BENEFITING: The Breast Cancer Research Foundation
EVENT DATE: Nov 04, 2012
I don't know a single person who can say breast cancer hasn't touched their life in some way, whether it be personally, a family member, or a close friend. Recently, this disease has touched me as well. Over the past year, I have whitnessed woman who are close to me struggle with all different aspects of this disease. However, through these difficult times, I have seen such tremendous examples of strength, courage and spirit that I cannot help but be inspired.
For this reason, I have decided to run the 2012 NYC Marathon in dedication to these women who have been running their own race against breast cancer. Karen & Gale, this race is for you! Mile after mile, I will be thinking of you, and I will remember the life lessons that you have have taught me; the power of a positive attitude, and the willingness to never give up.
Please help me, help others by sponsoring me during this race. I am asking each person to donate $26.2 dollars ($1 for every mile I run). The money I raise will benefit the Breast Cancer Research Foundation Inc.
