When exploring the charity partners of the United Airlines NYC Half, I was excited to see T.E.A.L.® listed and honored by the opportunity to run with the team. Ovarian cancer awareness and research is near and dear to my heart after losing a loved one to ovarian cancer a few years ago. Her motto both in her battle with cancer and in living her life was “choose joy,” so I run in celebration of this life I’ve been given.
It brings me great joy to have the physical ability to do hard things, like distance running, and even more joy to be able to do this in memory of someone I love.
Raising awareness about early detection, especially listening to your body, is so important. I’m grateful to play a small part in bringing some awareness about ovarian cancer by running and fundraising for T.E.A.L.®.
You can help Sydney reach her fundraising goal for the 2023 United Airlines NYC Half here. All donations go to Tell Every Amazing Lady® and help with the fight against ovarian cancer.
