"Proceeds benefit the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, as part of my commitment with Team in Training to run the Nike Women's Half-Marathon this October, here in San Francisco. This cause is near and dear to me, as I almost lost my cousin to Hodgkins Lymphoma. Last year celebrated her 10 year anniversary of being cancer free - I cheered her on as she ran in he very event I have committed to running myself! Inspired by her courage and strength, I am running to save lives! So let's have some fun, dance to some sick old school hip-hop beats, watch some sparkly ladies dance, and party for a good cause!"
