A Caregiver’s Personal Story of Hope, Compassion and Running

tricia werunforhope

WE RUN 5K Fitness Fun Run/Walk Executive Director, Tricia Singh shares her perspective on how being a caregiver compelled her to launch the annual fitness event that is expected to draw hundreds of runners this Fall.

"My mother has stage four metastatic breast cancer and has endured surgeries, hormone therapy, chemotherapy, and radiation. I hope that this race will raise funds every year to help support SHARE in their mission to provide empowerment, education, an improved quality of life and a cure for these diseases. After my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer two years ago, I have seen first-hand the importance of cancer research and spreading knowledge to others about how to take care of yourself and your health."

The WE RUN Fitness 5K Fun Run/Walk will take place in Flushing Meadows Corona Park on Saturday, October 4, 2014. All are invited to attend and participate. For additional information & sponsorship opportunities, please visit www.werunonline.com or call 646-571-8173.
