As most of you might know, breast cancer has touched my family and close friends many times. Some were unfortunately not lucky enough to win their fights, including my mother.
I have run numerous races and volunteered for the benefit of breast cancer research and programs, but none as big as the New York Marathon! This is why I chose my "Bucket List" Marathon to raise funds for Susan G. Komen.
I want to help Susan G. Komen save lives and end breast cancer forever. 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.
As the world’s largest and most impactful breast cancer organization, Susan G. Komen supports more breast cancer research than any other nonprofit outside the U.S. government, while providing real-time help to those facing the disease.
