I have taken on an incredible challenge. On Oct 24,25 & 26, I'll be walking 60 miles over the course of three days, camping out at night with thousands of other women and men taking this journey with me. It's for an event called the Breast Cancer 3-Day, which benefits Susan G. Komen for the Cure and the National Philanthropic Trust Breast Cancer Fund.
Every advancement in breast cancer research, treatment, education and prevention in the last 25 years has been touched by a Komen for the Cure grant. They are working hard to build a future without breast cancer, and I plan on raising $2200 to help bring us closer to that goal.
Please consider making a donation of as much as you can afford(no amount is too little or to big). If you can't give this amount all at once, you can spread it out over four months, using the payment plan option, if you donate online at http:///www.The3Day.org.
Please also ask your employer if they will double your donation with a matching gift.Please support me as I take an amazing journey in the fight against breast cancer.I have wanted to do this for so long, and now that I have lost an amazing 85 lbs. I am able to accomplish my goal.
We have formed a team called "YES MAMMS" to go on this adventure together and we are very excited!! One of our teammates "Is A True Survivor", due to early detection she has overcome this deadly disease, we together want to help make that possible for countless other mothers, grandmothers, sisters, daughters and any other love ones.
Without a cure, one in eight women in the U.S. will continue to be diagnosed with breast cancer. That's why I'm walking in the 3-Day. Because everyone deserves a lifetime.Just follow the link below to visit my personal fundraising web page and make a donation. If you don't want to donate online, please download and print a donation form and mail it to the address on the form. Or you can call 800.996.3DAY to donate over the phone.
I would like to reach my fundraising goal by June 2008, so that I can concentrate on training for the big event.Thank you for taking the time to read this, and thank you for your support.
