I am excited to share with you that I am an official member of Team Sharsheret for the 2020 United Airlines NYC Half! 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 creates a safe community for women facing breast cancer and ovarian cancer and their families at every stage of life and at every stage of cancer - from before diagnosis, during treatment and into the survivorship years.
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!
I am running in honor of my friend Sandy's niece who is currently battling breast cancer AND in honor of my friend Tammy Bryk - who a year ago could not walk and only could dream of doing a half marathon - and here we are!!
