BENEFITING: PROJECT PURPLE
ORGANIZER: PROJECT PURPLE
EVENT DATE: Mar 20, 2016
Hello friends and family. I've been running 5ks, 10ks and half marathons for a while now, but never have I took the initiative to do so for a charitable cause.
Recently my sister-in-law's father passed away after a long, hard battle with pancreatic cancer. In support of her family, in memory of her father and in solidarity with those suffering from this common form of cancer, I have decided to run the NYC Half Marthon with Project Purple.
Project Purple provides financial support to patients undergoing treatment and their families. They also provide scientific research grants and scholarships to students whose lives have been touched by pancreatic cancer. For more information, visit run4projectpurple.org.
Please consider supporting me, my family and Project Purple by giving a donation today.
