BENEFITING: RECOVERY ON WATER INC
EVENT DATE: Oct 13, 2013
When my friend Kristen Price said she wanted to run 26 miles by the age of 26, the Chicago Marathon became a realistic, albeit formidable, challenge for me. What pushed me to sign up for this insane number of miles was the work of Recovery on Water. This organization works to empower women either in treatment, or have completed treatment, for breast cancer, and to get them rowing on the rivers of Cook County. Why? Recovery on Water is rooted in research that exercise can reduce cancer recurrence by 50%.
While I believe this marathon will be beneficial to my health, I am far more excited to fundraise for Recovery on Water, a group that creates a community of support, health and recovery for women affected by breast cancer.
