BENEFITING: THINK PINK ROCKS
ORGANIZER: THINK PINK ROCKS
EVENT: NYC Half 2014
EVENT DATE: Mar 16, 2014
Dear friends and family,
On March 16th I will be running in the NYC Half Marathon in support of the friends and relatives who have been impacted by breast cancer. I started running two years ago and have completed several 3K and 5K races, and one half marathon. This will be my first fundraising race. My goal is to raise at least $1,000 for the valuable mission of Think Pink Rocks. I am hopeful that you will be able to support me as a part of the team.
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 NYC Half 2014 will benefit breast cancer research at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City. 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.
Thank you for your generosity,
