I'M RUNNING MY FIRST MARATHON!!
I'm super excited to finally get a chance to run the NYC Marathon, it's been a dream of mine for years. And on top of that I get to raise money for a great charity, BRIGHT PINK!
Their objective is clear: Bright Pink is on a mission to save women’s lives from breast and ovarian cancer by empowering them to live proactively at a young age. It is their goal to teach young women about breast and ovarian health and provide them with the tools needed to assess their risk levels to aid in early detection.
Your donation to my fundraising page will go toward the many programs they provide for young women:
- Educational Workshops put on in communities around the country
- Programs for Medical Professionals
- Outreach and Support groups for women with high-risk factors
- One-on-One peer support programs
1 in 8 women will develop breast cancer in her life. Please check out their webpage today and use their tools to assess your personal risk and learn more information about their programs!
You can also text PINK to 59227 to get a reminder once a month to complete your own self breast exam.
Thank you so much for donating, every little bit helps! I'll share more info soon about my marathon training. November 1st 2015 will be the big day!!!
