In September of 2015, my Aunt K.C. was diagnosed with breast cancer. For the past two years, she has bravely fought through surgery and chemotherapy. My Aunt K.C. has always been there for me and I am honored to run my first marathon in her name. Please help me fundraise for breast cancer research, while supporting me as I run my first marathon for my Aunt. I will be running the 2017 NYC Marathon in November for Team Think Pink Rocks. 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.
