Breast cancer sucks. And it is unfortunately far too prevalent in our society. Both my mom and my mother-in-law are fighting this disease, so I'm very proud to help Think Pink Rocks by raising money for their organization and running on their team for the 2012 New York City Marathon! I have committed to raise at least $2,500 for this more than worthy cause. All donations that you make here go directly to the organization and are tax deductible, so what are you waiting for? Won't you help fund an end to breast cancer? And while you're here, won't you check out my blog for me information about me, my family and this 26.2 mile challenge, and help spread the word? Thanks!
ABOUT THINK PINK ROCKS:
Think Pink Rocks is a non-profit organization whose mission is to raise awareness about early detection of and genetic testing for breast cancer and to provide funding for screening, treatment and research.
Did you know:
• A woman's risk of developing breast and ovarian cancer is greatly increased if she carries the BRCA1 or BRCA2 mutation (Breast Cancer gene mutation).
• Men with these mutations also have an increased risk of breast and prostate cancer. Our team will raise money and awareness for breast cancer research.
All money raised for Think Pink Rocks from the ING New York City Marathon 2012 will benefit breast cancer research at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York City. Some members of our team have a direct connection to breast cancer, but we also have many team members who are running simply because they want to support a great cause.
Think Pink Rocks is a 501 (c) (3) organization. Contributions to Think Pink Rocks are tax deductible to the extent allowable by law.
