Dear Friends and Family,
My dad (Jeff) and I are excited to share with you that we are finally official members of Team Sharsheret for the 2016 UA New York City Half-Marathon! How about that??!
We have already begun to train for our race. We are inspired to undertake this rigorous challenge, a we are doing it in support of an amazing 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.
It is particularly meaningful for us to race on behalf of Sharsheret because of the support they have provided to friends who were touched by breast cancer and ovarian cancer. Sharsheret was the only organization that provided the vital culturally-relevant support they were desperately seeking. Many of us hear about the wonderful resource Sharsheret is for many friends and thousands of others locally and nationally. We want to do more. By taking on this personal challenge and joining with the other members of Team Sharsheret, we found our answer.
As members of this incredible Team, we have pledged to raise funds (which we hope to greatly exceed!) in support of Sharsheret’s breast cancer and ovarian cancer programs and services. We ask you to please support us in our athletic and fundraising efforts as we take on this challenge. All contributions are tax-deductible.
Thank you, in advance, for your support!
