Gearing up for the 26.2 with Donna

Dec 22, 2011

Announcing a special JWEN event to kick off the New Year!

This event will be a fundraiser to support a high-impact fundraising effort for the 26.2 with Donna: 110M for 110K

A group of athletes was interested in doing something out of the ordinary to make a big fundraising impact for this important cause.  These runners will cover 110 miles to the marathon finish of the 26.2 with Donna in an effort to raise $110,000.  If they can achieve that goal, the 26.2 with Donna should be able to meet the Weaver Family Foundation's $100,000 challenge.  That would nearly double the contributions raised to fund ground-breaking breast cancer research and to provide financial support to women undergoing treatment for breast cancer!

We hope you will come and support this very important cause.  We have a fantastic line up of speakers:

Donna Deegan
News anchor, author, breast cancer survivor and founder of the 26.2 with Donna: The National Marathon to Finish Breast Cancer.

Kellie Smirnoff
Accomplished endurance athlete, ultra marathoner, EPICMAN competitor (that's a tiple ironman!).  Kellie and her sister Heather will team up for the 110M for 110K, each running 110 Kilometers to the marathon finish.

Marni Sumbal
Exercise physiologist, registered and licensed dietitian, coach, writer, speaker and 5x Ironman Triathlon finisher.  Marni will provide advice about how we can all ensure our best performance on race day.

Jennifer Levinson
Many of you know that Jen is a Senior Director at NBA Creative Services, but she is also a 10-year survivor and active breast cancer advocate.  Jen has served on the board of the Young Survivors' Coalition and the Florida Breast Cancer Coalition Research Foundation and she is a recipient of the National Breast Cancer Coalition's Advocacy Award.  Jen will give us her personal perspective on the importance of providing funding to ground breaking research like the Herceptin trial that she participated in at Mayo. 

Seasons 52, who focuses on providing a Fresh Dining Experience that Celebrates Living Well, is the perfect venue for  this event.  We are thrilled that they have also agreed to be a sponsor of the event!  Because of their generosity, we will be able to donate most of the $110 charge for the evening directly to the 26.2 with Donna.

Thank you Seasons 52!

A portion of the $110 for the evening will qualify as a tax-deductible donation, and we will provide a receipt to all registered attendees.
