The women of Zeta Tau Alpha hold an annual 5K in October to raise money for breast cancer education and awareness. Over the last 14 years, we have raised over $160,000 for breast cancer education and awareness. This year we hope to raise over $30,000. You can register for our 5K at: http://zta5k.racesonline.com/

One of the reasons I chose to join Zeta Tau Alpha was because I was touched by the work the women of ZTA do to raise money for breast cancer education and awareness. As you may or may not know, 1 in 8 women will be affected by breast cancer in their lifetime. Many of you reading this probably know someone who has breast cancer or is a breast cancer survivor. You may even be one yourself. This cause is important to me because it hits close to home; two women in my family are breast cancer survivors, and they are among the 2.8 million other strong women (and men) in the United States who have also battled this disease. I am inspired every day by these women in my life for their strength, and humbled to have had the chance to do something to help raise money for this cause in the hopes that one day I won't have to look around a room of other women with the unsettling thought that at least a handful of them will deal with this disease first-hand in their lifetime. I would be very grateful if you joined me in raising money for our philanthropy to help us continue to make a difference. Every $1 counts! Thank you for reading my story and for donating!
