Louise Tanski - New York City Marathon fundraiser

Dear family and friends,

In January, I committed to raising $3,500 for Team TEAL’s New York City Marathon team. The marathon will be able to go on as planned; however, I'm committed to raising the $3,500 that I promised the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition, and on running 26.2 miles on November first. Ovarian cancer is the deadliest cancer among women and is the 5th leading cause of cancer-related deaths in women, yet there is still no way to screen for ovarian cancer in women who do not have any signs or symptoms. The NOCC is committed to funding research in addition to helping affected families access the resources they need to stay afloat both economically and emotionally. I would love for you to join me in supporting their efforts!

That said, running a marathon alone is not much fun. So here is where you come in! I’m anticipating it will take me just under 4 hours to run the full distance. I’ve broken the time up into 20mn chunks. For a pledge of $30, you can join me doing any sort of physical activity you wish—running, erging, walking your dog or lifting a two-pound weight in bed. There are only two requirements: you must be moving for the full 20 minutes, and you must text me a motivational picture of yourself doing your workout. Use this link here (docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1497GDOpOzur0FE9HnLN1v49-w5pkARV17M6VqNvvuvg/edit?usp=sharing) to sign up for a 20mn slot.

Together, we can make a difference! Thank you <3

Louise
