2017 Michigan Breast Cancer 3-Day Walk August 4-6
Friends & Family,
This will be my 10th year participating in the Michigan 3-Day to raise money for breast cancer research and treatment support. You all know by now, that I am passionate about raising money to find a cure for breast cancer (and all other cancers for that matter). Every year, research and awareness bring us closer to a cure and improved survival rates but we need to do more.
Again this year, I am dedicating my participation to the memory of Linda Dinger, a good friend and coworker who lost her battle with this disease in 2006. I also participate to honor my sister Linda Collins who is a survivor. Unfortunately, almost all of us know someone who has been touched by this disease. Let’s do something now to help future generations.
Through the generous support of so many of you, I have been able to raise over $5000 each of the last nine years. In order to commemorate my 10th event, I am committed to raising $10,000 for the very first time. I am willing to do the work, but I need your help and support once more to reach my goal.
For those of you who are still working and willing to make a donation, please check with your employer to see if they might have a matching program. I would also be interested to know if any of you can suggest a location where a fundraiser might be held or have any other ideas.
Anything that you might be able to do to support my efforts would be very much appreciated. To donate, visit www.the3day.org, click on “donate” and “find a participant” then insert my name and follow the prompts to donate. It only takes a few minutes – so why not take the time right now.
If you have any questions for me about the work done by Susan G Komen or know others that might want to support this cause with a donation please forward this note on to them. There is no question in my mind that our effort are making a difference.
Thanks you in advance for your support,
