Dear Family and Friends,
I would be honored if you would support (small or large, any contribution would be greatly appreciated!) me and my charity team, Think Pink Rocks, as I tackle my first half marathon - the 2012 NYC Half Marathon. I am so excited to be running for such a great cause and am counting down the days until March 18th! I am humbled to represent a charity that has such a wonderful impact on all ages, races, and genders and I hope you join me on my 13.1 mile journey!
I've included information below about Think Pink Rocks and the organization's mission.

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 NYC Half 2012 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.
