BENEFITING: THINK PINK ROCKS
ORGANIZER: THINK PINK ROCKS
< My Aunt Janett was only 34 years old when she was diagnosed with breast cancer. I want to raise awareness of this disease to women of all ages. I am honored ro raise money for this very personal cause. I can't imagine a better way to honor my aunt: running in the NYC Marathon for her and women everywhere who have fought and are fighting this terrible disease! p>THINK PINK ROCKS wrote -
We are a non-profit organization whose mission is to raise awareness about early detection of and genetic testing for breast cancer and to provide fundinis g 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.
