Team NYAWC NYC Marathon 2012

THE STORY:

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  Most of you probably don't know I went through surgery, chemo and radiation for a Stage I tumor found in my left breast three years ago.  I am extremely fortunate to be more or less back to normal with the support of family and friends.  

So running this Marathon is a big deal to me, if only to show that I can do it.

It's been nine years since I ran my last race. Two kids later and 15 lbs heavier, I'm trying to get back in shape, and with a good cause to motivate me.  I was sidelined by bursitis and sciatica around my left hip for several weeks, but I am back in the game, with one month left to train. I know I can do this with your help.

I've known NYAWC for years - they help women (and their children) recover from domestic violence and human trafficking. As the largest pan-Asian agency in the US serving domestic violence and human trafficking survivors, they provide support services in over 12 languages.  NYAWC shelters women from harm, teaches practical skills and gives back their self-respect and hope for the future.

Help me raise another $1,500 for NYAWC by contributing any amount and cheer our team on Nov. 4.

THANKS!!
 

PS If you'd rather write a check directly to the charity, just let me know and I'll give you the info.
