EVENT: Pittsburgh Marathon 2017
EVENT DATE: May 07, 2017
Hi all! Thanks for checking out my crowdrise fundraising page! This year I will be running in my third half marathon- but my first ever Pittsburgh Half.
Breast Cancer is something that has been near and dear to my heart since becoming a sister of Zeta Tau Alpha in 2013. With our philanthropy being Breast Cancer Education & Awareness, my sisters and I across the nation worked toward gaining a better understanding of the disease as well as those affected and fundraising with the help of the National Football League, the American Cancer Society and Bright Pink.
In 2015, Breast Cancer directly struck my family after my mom was diagnosed. One surgery and 5 weeks of radiation later, she has now been in remission for nearly a year and a half. Not everyone is this lucky. Breast Cancer is the leading cause of cancer death in women ages 15 to 54. For those who have been affected as well as those who will be affected in the future, please donate! My goal is to raise $350...every donation big or small helps!
