What's motivating you right now?
In 2016, Carly was diagnosed with breast cancer at 22-weeks pregnant and Raced for the Cure a month before her due date. Almost a year later, she's got an awesome husband, a beautiful baby boy, and a cancer-free diagnosis. Carly is a rockstar, and she reminds me everyday why I'm here.
What is something surprising about the Race for the Cure?
Every year there's a new twist. I'll let you in on a 2017 secret… This year you can Cyc for the Cure! Swap your walking shoes out for cycling shoes and let's spin breast cancer out of town.
