We asked our community of runners:
Why are you running with Team NYU Langone?
I work in cancer research and support the mission of trying to raise funding for the field. I have seen many people who had their cancer caught too late and understand the importance of early detection.
In 2018, I was diagnosed with ovarian cancer and treated at NYU Langone Hospital—Long Island. I’m running with For All Who Fight, the nonprofit my sisters and I founded, to raise funds for the health system that helped me so much.
I’m running for my aunt, who was recently diagnosed with cancer.
I am a native of Brooklyn and a social worker in NYU Langone’s Division of Gastroenterology. I want to help in any way I can to support cancer programs.
I am a third-year medical student and looking for a way to give back to such an amazing institution, engage with my community, and, most importantly, support patients.
I was supposed to run the NYC Marathon last year but had to defer due to a stress fracture injury in both shins. I am just getting back into running thanks to my physical therapist at NYU Langone.
As a physical therapist, I am always interested in opportunities to promote health and wellness—all for a good cause. This is a perfect chance to do both.
Join these incredible advocates in creating a healthier future for the people of Brooklyn.
