EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
For those of you who haven't heard, I'm running the NYC Marathon this year! I've been wanting to do this for quite some time and finally feel brave enough to take on the feat. Additionally, I am running for a wonderful organization called Project Purple, a non-profit org created to raise awareness on pancreatic cancer, support patients and families affected by the disease, and fund research efforts to defeat it. At the end of last year, my cousin was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and is currently undergoing treatment. He too has chosen to run the race this year!

The NYC Marathon experience is one of the best out there. From the challenge of 26.2 miles, to the millions of supporters shouting your name, to shutting down the streets of New York City: TCS NYC Marathon is an unforgetable, rewarding race. Of all the races we run each year, this is our biggest and most anticipated. Each Project Purple team has been larger and more successful than the last. Join this amazing team and let's keep growing, running, fundraising, and beating pancreatic cancer!
