BENEFITING: THINK PINK ROCKS
ORGANIZER: THINK PINK ROCKS
EVENT: NYC Half 2013
EVENT DATE: Mar 17, 2013
I am running the NYC Half Marathon this year. For those of you who don't know, running is relatively new to me...started for the first time in my life in July of 2012. I've completed one Half Marathon (Big Sur Half Marathon at 2:07:56), and am looking forward to completing my second!
I've decided to join team Think Pink Rocks for this race. Think Pink Rocks is a non profit organization whose mission is to raise awarness about early detection of and genetic testing for breast cancer and to provide funding for screening, treatment, and research.
Cancer likely affects someone you know and love and I'd like to run this race in honor of or in memory of specific those people in my life or yours. Whether or not you donate, I'm asking you to send me specific names of people you love who are battling cancer, are cancer survivors, or who have lost their battle with cancer. I'm going to have a shirt made for the race with all of their names, and when my legs are tired, I know that thinking of them will motivate me to KEEP GOING!!!
Email me at Rachel.Casting@gmail.com with any names.
