's very important to me. I'm dedicating this marathon to my mom, grandma, and all women that have battled this crazy disease. Remember any amount helps to find a cure! SAVE THE TATAS!!!!
