I always tried to do something small each year for breast cancer awareness; wearing pink ties to work and donating money. However, this year I found out one of my family members has breast cancer. She is currently undergoing chemo treatments and has radiation scheduled for the fall. This year I wanted to do something more than just wear a pink tie. I am going to be running the 5k in Lehigh Valley to help raise money for women's cancers in my local area.
I want to do this for my family member. I want her to know that someone is thinking of her during this process. I'm not asking for a lot of donations. I know that there are so many others out there with family members with cancer. All I'm asking is that you do something this October to help raise awareness and show support. Donate to my race. Donate to another's fundraiser. Wear pink. Do something to show your love and support.
The Women's 5K Classic is an "all volunteer" organization which raises money for Breast & Female Cancers. The W5K mission is to promote women's fitness, to support female cancer survivors, and to fund cancer research and education programs within the Greater Lehigh Valley.
