THE STORY:

Hello all! My name is Leah Backo and I am fundraising for BRIGHT PINK for the 2017 Cleveland Marathon this year. 

Bright Pink is on a mission to save women's lives from breast and ovarian cancer by empowering them to live proactively at a young age. Team Bright Pink and the funds raised by our runners across the country are vital to ensure we can deliver life-saving education to women and medical professionals around the country. Learn more at BrightPink.org

My mother was diagnosed with Stage 4 Metastatic Breast Cancer 12+ years ago. She'll never be cured and she'll have the disease until the day she passes away. Breast Cancer awareness and prevention is something I am extremely passionate about and I chose to fundraise for Bright Pink this year because they advocate so fiercely for awareness and prevention in women my age. I'm a happy, healthy 25 year old who is determined not to get to cancer or to at least to everything in my power to catch it early. I hope that you will consider making a donation to this amazing organization so that other women can be empowered to do the same. For more info on my story and my marathon training, I encourage you to check out my blog: leahbacko.com/blog
