Hello friends and family! I'm excited to be running the 2020 NYC United Airlines Half Marathon with Team Project Purple, a non-profit organization that helps raise awareness and funds towards a cure for pancreatic cancer.
To date, Project Purple has funded more than $1 million in research targeted directly at ending pancreatic cancer, and awarded hundreds of thousands of dollars to some of the best medical centers and hospitals in the field of pancreatic cancer research. Project Purple also provides assistance to families financially impacted by pancreatic cancer.
Statistics aside, pancreatic cancer research is really important to my family as we've had multiple family members diagnosed, and it would mean the world to me if you’d consider donating to help me reach my fundraising goal of $1,000 (UPDATE 11/14: goal is now $2,000!) I’m running each mile in honor of my cousin Shelly, one of the most compassionate and selfless people I’ve ever known, who lived her life for other people. If you’d like to make a donation in honor of a loved one affected by cancer, I’d be so grateful.
Thank you for reading!
