BENEFITING: PROJECT PURPLE
ORGANIZER: PROJECT PURPLE
EVENT DATE: Nov 03, 2013
I will be running the NYC Marathon on November 3rd. I don't believe I have ever run further than 6 miles, so it should be an exciting challenge.
I am running in honor of my grandfather Joel Weisman, who died of pancreatic cancer in 1984 at just 58 years old, and in support of Project Purple.
Project Purple's mission is to raise awareness and funds towards a cure for pancreatic cancer. Pancreatic cancer is the 4th largest killer of all cancer killers and the least funded of the top 10 cancers. It is also the only cancer in the top 10 killer with a single digit survival rate after 5 years.
With your help and encouragement I will raise at least $4,000, and complete 26.2 miles on November 3rd.
Thank you in advance for any support you can offer.
