I'm walking 60 miles!!!
Hi and thank you for taking the time to visit my personal page. I'm excited as I embark on an amazing journey in the fight to find a cure and continue funding research for breast cancer! On October 4, I will continue the efforts that millions have contributed to so far to find a cure for breast cancer by walking 60 miles over three days. My journey begins now, as I ask you for your financial support!
Why am I doing this you may ask????? I have made the decision to walk and fundraise because i have many personal links to Breast Cancer. I am walking for my Mom who is a 20+ year breast cancer survivor!! I fundraise for a cure because i know young women who have lost the fight with breast cancer and left behind parents, siblings, and children who I hope will never have to endure that magnitude of loss again.
I walk for my friends and family who have won the battle and some who are still fighting. I ask for donations so that millions of little girls and boys will never have to become Women and Men who have to fight this disease without a cure, or without the means to go somewhere to receive the necessary tests and treatments to keep them alive!
FACT: Every 19 seconds, somewhere in the world, a case of breast cancer is diagnosed in a woman.
FACT: Nearly 2,000 cases of breast cancer are diagnosed in men, in the U.S. every year
I have to meet the minimum fundraising goal of $2,300 in order to walk. Every donation helps me get closer to that goal!
Where does my money go you ask??? Seventy-five percent of the net proceeds raised by the Komen 3-Day help fund national research and large public health outreach programs. The remaining 25 percent helps fund local community and Affiliate support and outreach programs. PLEASE join me in my efforts to help find a cure!!!
Donations in any amount are helpful, each one helps me meet my goal!! And remember, every donation, no matter the amount is tax deductible!
Thank you for visiting my page!
