BENEFITING: Stand Up To Cancer
EVENT DATE: Sep 23, 2012
Hey everyone, thanks for checking out our fundraising page!
When you look around at those you know, you soon realize everyone – whether it be a friend, family member, colleague, or even yourself – has been affected by cancer in some shape or form. In fact, one in two men and one in three women will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetimes. Cancer kills 1,500 Americans every day...That’s one person every minute! When we read this statistic, we were blown away. But we can change these staggering statistics if we stand up to this disease together.
That’s why We have joined Team Stand Up To Cancer (SU2C) in support of aiding cancer research. Stand Up To Cancer is a charitable organization, which raises funds to accelerate the pace of groundbreaking cancer research that will get new therapies to patients quickly and save lives (For more information on SU2C, please visit www.standup2cancer.org).
On September 23rd, Marc and Nicole Cabezas will be running the Jersey City Half Marathon for Team SU2C. Please support this worthwhile cause by contributing to our personal goal of $3,000. You can donate online through this secure personal page. Your donation is tax deductible and could qualify for your employer’s matching gift program. Please be sure to ask.
If you have any questions or would like to join our SU2C fundraising team, please do not hesitate to contact us – email@example.com firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks for your help!
Marc & Nicole
