We are so excited to run the 2016 NYC Marathon on November 6, 2016 while raising money for Sharsheret—combining two of our favorite things: running and tzedakah (charity). Running centers us and reminds us to count our many blessings. To be given the opportunity to run in such a great race for a truly meaningful cause is a gift.
Sharsheret is an amazing organization. Both of us have friends and family touched by breast cancer and ovarian cancer who received support from Sharsheret. We are honored to support such a righteous cause. For more information: http://www.sharsheret.org/
Very personally, Marcia is running in honor of her mother-in-law, Sally Glickman, who recently found a lump in her breast. She had been cancer free for over 20 years and then, absolutely out of nowhere, she received news that the cancer had returned. It was small and operable. And, Thank
G-d, it is gone again, for now. But the scary reality for all of us is that this is a disease that can strike at any time and can come back at any time, even for those so sure to have beaten it.
As a member of this incredible Team, we have pledged to raise funds (which we hope to greatly exceed!) in support of Sharsheret’s breast cancer and ovarian cancer programs and services. We are asking you to please support us in our athletic and fundraising efforts as we take on this challenge. All contributions are tax-deductible.
