Dear family, friends and colleagues,
On August 25th, 26th &27th and for the 4th consecutive year, with my daughter Audrey & my friends from the Roberts, I will be participating in The Susan G. Komen 3-Day® 60-mile walk.
As I think you all know by now, I had decided to create this team, as my very dear friend Dominique, had been fighting breast cancer for 10 years (she had BRCA1 gene).
We wanted to do something to help her…unfortunately on May 19, 2014, cancer was stronger than her, despite her strength and courage...and took her life away. She was 48 years old.
Even if these walks will never bring her back, we hope that what we are doing will save other women and men's lives....
Did you know that more than 40,000 women and men are still dying of breast cancer every year in America?
This year again, please HELP ME in this fight because the more we raise, the quicker we will make giant steps to stop cancer!!!
Seventy-five percent of the net proceeds raised by the 3-Day® help support Komen’s Research and Training Grant Program and large public health outreach programs for women and men facing breast cancer. The remaining 25 percent helps fund local community and Affiliate support and outreach programs.
Last year our team raised a little more than $38k!!!!
We would not have been able to do so without your generosity! So this is why I’m reaching out to you AGAIN today. If you think we can make a difference, please make a donation, with your help I might be able to reach my goal of $5,000 this year!
Then you can relax...I will do the walk for you :)!
Thank you in advance for your generosity!
