Welcome to "Rise for a Cure: The Gary Schmidt Memorial Walk/Run/Ride to End Lung Cancer." We’re rising to the challenge to make a difference and raise funds for USC’s Norris Comprehensive Cancer Center.
Please join us in our mission: To fund research that improves the quality and length of life for lung cancer patients.
THERE ARE THREE EASY WAYS TO PARTICIPATE
1. Click "Register" to walk/run or ride, and choose "Join a Team," "Create a Team," or "Fundraise as an Individual."
2. Click "Donate to a Fundraiser" if you're unable to attend the event, but want to sponsor an individual or team.
3. Businesses or individuals can sponsor the event, or if you'd like to volunteer to help, please contact Dawn Schmidt Brookshire at email@example.com.
So that’s the scoop. But before you go, let us share our heart…
This event is in honor and memory of Gary Schmidt. Gary Schmidt was the best kind of man. He loved his family deeply. He lived his life passionately. He impacted his colleagues with his work ethic and integrity. He was devoted, courageous and full of a spirit that will never be replaced. We miss him, and we lost him too soon.
This event is for him. It’s for anyone who’s had lung cancer, or has lung cancer. It’s for the family members who’ve lost someone, or are currently caring for someone who’s sick.
Please join us as we raise hope and find a cure! Also, make sure to "Like" the "Rise for a Cure" Facebook page for updates, and then watch and share the video. You can view it at left, or find it on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sBCfBzrDdXc.
