BENEFITING: Lymphoma Research Foundation
EVENT DATE: Nov 01, 2014
"Exactly one year ago today, my closest friends decided to turn a negative situation into something positive. Upon the news of my diagnosis with Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma, my friends began a No-Shave November Campaign to put a smile on my face and show me the support I was going to have every step of the way. As I reflect on this past year, the brotherhood that was created around me is one that has the ability to make a difference in the world. A year later, I am in remission and am back at Indiana University for my senior year. But I am only one case. In the United States, an individual is diagnosed with Lymphoma every 7 minutes. The fight against Lymphoma is one that is far from over.
As November approaches this year, our band of brothers will be out in full force. Last November, our No Shave November Fundraiser raised over $60,000 for The Lymphoma Research Foundation. This year, our goal is to raise over $75,000. Please help in our fundraising efforts by joining the No-Shave team and raising awareness for Lymphoma. If you are an individual with Lymphoma or know somebody with Lymphoma, stay strong and remember, Tough Times Don’t Last, Tough People Do.
I ask that along with donations, everyone posts a daily picture to twitter/facebook/instagram using our campaign motto, #BriansBeardGang. Team Briguy all day everyday. "
