BENEFITING: THINK PINK ROCKS
ORGANIZER: THINK PINK ROCKS
EVENT: NYC Half 2013
EVENT DATE: Mar 17, 2013
To my dear friends and family:
On Sunday, March 16th I will be running in the NYC Half Marathon to honor the wife of a very good friend who was recently diagnosed with cancer. All of us have been affected in some way by this insidious disease and events such as this are vital in continuing to raise awareness and the necessary funding to find a cure. Please consider helping me surpass my goal of $1600 in committed pledges by donating whatever you can to help win this fight. And, if it's not too much, I'd love it if you could mark your calendar and take a moment on 16th to send strength to those who live with courage and resilience not only on race day but each day of their journey through initial diagnosis on into and through remission.

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.
