Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure - Fundraising


This year,  on July 23 - 25, I'll be participating in a very special event called the Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure.

I'll walk 60 miles over the course of three days with thousands of other women and men. Net proceeds from the Komen 3-Day for the Cure are invested in breast cancer research and community programs.

I've agreed to raise at least $2,300 in donations. I've set my personal goal at $3500. So I need your help. Would you please consider making a donation? Keep in mind how far I'm walking - and how hard I'll have to train. You can give online at The3Day.org. Just click on the widget to the left to visit my personal fundraising Web page and make a donation. You can also call 800-996-3DAY to donate over the phone.

I am walking with my daughter-in-law who's grandmother is currently being treated for breast cancer.  I will also be walking in the memory of Christine Hartman Myers, who lost her very long battle with breast cancer on April 17, 2006. 

One person is diagnosed with breast cancer every three minutes in the United States. That's why I'm walking so far. To do something bold about breast cancer. I hope that you'll share this incredible adventure with me - by supporting me in my fundraising efforts.

Thank you in advance for your generosity!
