I am excited to share with you that I am an official member of Team Sharsheret for the 2015 United Airlines NYC Half!
While many of you know that I love to run, this is my first half marathon and I thought that there was no better way to take on a challenge than to raise money for an incredible organization - Sharsheret, a national not-for-profit organization supporting young women and families, of all Jewish backgrounds, facing breast and ovarian cancer at every stage—before, during, and after diagnosis.
I have already begun to train for my race, and am inspired to undertake this rigorous challenge as I am doing it in memory of my mother, Linda Pulitzer z"l, who fought and lost a courageous battle against breast cancer.
It is particularly meaningful for me to race on behalf of Sharsheret because of the support they have provided me, my family and friends who have been touched by breast cancer and ovarian cancer. Sharsheret was the only organization that provided the vital culturally-relevant support they were desperately seeking. As I continually hear about the wonderful resource Sharsheret is for many friends and thousands of others locally and nationally, I wonder how I could do more. How can I make a difference? By taking on this personal challenge and joining with the other members of Team Sharsheret I have found my answer.
As a member of this incredible Team, I have pledged to raise funds (which I hope to greatly exceed!) in support of Sharsheret’s breast cancer and ovarian cancer programs and services. I am asking you to please support me in my athletic and fundraising efforts as I take on this challenge. All contributions are tax-deductible.
Thank you, in advance, for your support!
