THE STORY:

Last year, I ran my first half marathon at the NYC Half. I was so proud that I was able to prove to myself that I can, in fact, be a long distance runner. This year, I'm fortunate enough to be racing again. But this time I'm running not so much for myself, but for all the men and women who are affected by cancers of the breast, ovaries and prostate. Through years of research and development, we have developed ways to attack these terrible diseases and the survival rate has significantly improved. But there's still a lot of work to be done. So this year, I run for all those who won't get a second chance.

If you can help and donate whatever you can, you'll be doing everyone a world of good. Thanks!

 

THINK PINK ROCKS wrote -

We are 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 New York City Half-Marathon 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.

PLEASE NOTE - WE ENCOURAGE EVERYONE TO JOIN OUR FUNDRAISING TEAM FOR THIS GREAT CAUSE. HOWEVER, JOINING OUR FUNDRAISING TEAM DOES NOT PROVIDE YOU A SPOT IN THE NYC HALF-MARATHON UNLESS YOU HAVE CORRESPONDED WITH AND RECEIVED CONFIRMATION DIRECTLY FROM RICH OR STEPHANIE AT THINK PINK ROCKS.
