This year is about #whatsyourcolor. Let's start a conversation about why this color is important to you. Have you been affected by cancer? Maybe someone you know or love has been impacted by cancer? A cancer diagnosis can turn a person's world upside down in an instant. Pink Warrior Angels of TX understands this by continuing to help warriors through treatments.
A scientific paper published in the American Cancer Society journal, CA: A Cancer Journal for Clinicians. The Facts & Figures annual report provides:
In 2020, there will be an estimated 1.8 million new cancer cases diagnosed and 606,520 cancer deaths in the United States.
Our goal is to help raise $15,000 to help provide scholarships, financial aid, and chemo care kits for our cancer brothers and sisters during their cancer journey. Each participant will receive a race participation medal, bib, and neck gaiter (face mask). Once registration is complete you will be invited to a special Facebook group with other participants. This will be the place to encourage each other, post tips and tricks, and post your time/pictures once complete. There will be door prizes each day during the virtual race. Have fun, invite friends to join your team- Wear your finisher medal with pride!
This year I’m honoring all those who left too soon. Each warrior fought so hard and won their battle in the end. No more pain. No more sickness. While we miss them terribly, they are forever in our hearts.
