NEW YORK CITY MARATHON!!!
March 28, 2016
BENEFITING: PROJECT PURPLE
ORGANIZER: PROJECT PURPLE
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
This year I will run my 3rd marathon. Rather than Boston, I will overtake the 5 boroughs of New York City. The New York City Marathon is the largest marathon in the world with over 50,000 runners. Along with the Boston and Chicago Marathon, it is among the pre-eminent long-distance annual running events in the United States.
Despite my change in marathons, the cause that I run for has not. Once again I will run for Project Purple whose mission is to raise awareness and funding to help defeat pancreatic cancer. As most of you know I lost my mother to this horrible disease in 2011 so I am passionate to help others fighting pancreatic cancer.
I have been actively involved assisting Project Purple meet their mission for several years now. I do so by running road races and raising funds that allows Project Purple to provide financial support to pancreatic cancers patients. My running also allows Project Purple to help patients find the best hospitals and trials that work for them.
I am grateful for the support you have shown me in the past and I humbly ask for your support again. My goal is to raise $5,000 by race day. Please consider my endeavor as you decide on your charitable contributions. Thank you.
