Dear Family & Friends,
Thank you to all of you who supported me in my 2017 Komen 3-Day!! It was such an amazing and rewarding experience, that I have taken on the challenge of WALKING AGAIN in 2018!!!! Woohooo! Once again, as a participant, I am committed to raising a minimum of $2300, which I am hoping to do by June 2018, so that I can earn free airfare!!! :-)
If you are in any way able, please consider making a donation to this amazing cause--every litle bit helps! As before, for each person who makes a donation of $50 or more, I will walk one of my miles in honor of YOU (or the person of your choice)!!! You can donate online at http://www.the3day.org/site/TR/2017/SanDiegoEvent2018?px=7747881&pg=personal&fr_id=2015. Please also consider asking your employer if they will double your donation with a matching gift. :-) I would like to reach my fundraising goal by May 30th, so please don’t delay. :-)
Once again, THANK YOU to all of you who donated to my 2017 walk! I was truly honored and inspired by all of your support, and by the stories that many of you shared with me!
Thank you for taking the time to read this email and thank you for your support.
* Don't wait - donate today! Please support me as I take on this incredible challenge.
