EVENT DATE: Nov 05, 2017
DAYS TO GO: 137
On November 5th I will be running my 5th marathon, NYC Marathon.
I'm so honored to be running through the streets of New York for Think Pink Rocks and raising money for a charity close to my heart.
Breast cancer has affected many of my girlfriends in their 40's, mothers of my girlfriends and the list goes on.
Please consider donating to a great cause and helping to find a cure for this horrible disease.
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 2017 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.
