2020, the year "Brittany Runs a Marathon". After completing my 5th half marathon in September, I'm ready for a new challenge! I started running about 12 years ago for the numerous health benefits but quickly realized running was doing so much more for me mentally. Running is a huge part of my life and I hope it continues to be for many years to come.
I'm excited to be running the 2020 Bank of America Chicago Marathon with Project Purple! Project Purple has a mission of a world without pancreatic cancer. Pancreatic cancer will become the #2 killer of all major cancers in the USA by 2020 and we need your help to fund more research and help more families fighting.
Project Purple is close to my heart as my grandma is currently fighting her own battle of pancreatic cancer. I'm beyond thankful for all the new treatment plans that have worked for her. Without organizations like Project Purple, new treatment plans wouldn't be possible.
Please consider donating to this great organization not only so I can meet my goal but more importantly to end pancreatic cancer!
