BENEFITING: PROJECT PURPLE
ORGANIZER: PROJECT PURPLE
EVENT DATE: Nov 03, 2013
Earlier this year I started thinking about my goals for this year especially with my 50th birthday coming up in November. One activity I have considered in the past is running the NYC Marathon in November. This marathon is popular and difficult to win a lottery position to participate. So I began researching charity fundraisers to receive an automatic entry to the marathon.
God works in mysterious ways. The first fundraider I found was Project Purple. This is a great organization that raises awareness and funds towards finding a cure for Pancreatic Cancer. This immediately caught my attention as Both of my Grandmothers died of this terrible disease. Pancreatic Cancer is the 4th largest killer of all cancers and the least funded of the top 10 cancer killers today.
So I need your help! Please consider donating to this wonderful organization. Since the marathon is on Nov 3 and my 50th b-day is Nov 4, I am suggesting a donation of $50. But I am thrilled for any amount that you contribute. Every dollar goes to a cause that we need to help and I personally have a stake in this with my family history.
Thanks so much for your consideration and support!!!
Project Purple has a mission of Running To Beat Pancreatic Cancer !
