I'm very excited to be part of The Pink Agenda (TPA) 2016 marathon team this year!
The fight against Breast Cancer began in our family in 2013 with my cousin Marisa and in 2015 with my sister Vanessa. My Sister has had a challenging but successful treatment series over the past 18 months and we continue to support her along the path to recovery. We are very proud of her strength and bravery along this journey that will give others hope of also being a survivor.
My cousin fought a 2.5 yr battle with breast cancer and recently died at the age of 37 yrs old. Her fight gave the people she knew and those she had never met the courage and strength to fight and defined what it meant to be positive, happy and selfless. She will always have a special place in our hearts and give us courage in times of doubt.
Running in this year's NYC Marathon with the Pink Agenda is part of a shared and aligned commitment to help raise money for breast cancer research and care, as well as awareness of the disease among young professionals.
The Pink Agenda finds, funds, and partners with people and programs such as the Dana Farber Cancer Institute and the Breast Cancer Research Foundation that are improving the lives of those suffering from breast cancer and conducting the groundbreaking research necessary to improve their odds.
To date - our runners have raised over $500,000 for breast cancer research! Running 26.2 miles isn’t easy, but neither is battling—or eradicating—breast cancer.
Your donation big or small is one step closer to making breast cancer history!
