THE STORY:

Hi Everyone!

This year, I made a personal goal to run all six New York City half marathons. For the biggest race – the New York City Half Marathon - I thought it would be a wonderful opportunity to raise money and awareness for breast cancer research and preventative treatment. I am running this race in honor and celebration of Grandma Boo, Aunt Sylvia and Aunt Julie - all breast cancer survivors.

If you are living in NYC, or are planning to visit soon, please come and watch me cross the finish line on March 18th!!

 

I am running with THINK PINK ROCKS - 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.

Think Pink Rocks is a 501 (c) (3) organization. Contributions to Think Pink Rocks are tax deductable to the extent allowable by law.
