BENEFITING: THINK PINK ROCKS
ORGANIZER: THINK PINK ROCKS
EVENT: NYC Half 2012
EVENT DATE: Mar 18, 2012
Hi Friends & Family!
On March 18th I'm going to be running the NYC Half Marathon with team Think Pink Rocks.
Think Pink Rocks is a non-profit organization whose mission is to raise breast cancer awareness and promote the importance of early detection and genetic testing as well as provide funding for screening, treatment and research.
All money raised for Think Pink Rocks from the NYC Half will benefit breast cancer research at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York City. Breast cancer has directly affected loved ones in my life as I'm sure it has yours so any contribution to this cause would be appreciated!
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.
