Since joining New York Road Runners, I’ve become increasingly inspired by other runners and teams who continue to push and challenge themselves physically and mentally.
When I learned about the opportunity to join a charity team and run in the NYC Half Marathon, I did some research and chose the Cancer Research Institute. Like many, varying cases of cancer run in my family and I saw no better fit than to join an organization supporting the advancement of cancer research.
I encourage you to support those with such passions and if you haven’t already, identify yours.
I appreciate all of the love and support--I’ll see you at the finish line!
About Cancer Research Institute:
The Cancer Research Institute is a charitable organization that raises funds for cancer immunology research. Virtually every major research institution in the world has scientists on staff who have been or are currently being funded by the Cancer Research Institute.
The institute supports and coordinates research that will yield an understanding of the immune system and its response to cancer, with the ultimate goal of developing immunological methods for the treatment, control, and prevention of the disease.
