THE STORY:

It's my honor to run alongside my dear friend Jared Haftel in the San Francisco Half Marathon on October 15th, in support of his efforts to raise money for the Breast Cancer Emergency Fund (BCEF).

I've copied his message below because I think it was so beautifully written, and needs to be shared.

Nearly all of us have dealt with the pain and loss that breast cancer can  bring.  No one should have those circumstances compounded by poverty, rending treatment impossible.  BCEF works towards that goal.

Regardless of if you're able to lend a hand, thank you so much for your time in  reading this message and for your wonderful support you've given me  throughout the years.  I am incredibly grateful to share the love of so many beloved family members and friends.

If you'd like to donate towards our efforts and support the cause, please click this link:

---------- Forwarded message ----------
From: Jared Haftel
Subject: Request for your support

I'm  writing to request your support in raising money for the Breast Cancer  Emergency Fund (BCEF).  I'm running the SF Half Marathon on October 15th, and trying to raise $1k+ to support BCEF as part of my run.


BCEF  provides emergency financial assistance to low income women in the Bay  Area with breast cancer.  These women are sick and poor, and we help  them with very basic needs -- paying rent so they don't get evicted,  paying the energy bill so they can keep the lights on, and paying for  the bus to the clinic so they can get treatment.  

As  most of you know, I lost my mother to breast cancer five and a half  years ago.  The disease took a horrible toll on my family and everyone  who loved her, and it's hard to think of what our experience would have  been like if we couldn't afford basic needs on top of that pain.

Please find more detail on BCEF here: http://bcef.org/

Yours,
Jared



PS  - If you prefer to support my fellow runners (cc'ed above), that works  just as well!  Special thank you to Jessie, Miles, Ian and Rock for  running with me and helping me raise money for BCEF!
