BENEFITING: American Cancer Society
EVENT DATE: May 10, 2014
Hello Friends, Family, Colleagues and those of you who I've met along the way,
I was introduced to the Young Ambassadors through two friends of ours in Seattle, Karl Burns and Ashley Underwood. Karl and Ashley have a mission, with the other members of Young Ambassadors, and that is TO END CANCER!
Who are the Young Ambassadors? The Young Ambassadors are a group of people, just like you and me, that share a passion and a mission to help Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center (VICC). Their commitment, along with advocacy and and volunteering, is to help in fundraising efforts to support breakthrough cancer research.
Collectively this year's spring fundraiser is seeking to raise $105,000 dollars to fund 3 discovery grants. Ashley and Karl have a personal goal to raise $35,000 alone!! WOW!! Talk about a commitment. Here's their story:
My commitment to Ashley and Karl is to fundraise $1000 dollars to help them to their goal by May 10th! Each of us, just like the Young Ambassadors, have our own stories of how our lives have been touched by cancer. My request to you is that you remember that story and make a $10 donation in honor of that person or persons. If collectively 100 of you do this, we are on track to help support another life being saved. I'll start it off with a donation of $25... who will be next??
Thank you for the consideration. LET'S END THIS!!
