My mother passed away in 2017 after a courageous 8 1/2 year battle with Ovarian Cancer. On Sunday, March 17th, I will be running in the NYC Half Marathon for T.E.A.L®, an organizaton dedicated to raising awareness around Ovarian Cancer. As part of this team I have set a goal to raise $1,000 for which I am asking anyone who wishes to do so, no matter what amount, to please help. Should you not be in a position to donate at this time, I urge you to still read a little bit about the foundation below and visit their website to learn all the great things they are doing. Thank you to everyone in advance and good luck to all of my teammates running for this important cause in March as we work to create awareness around this terrible disease.
