Update on our fundraising campaign
July 19, 2017
We are 3 Israeli women that in the last few years develop a passion for long distance runs and we have a dream to celebrate our 50th birthdays by running the New York City marathon. New York, is a city we love and its marathon is well known for being a celebration of fitness, wellbeing and proactive living. Like many others, we have friends, family members and colleagues that were and are straggling with breast cancer and we would like to help them and contribute, as much as possible, to preventing additional women go through that battle. Therefore, we decide to “run for it”. We are going to dedicate our marathon run, and our passion, for a good cause. We will run for the THINK PINK ROCK organization which operates worldwide, to raise awareness for early detection of, and genetic testing for breast cancer and to provide funding for medical & genetical research. We appeal to you to support the idea and help us with your contribution, to enable us to participate in the New York Marathon for Think Pink Rocks, for medical research and especially for millions of women around the world, who found themselves hitting the wall, in the midst of the race of life.
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.
