Welcome to Abigail Persky's Fundraising Page
This October I will be running the Famously Hot Pink Half Marathon in Columbia, South Carolina with proceeds and donations benefiting the Palmetto Health Breast Center. Proceeds raised will fund a seventh 3D mammography unit at the Breast Center.
Thank you so much for your support! Your donation to help the continued fight against breast cancer means the world to me! My family has not experienced breast cancer personally, but I run to fight for the 1 in 8 women who will develop invasive breast cancer in her lifetime. That's 12% of all women!
