Welcome to the donation page for the Pinkathon San Francisco 2016!
The 3rd Annual Pinkathon San Francisco is a FREE, unsupported, untimed Fun Run to support the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. It will take place on Saturday, October 1, 2016 at the San Francisco Ferry Building, Northwest Entrance, in front of Gott's Roadside. Over 100 participants will run or walk distances of 5K, 10K, 10M, Half Marathon, Marathon and 50K!. Our official website is http://www.pinkathon.org.
The Pinkathon San Francisco's organizers are friends and fellow Breast Cancer Survivors Ellen Holbrook and Ultra Running Coach "Mama Lisa" Felder. Ellen is a celebrating 17 years as a Breast Cancer Survivor, while Lisa was diagnosed more recently and is still undergoing treatment. Both Ellen and Lisa were thin, healthy, experienced long-distance runners at the time of their diagnosis, with NO FAMILY HISTORY of Breast Cancer. In fact, 85% of new breast cancer patients have NO FAMILY HISTORY of breast cancer. Please help us raise money to support continued research into the causes of Breast Cancer and to help find a cure!
The Pinkathon San Francisco has selected the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF) as our official charity because they are the TOP-RATED breast cancer charity iin the USA. According to Charity Navigator which monitors non-profits, 91% of your donations to BCRF go directly to breast cancer research and awareness programs. This means than less than 10% of donations go towards paying for fundraising and administrative expenses.
