BENEFITING: PROJECT PURPLE
ORGANIZER: PROJECT PURPLE
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
I am very excited to be running my first marathon with Project Purple to honor Anna Przybylska, a young Polish actress who died of pancreatic cancer in October 2014. I didn't know her personally but somehow her death changed my life! She was an avid runner and missed it in the last days of her life. I hated the thought of running but decided to give it a try and see what was so special about it. It wasn't fun in the beginning but the satisfaction of completing it was better than any pain in my body! Since then I've been running a lot and it will be my biggest pleasure to run The NYC Marathon in her memory.
Pancreatic cancer is the 4th largest killer of all cancer killers and the least funded of the top 10 cancers. It is also the only cancer on the top 10 list with a single digit survival rate after 5 years.
There is no cure for pancreatic cancer yet and we can all help to make it happen!!!
Thank you all
