I am excited to share with you that I am an official member of Team Sharsheret for the 2016 TCS New York City Marathon!
I have already begun to train for my race. I am inspired to undertake this rigorous challenge as I am doing it in support of an amazing organization - SHARSHERET, a national not-for-profit organization supporting young women and families, of all Jewish backgrounds, facing breast and ovarian cancer at every stage—before, during, and after diagnosis. All of Sharsheret’s programs are open to all women and men.
It is particularly meaningful for me because I am running in memory of my sister Rochie, the founder of this amazing organization.
The name of the organization “Sharsheret”, Hebrew word for chain, symbolizes the connections made by the organization with women, families, and the community. The organization started out as a “link” program to provide support for women going through similar treatments at similar stages of cancer, and since has expanded its programs and services to provide support for the families, as well as the children of young parents affected by breast and ovarian cancer.
For more information on the organization and the additional programs and services provided, visit http://www.sharsheret.org/about/programs-and-services.
As a member of this incredible Team, I have pledged to raise funds (which I hope to greatly exceed!) in support of Sharsheret’s breast cancer and ovarian cancer programs and services. I am asking you to please support me in my athletic and fundraising efforts as I take on this challenge. All contributions are tax-deductible.
Thank you, in advance, for your support!
