THE STORY:

Welcome friends, family, and fans of Rachel Banov Gould.

This is our sixth year taking part in the National Race to End Women’s Cancer. We do so to honor Rachel, and all the other women -- and families -- who have been affected by gynecologic cancers.

In February of 2011, Rachel was diagnosed with cervical cancer. During her treatment, she was inspired to participate in the race and support the Foundation for Women's Cancer, which supports research, awareness, and education of all gynecologic cancers. In our first year of taking part in the race, Rachel’s team, named for her blog of the same name, raised thousands of dollars. Just as important, Rachel felt a sense of hope as so many loved ones came together that day to support her. Rachel died March 28, 2012, at the age of 31, but we continue to pay tribute to her by racing and walking in this event every year.

We also seek to educate others, as Rachel would do, about these cancers. Earlier this year, Rachel’s sister, Jessica, was interviewed by Redbook magazine. The article truly captured Rachel’s spirit and her hope of making others aware of the lack of funding for these types of cancers. Redbook magazine also raised money for the Foundation through promoting the story. You can find the article here: http://www.redbookmag.com/body/health-fitness/a42578/female-cancers/

Each year, our group has grown with more people from all parts of our lives, from Rachel’s friends and coworkers to those we’ve met along the way. We’re grateful to have you join us each year and wear the purple Team Seriously? T-shirts. Rachel loved bringing people together. More importantly, we’ve collectively raised almost $47,000 through our race participation, plus an additional $11,000 in donations, for the Foundation. Your incredible generosity enabled the Foundation to publish new cervical cancer education brochures in 2013 with Rachel’s name on them. It’s an everlasting tribute to Rachel.

Last year, a significant portion of our donations came from Rachel’s friend Michele, who swam around Manhattan (28.5 miles in 8 hours!) for the Manhattan Island Marathon Swim (MIMS). She asked her supporters to donate to our team, giving Team Seriously a pre-race boost and helping us become one of the top fundraisers of the entire event. We’re so proud of what she did!

We also thank our “satellite teams” of supporters, who over the years have taken their own walks and runs on race day, including in Orlando, Miami, New York, Connecticut, Philadelphia, Boston, Charleston and Los Angeles. If you can’t make it to DC on race day, we encourage you to walk or run on your own. You’re all part of Team Seriously.

Finally, if you’re new to the race, check out this 2014 video (https://youtu.be/RrLKFcvWTXQ)  from Cervivor, an organization that raises awareness of cervical cancer. Our team is featured at 2:06. Thanks to Tamika Felder and her Cervivor organization for including us in this.

Thank you for joining us!
