Description

Unfortunately cancer has affected too many people that I know, including myself. I've decided to take this stage four breast cancer diagnosis and use it to push me to be better than I was prior. I've become more obsessed with chasing after my dreams, making the most of each day and crossing things off my "bucket list". More recently, I've added raising $10,000 for Breast Cancer Research to my list. My goal of this race is to raise money specifically for Stage 4 Cancer Research. Who knew that only 2-5% of funds raised for breast cancer goes towards stage 4?! When I found that out, I decided that while I refuse to accept the things I cannot change, I will instead, change the things I cannot accept. All of the profits raised at the end of this event will go toward Metastatic Breast Cancer Research. 

I continue to have faith in a complete cure one day; research will get us there! And fund raising will get us that research! 

While COVID-19 might affect the ability for all of us to formally run TOGETHER and be timed, we can still virtually raise money for the cause and have fun doing it!

For those in Jacksonville that feel comfortable, we will be gathering at Beaches Town Center in Neptune Beach on 11/8/2020 at 10 AM to run together along the beach. Following that, we will have a BYOB post-race party with a raffle! 

DO NOT be fooled, this can be a walk in the park, you don't need to run!

I can't wait to see the outcome from this event and hope that everyone will be posting pictures of their group moving in their t-shirts!
