BENEFITING: PROJECT PURPLE
ORGANIZER: PROJECT PURPLE
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
I'm running the NYC Marathon again this year on behalf of Project Purple, a great organization that raises awareness and funds towards a cure for pancreatic cancer. My mother passed away from the disease in 2008 and I've been dedicated to the cause ever since.
Some of the facts: although pancreatic cancer is the 4th largest killer of all cancers, it's 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.
Every donation counts. Thank you all in advance and I'll look out for you on the course come November 6!
