Happy Holidays and a BIG December vote for you!!

Please check out my "Mud for Art" project...
I am raising money for The California State Summer School Arts Foundation at CalArts. Its mission is to train the next generation of arts professionals in animation, creative writing, dance, film & video, music, theatre, and visual arts. And what better way to raise money for this amazing program than to run through obstacles and mud?! And my next run is coming up soon!!

Your donations will help support low-income, aspiring artists and will enable those students to realize their dreams and aspirations in the arts.

CROWDRISING SINCE: Jun 02, 2011
Stuff About Me:

As a freshman in college, I’ll never forget getting the phone call from my mother, Leslie, telling me that she had been diagnosed with breast cancer.   I was not aware of how many people and families are affected by breast cancer, until it happened to my family.  I am so thankful that my mom was able to beat breast cancer, and hope that by raising money for cancer research, we can find a cure, and more people can survive this disease.

When we first heard the story of the Diamond Dawgs Under 11 Baseball team, and what they were doing to raise awareness for breast cancer, we were blown away! Two of  the 11 year old boys have recently lost their mothers to cancer (one to colon cancer, and one to breast cancer).  The boys came up with the idea to wear pink jerseys to all of their tournament games to raise awareness for cancer.  Also, instead of wearing their last names on the back of their jerseys, they have each came up with a word of what cancer means to them (example: Fight, Believe, Attitude, and Hope).  Tracy Harnly, the mother who was fighting breast cancer, had a goal to live to see her son play in a tournament in Cooperstown (Baseball Hall of Fame) next summer.  Though Tracy lost her battle to cancer, the Diamond Dawgs have continued to fight and are fundraising to go play in the tournment next summer!!  Half of our proceeds will go directly towards the Diamond Dawgs trip to Cooperstown,  and the other half will go to American Cancer Society.

We were so inspired by these young boys, and were amazed by their selflessness and their sense of purpose.  With your help the Diamond Dawgs can honor one mother's legacy, while helping in the fight to find a cure for cancer.   We’ve never met a more influential group of 11-year old boys.  If they can send this powerful of a message…what can we do?!
