BENEFITING: ZERO - The End of Prostate Cancer
ORGANIZER: ZERO - The End of Prostate Cancer
EVENT DATE: Mar 20, 2016
One of the most important people in my life (my dad) is currently in the process of fighting prostate cancer... so I decided to run in this year's NYC United Airlines Half Marathon on "TEAM ZERO" which is a non-profit orgnaization thats mission is to end prostate cancer through awareness, outreach, advocacy and research.
I strongly encourage you to learn more about this powerful organization (https://zerocancer.org/about/who-we-are) and also ask you to please consider helping me reach my fundraising goals - we all know it is a great cause!
Thanks very much!
ZERO - The End of Prostate Cancer
Prostate cancer is the second leading cause of male cancer death, killing a man every 18 minutes. Yet, there is hope: 99 percent survive when it's caught early.
The NYC Half boasts an on-street experience like no other and takes runners from around the city and the globe on a 13.1-mile tour of NYC. Each year, more than 15,000 athletes take the challenge and participate in this exciting event. Led by a talent-packed roster of American and international elites, runners will stop traffic in Manhattan, from Central Park through Times Square to the South Street Seaport!
