For the last couple of years, I have trained and participated in the Novo Nordisk New Jersey Marathon race in Long Branch to support a wonderful charity called Breast Intentions. This year through Breast Intentions, I am once again running to make a difference in the lives of women and their families who are battling breast cancer.
For those of you who do not know me that well, breast cancer is a topic that is close to me. On March 11, 2005, my best friend’s mother passed away due to a rare form of breast cancer. In October 2006, my own mother was diagnosed with breast cancer. In 2007, she had a double mastectomy and thankfully she has been cancer free ever since. I am thankful that my mom is a breast cancer survivor, but my heart still goes out to all of those other women and men who have lost the battle to breast cancer—this is why I run for such a great organization.
This year it is my goal to raise $500+ for Breast Intentions. I am so excited to be participating in this event again and I am striving to do my best when I run the NJ Long Branch half marathon race. Please help us make a real difference in the lives of women and their families who are battling breast cancer and who desperately need our help. Any donation you can give to is greatly appreciated.
