As a part of this challenge, I decided to train for and run in the Detroit Marathon in October (including a half marathon or 2 along with way). This fundraising challenge leads up to an inaugural fundraising event ...for young professionals in Southeastern Wisconsin, that is being organized by the MKE More Birthdays Council.
The More Birthdays Council is a group of Milwaukee area young professionals who embrace a vision of a world free of cancer, and helps fund the mission of the American Cancer Society through the engagement of young professionals in the community.
These organizations are doing great things around the country and in Southeastern Wisconsin to help prevent and fight cancer. Any donation to help with this challenge would go a long in helping the American Cancer Society’s mission.
Activat10n is a challenge for ten outstanding up-and-coming professionals in Southeastern Wisconsin to fundraise for the American Cancer Society’s mission leading up to the “Inspiration Soirée” on September 16. Activat10n participants will earn individual recognition leading up to and the evening of the event, including an award for the top fundraiser.
Activat10n fundraisers include: Kimara Armstead, Corry Joe Biddle, Andy Gordon, Luke Hammer, Dana M. Johnson, Melanie Johnson, Dylan Snyder, Kristin Wacker & Andy Ziemer. We encourage you to learn more about each of our fundraisers and make a contribution to support their efforts to make a significant impact on the fight against cancer.
For more than a 100 years, The American Cancer Society has been leading the fight to end cancer. With your support, we have helped usher in an era where more people survive cancer than ever before. By translating our research findings into action, we've seen a 20% decline in US cancer death rates since the early 1990s. Together with our millions of supporters, the American Cancer Society saves lives by helping people stay well and get well, by finding cures, and by fighting back against cancer.
