6 years ago I registered for this "race" to support a teammate at work...Holly who had been diagnosed with breast cancer earlier in the year (on my birthday in June to be exact). I'm thrilled to say Holly is cancer-free and a survivor!
This year also marks my 4th year of being on the race planning committee. Great people. Great teamwork. Great cause.
I was recently honored with the 2015 Christy Blanchard Race Volunteer of the Year Award as voted on by my race committee peers. As many of you know, this year also marks my 50th birthday.
To help me celebrate both these events, maybe you can find it within you to give for the first time or give a little more to help me celebrate.
You can donate online with your credit card by clicking the button above my fundraising thermometer.
Your support helps us get one step closer to a world without breast cancer. 75 percent of the money raised through the Race stays in the community to fund local breast cancer education, screening and treatment programs. The remaining 25 percent supports groundbreaking breast cancer research.
Together, we are fueling the best science, boldest community and biggest impact in the fight against breast cancer. And we will not stop until this disease is gone forever. That’s our promise. Will you please join me in this fight by making a donation today?
