ORGANIZER: THINK PINK ROCKS
EVENT: NYC Half 2013
EVENT DATE: Mar 17, 2013
Thanks for visiting my fundraising page! It is with a ton of enthusiasm that I joined this team and will be running this race to help raise money to find a cure for breast cancer. Right before Christmas, I found out that 2 very strong women I know got diagnosed with breast cancer. Before this I have never known anyone personally with breast cancer. Now I know two and I cannot stop thinking about what this means for them and their families and what I can do to help them. Heather is a strong, young, hard working friend, wife, sister, daughter, and step mother. She is one of the nicest people I know. AnnMarie, a friend from college, also a strong, young, hard working friend, wife, sister, daughter, and mother of 2 little kids. She is always there when you need her and also one of the nicest people I know. I am thankful for anything you can donate at this time. If there is someone, a loved one, anyone that you would like me to run for as well, I will put their name on my shirt and run for them also. Please help me join the fight against breast cancer and show support for these 2 awesome women!

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.
