Alessia Writes -
I raise money for this charity every year to run the NYC Half Marathon. My nonna in Italy is a breast cancer survivor. She's 93 and is and incredible and beautiful woman. She is my inspiration to always give and do my best. This is an amazing race - where NY comes out to celebrate and cheer each other on. Support me in running this race by donating to this cause...and HELP SAVE THE BOOBIES!!
Thank you to everyone!! Now here are some facts about the organization and breast cancer...

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 2013 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.
