THE STORY:

Hey Guys,

On March 18, 2012,  I will be running with 17,000 people in the NYC Half Marathon.  I wanted to run for a reason and so I joined the "Think Pink Rocks" Team, a very worthwhile cause, raising money for breast cancer research.

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 and hope to raise that if not more. I have organised a quiz night on February 1st that I am hoping will raise the majority of the funds however all donations are welcome.  I would greatly appreciate your support in any way. 

Thank you,
Nicky :-)

 

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 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.

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 2012 UNLESS YOU HAVE CORRESPONDED WITH AND RECEIVED CONFIRMATION DIRECTLY FROM OUR TEAM CAPTAIN. FOR MORE INFORMATION ON HOW TO JOIN OUR TEAM FOR THE RACE, PLEASE EMAIL RICH, OUR TEAM CAPTAIN AT RICHRSL@YAHOO.COM.
