Why Support BCRF?

The Breast Cancer Research Foundation advances the world’s most promising research to eradicate breast cancer in our lifetime. By spending 91 cents of every dollar on research and public awareness, BCRF remains one of the nation’s most fiscally responsible charities. We currently support more than 200 researchers around the globe who are dedicated to six critical areas of focus—tumor biology, heredity & ethnicity, treatment, survivorship and metastasis—ensuring we learn more about breast cancer at every stage.


Your support funds so many of the world’s brightest minds and brings hope to the thousands of patients, survivors and families affected by the disease. We couldn’t do it without you, and we won’t stop until we achieve prevention and a cure for breast cancer.

Welcome to my fundraising page for the Pinkathon San Francisco 2017!

I am co-organizer and founder of the 4th Annual Pinkathon San Francisco -  a FREE, unsupported, untimed Fun Run to raise money for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.  It will take place on Saturday, October 21, 2017 at the San Francisco Ferry Building, Northwest Entrance, in front of Gott's Roadside.  Over 100 runners will run or walk distances of 10K, 10M, Half Marathon, Marathon, 50K and a Scavenger Hunt!.  Registration is FREE at Ultrasignup, but all runners are expected to make donations and raise other donations for our charity.

As some of you know, I am celebrating over 17 years as a Breast Cancer Survivor.  When I was diagnosed in 1999, I was young, thin, and extremely healthy, with NO FAMILY HISTORY of breast cancer.  I had already completely 7 marathons and numerous triathlons. I was shocked.  I had been misled by popular media to think that unless I had a family history, I was not at risk.  That's TOTALLY WRONG.  85% of new breast cancer patients also have NO FAMILY HISTORY of breast cancer. ANYONE can get Breast Cancer, even men!    Please help us raise money to support continued research into the causes of Breast Cancer and to help find a cure!

I selected the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF) as the official charity for the Pinkathon San Francisco 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 9% of donations go towards paying overhead.  For more information, go to Charity Navigator.

Want to help?
