THE STORY:

My friend,

As you may have recently heard, my mother  Sharon Ockler, was diagnosed with Breast cancer. I am so thankful the doctor's found it quickly. She had surgery two weeks ago, and I am happy to announce the doctor's are very optimistic about a full recovery! 

In honor of my mother, I will be running in the United Airlines NYC Half marathon in March. I'm attempting to raise $2,000 to combat breast cancer and with yours and THINK PINK ROCKS help, we can do our part to help to fund testing and early detection of breast cancer. 

Thank you so much for your time, and help.

- Steve Ockler ( a very happy son )

 

 

THINK PINK ROCKS wrote -

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.

The money raised for Think Pink Rocks from the NYC Half 2015 will benefit breast cancer research at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, where Think Pink Rocks has establshed a dedicated breast cancer research fund, as well as at the Breast Oncology Center at the University of Michigan, in addiiton to providing funding for treatment.

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.

Please note - we encourage everyone to join our fundraising team for this great cause. Howevering, joining our fundraising team does not provide you a spot in the NYC Half 2016 unless you have corresponded with and received confirmation directly from our team captain.  For more information on how to join our team for the race, please email rich at rich@thinkpinkrocks.com. Thanks for your support!
