BENEFITING: THINK PINK ROCKS
ORGANIZER: THINK PINK ROCKS
EVENT: NYC Half 2012
EVENT DATE: Mar 18, 2012
Friends & Family,
On March 18, 2012, my sister Amy, husband Dave, and I will be running with thousands of others in the NYC Half Marathon. We are running on behalf of the Team "Think Pink Rocks" in order to raise money for breast cancer research at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center.
Breast cancer is a disease that directly affects all of us. Unfortunately, there are too many people I know who have had a personal experience with breast cancer. We are running this race for all of them.
I've pledged to raise at least $1,000 before race day. I would greatly appreciate your support in any way. All donations are accepted no matter how many zeros are at the end.

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.
