BENEFITING: THINK PINK ROCKS
ORGANIZER: THINK PINK ROCKS
EVENT: NYC Half 2012
EVENT DATE: Mar 18, 2012
Family and Friends,
My sister and I will be running the 2012 New York City Half Marathon on March 18th with Team Think Pink Rocks. Think Pink Rocks is a non-profit organization whose mission is to raise awareness about early detection of breast cancer and to provide funding for screening, treatment, and research.
All of the money raised on behalf of Team Think Pink Rocks will benefit breast cancer research at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York City, where Think Pink Rocks has established a dedicated breast cancer research fund.
Two of our close family friends are currently battling breast cancer, which is why we feel particularly strongly about this cause.
I have committed to raising a minimum of $1,000 for Team Think Pink Rocks. Any contribution would bring me one step closer to reaching my fundraising goal, and would be greatly appreciated.

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.
