I'm 2 weeks away from running the NYC Marathon and $300 shy of my $3000 fundraising goal to raise money for Think Pink Rocks - Please sponsor me! Any amount for this great cause is really appreciated. Thank you in advance for any support!
A lot of us have been affected in one way or another by cancer, either directly or somewhere within our families. When my Mum was only 49 she passed away after battling breast cancer. Over 20 years later I still see this disease deeply impacting my friends, friends' parents and even friends' children.
So I am running the TCS New York City Marathon on November 5th and am trying to raise $3,000 for Think Pink Rocks, a Charity which raises money for two of the world's leading Cancer Research Institutions, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York and the Breast Oncology Center at the University of Michigan.
Any sponsorship small or large would be much appreciated! Thank you for your support!
*Here is a little more information about the Charity I'm running for...
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 2016 TCS New York City Marathon will benefit breast cancer research at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City and the Breast Oncology Center at the University of Michigan. Some members of our team have a direct connection to breast cancer, but we also have many team members who are running or walking 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 deductable to the extent allowable by law.
