BENEFITING: PROJECT PURPLE
ORGANIZER: PROJECT PURPLE
Thank you for visiting my page - I'm pledging to run the 2017 Rock 'n' Roll Brooklyn Half in honor of Project Purple!
12 months ago, I was overweight and not athletic at all. I was almost on the verge of becoming diabetic, so I made a promise to myself and my family that for my health, I'd lose weight. From that moment on, running became a hobby of mine, and I've lost 45+ pounds! A high point of my running career happened this January, when I finished my first half marathon in Disneyland.
The Rock 'n' Roll Brooklyn Half Marathon will be my 7th offical half marathon for this year, and because 7 is one of my lucky numbers, I decided to run this race for charity, and I chose Project Purple because of the work they do with pancreatic cancer. 3 of my idols (Steve Jobs, Sally Ride, and Alan Rickman), who paved the way for others to succeed, all passed away from this disease. I'd like to raise money for this organization so they can keep researching for a cure for the disease.
Can we imagine a world without pancreatic cancer? With your help, I know we can one day very soon!
