BENEFITING: Susan G. Komen
EVENT DATE: Oct 21, 2011
On October 21st -23rd, thousands of women and men will unite and walk 60 miles through Atlanta. The Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure® is a weekend of hope, as we honor lives lost, celebrate survivors, promote breast cancer research and help bring breast cancer care to those who so desperately need it.
I have committed myself to walk and have agreed to raise a minimum of $2,300 to help fight breast cancer. Net proceeds from the 3-Day for the Cure are invested in breast health programs and breast cancer research. The research funded focuses on decreasing breast cancer incidence and mortality in the next decade.
In order to reach this goal, I ask for your support in the form of a monetary donation. My sister, Stacey, and I are walking in honor of our mom. We found out last summer that she had breast cancer. She had surgery followed by radiation and she is now CANCER FREE! So we are celebrating and giving back by raising money to find a cure!
Unfortunately, breast cancer has become an all too common occurrence among women and men throughout the world. Now is the time to take action to help end this disease. The more funds that I raise, the sooner we can end this fight. More information about the 3-Day can be found at The3Day.org or by calling 800-996-3DAY; I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. By supporting me in the 3-Day, you will ultimately help put an end to breast cancer. Thank you for your support and consideration.
