Hi friends!! I’m running my second Boston Athletic Association Half Marathon this October. Once again, I am running to honor the memory of my dear friend and second mother, Mercedes Castillo, who passed away in January, 2017, after bravely battling Ovarian cancer for so many years. In her honor I will be raising money for the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition, an organization that provides education, support and research related to this disease, which is estimated to develop in 1 out of 75 women in their lifetime. Please consider donating to this important cause and to supporting my efforts.
