For me, what started simply as a conversation with a colleague slowly evolved into a challenge, not only run the New York City Marathon, but to help fund raise and spread awareness about an incredible cause and wonderful organization. Breast cancer affects 1 in 8 women and is the most commonly diagnosed cancer among females. Having close ties to friends and family who have battled and continue to battle breast cancer, I want to make sure my contributions not only go towards helping them, but supporting the thousands of women affected each year.
I will be running the 2018 TCS New York City Marathon with The Pink Agenda, an organization committed to raising money for breast cancer research and care, as well as awareness of the disease among young professionals. The Pink Agenda has grown since 2007, engaging people from coast to coast who are all eager to give their time to support a cause that has now become their crusade. To date, The Pink Agenda has contributed two million dollars to fund groundbreaking research and care, necessary to improve the odds of survival.
Over 3.3 million breast cancer survivors are alive today in the United States and I am committed to helping that number grow by raising awareness and supporting organizations like The Pink Agenda, whose mission is to engage today’s generation to find tomorrow’s cure.
Together, we can support their ongoing efforts. Please join me as I invest in raising awareness and research by donating The Pink Agenda.
Thank you for your contribution and generosity.
