Team Sharsheret will participate in the New York City Marathon, set for Sunday, November 1. The team raises awareness of general health and both breast and ovarian cancer, as well as support for Sharsheret’s national programs. Team athletes train and participate in athletic races, including marathons, half marathons, triathlons, and ironman challenges.
Participants run to celebrate a milestone, honor a loved one, or simply promote active and healthy living. Team Sharsheret will fly a participant to the New York metropolitan area from anywhere in the continental United States, and it will provide official Team Sharsheret running gear. Athletes receive weekly training in NY/NJ; virtual training is available for athletes outside the New York metropolitan area. Team Sharsheret holds a pre-race dinner and offers participants a personalized fundraising page to help them meet their goals. Participants agree to raise a minimum of $5,000 for Team Sharsheret to support its national programs.
Sharsheret, Hebrew for “chain,” is a national not-for-profit organization supporting young women and their families, of all Jewish backgrounds, facing breast cancer.
