hello everyone, my name is arik navarrete, i am 24 years old out of san francisco, ca. i am a father of one his name is marsel and he is 1, i also have a fiancé and her name is stephanie. i am basketball player in a bunch of small leagues around the bay area. the reason i am coming to this site is to raise $1,800.00 to participate in the avon walk for breast cancer. why am i trying to do the walk you ask? well last year my aunt was diagnosed with breast cancer, and it really came down hard on my family as a whole. my aunt to me was a second mother i even called her mom when i was younger, because she took care of everyone and did things for everyone. things like baby sat kids, cut people's hair, pierce peoples ears, host barbecues, bake cakes, and also be a support system for anyone who needed it. that's why i want to do this breast cancer walk, to show my support for her as she has for many others in the past. doing this walk for her will give her strength to keep battling this disease. so with help from anyone no matter how much the donation amount, i can get this done. if a donation can't be provided, then help me spread my story, so that i can complete what i am trying to accomplish here. with your help i can make a difference in someone else's life by really going that extra mile. so please send a donation or spread my story for me, and i'll handle the hard part the walking lol. but here's is a link where you can track my progress and see how i'm doing -----> http://info.avonfoundation.org/site/tr/walk/sanfrancisco?px=7565638&pg=personal&fr_id=2364 thank you for your time.
