BENEFITING: Sarcoma Foundation of America
Iowa is a large area to organize a walk so in an effort to not exclude anyone by having the walk in an inconvenient location I have opted for this fundraising option instead. Eastern Iowa would likely prevent Western Iowans from attending. Sarcoma is not selective based on your geological location so neither should this event. The purpose is to raise money and awareness for the rare cancer Sarcoma which is more common in children (about 15% of all cancers), but only 1% of adults. This type of cancer has fingers which encompasses tissue and organs.
My challenge is for everyone to donate $25 and pass on this fundraiser to all your friends and family with the same challenge to them. Let's show how Iowa can not only meet this challenge, but hopefully surpass it.
I would also appreciate indiviudals sending me photos to be posted on this site of individuals you know that are currently battling Sarcoma or lost their fight.
The challenge is $25 per person, but any amount is greatly appreciated and will help add to the overall goal.Thank you in advance for your assistance with making this event a success.
