Supporters of Think Pink Rocks,
All of us at Think Pink Rocks hope that you and your loved ones are doing well.
As we all navigate through these unprecedented times and work together to recover from the global pandemic, we must remember that breast cancer does not take a break. In the United States, 1 in 8 women will develop breast cancer in their lifetime, with millions of women considered to be at increased risk for the disease. It is imperative that we fund research to develop new treatments to save lives!
With October being Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we are reaching out to all of our previous runners and supporters to check in and see how you are doing. We would love to hear from you. We are also asking for your continued support.
As many of you know, for nearly a decade Think Pink Rocks has partnered with the New York Road Runners and recruited runners to join our fundraising teams for the NYC Half Marathon and the TCS New York City Marathon. We have had great success with with these events enabling us to fund several breast cancer research projects.
With the cancellation of the 2020 NYC Half and the 2020 TCS New York City Marathon, two of our primary annual fundraising events, we have missed out on the opportunity to raise crucial funds to support cutting edge breast cancer research.
Please consider making a donation. Any amount will help!
Thank you as always for your support.
