BENEFITING: BREAST CANCER FAMILY FOUNDATION INC
EVENT DATE: Oct 04, 2014
I am raising funds for the Breast Cancer Family Foundation. I have been on their Board of Directors for 5 years. Their mission to Inspire People in Our Community to Lead Cancer-Free Healthy Lifestyles is admirable. They reach out to nearly 9,000 students each year (primarily in Freshman Health Class) and share cancer risks and prevention ... beginning with eating healthy and exercising.
As many of you know, I have been touched by early stage breast cancer 5 years ago and am blessed to have caught it early through a preventative mammogram requiring surgery and (now) a lifetime of living a healthy lifestyle.
The Pink Pumpkin Walk/Run is such a fun and inspirational event. I encourage you to join us this year on Saturday, October 4 at NWTC at 9:00 (10:00 start time for walk/run). If you can't make it and are willing to donate to our great cause, we would be ever so grateful. It costs the organization about $6/student and the long-term impact is immeasurable.
Thank you for your consideration!
