BENEFITING: Remember Betty Foundation
EVENT DATE: Aug 13, 2016
On August 13, Remember Betty NYC will transform into “Team Betty Extreme” as we conquer obstacles at the City Challenge Race on Randall's Island in honor of women and their families battling breast cancer.
Founded by Danny Wood of New Kids On The Block in memory of his mother, Betty, the mission of Remember Betty is to help minimize the financial burden associated with breast cancer for patients and survivors by providing direct financial support to them so that they can focus on recovery and quality of life.
Our goal is to fill the gap left by the major breast cancer charities. Research and awareness are great, but they do no good if a patient can't afford the treatments, or if they have to choose between paying for treatment or paying the electricity bill, buying groceries, or rent.
