Please, if you can spare a few coins or even just a dollar we would be thankful to you and the heavens! ....
Thanks again for all of the contributions thus far :*
here is my tory below..
Over the past few months i've known family members, friends, customers, and clients who have dealt with breast and ovarian cancer. Through their stories of survival and recovery i've decided to push myself wayyy beyond what is comfortable for me, in honor of an amazing organization that has helped all these people who I love and care for. Sooooooooooo now....
I am an official member of Team Sharsheret for the2019 TCS New York City Marathon!
WHAT AM I THINKING?!?!!? (So scared, nervous, excited, NERVOUS, thrilled and more NERVOUS)
I have already begun to train for my race, and am inspired to undertake this rigorous challenge as I am doing it in support of an amazing organization - Sharsheret, a national not-for-profit organization supporting young women and families, of all Jewish backgrounds, facing breast and ovarian cancer at every stage—before, during, and after diagnosis.
It is particularly meaningful for me to race on behalf of Sharsheret because of the support they have provided to friends who were touched by breast cancer and ovarian cancer. Sharsheret was the only organization that provided the vital culturally-relevant support they were desperately seeking. As I continually hear about the wonderful resource Sharsheret is for many friends and thousands of others locally and nationally, I wonder how I could do more. How can I make a difference? By taking on this personal challenge and joining with the other members of Team Sharsheret I have found my answer.
As a member of this incredible Team, I have pledged to raise funds (which I hope to greatly exceed!) in support of Sharsheret’s breast cancer and ovarian cancer programs and services. I am asking you to please support me in my athletic and fundraising efforts as I take on this challenge. All contributions are tax-deductible.
Thank you, in advance, for your support!
