BENEFITING: Find the Cause Breast Cancer Foundation
EVENT DATE: Apr 17, 2017
Dear friends and family,
This is a big year for me. I am taking on the challenge of running my first marathon. I’m honored to run for an important cause: Preventing breast cancer. Who doesn't know someone affected by this terrible disease?
Art beCause It’s mission is to fund scientific research on the environmental causes of breast cancer and to educate the public on prevention. Why the Marathon? I am passionate about running and have always dreamed of running the boston marathon. for me, running allows me to unwind and reflect on myself while enjoying personal time in the outdoors. Running is a major part of my ongoing process of not letting past traumatic experiences take away from me. Running helps me stay healthy while reaching the goals I have set for myself.
My aim is simple...
I want to reach the finish line as happy and healthy as possible. Although this is my first marathon, I know I will cross the finish line. I'm ready mentally but will be training on the physical part in the coming months. I'm looking forward to it!
What I hope for...
I truly hope that my training and run, during one of the most challenging times in my life, will inspire and motivate others. Anything is possible when you have the right attitude and the support of others...
IN THE COMING MONTHS, I WILL BE ASKING FOR YOUR SUPPORT FOR MY RUN. THANK YOU IN ADVANCE!
