After many years of spectating and cheering friends on First Avenue, I am proud to announce I am running in the NYC 2023 TCS Marathon this year on November 5th to support Susan G. Komen's fight against breast cancer. As many of you may know, my mom, Lisa Thiesfeldt, and grandmother, Helen Papa, are both proud breast cancer survivors.
According to the American Cancer Society, about 297,790 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed in women in 2023. 1 in 8 women in the U.S. will be impacted by breast cancer in their lifetime, which is why I’m fundraising to help support Komen’s vision of a world without breast cancer.
I joined the Susan G. Komen 2023 NYC Marathon team in honor of the strongest women in my life (my mom, grandma and shoutout Lisa Legowski & Heidi Steir) and for all of the strong women that have been and will be impacted by this disease. I hope to make these women proud in my first marathon journey.
Any donation is greatly appreciated, and no donation is too small. Please click the donate button and help us in our fight!
