About Think Pink Rocks

We are a non-profit organization whose mission is to raise awareness about early detection of and genetic testing for breast cancer and to provide critical funding for research.

Did You Know?

  • A woman’s risk of developing breast and ovarian cancer is greatly increased if she carries the BRCA1 or BRCA2 mutation (Breast Cancer Gene Mutation)
  • Men who carry these mutations also have an increased risk of developing breast and prostate cancer

Think Pink Rocks Breast Cancer Organization is proud to be a charity partner with the New York Road Runners in the spring running of the 2024 United Airlines NYC Half.  This allows us to provide guaranteed marathon entries to runners who commit to make a donation or raise funds totaling $1,000 or more for Think Pink Rocks.

Why Run For Our Team?

Our team will raise money to fund cutting edge breast cancer research.  The money raised for Think Pink Rocks from the 2024 United Airlines NYC Half will benefit breast cancer research at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City, where Think Pink Rocks has established a dedicated breast cancer research fund, as well as at the Rogel Cancer Center at the University of Michigan, where Think Pink Rocks is funding numerous exciting breast cancer research projects.

Some members of our team have a direct connection to breast cancer and have family and friends who have been directly impacted, but we also have many team members who are running simply because they want to support a great cause.

Event Details:    March 17, 2024, New York City
