I've joined a team with some CrossFit peeps, and I could use some help pulling my weight (see what I did there). We're doing an event called Pulling For Our Little Heroes, and the proceeds go to the Northern Nevada Children's Cancer Foundation.
Working out is only part of the competition, and raising money is the other part, so here I am soliciting you for a donation. I've set a goal at $500.
The competition is next weekend, so I'm on a bit of a deadline.
I totally understand if money is tight. Please don't feel any pressure to donate. I would never usually solicit for anything, but this is a great foundation doing great things, and for that reason, I feel ok about it.
Thanks so much everyone.
See below for more information about the foundation itself.
Northern Nevada Children's Cancer Foundation:
NNCCF helps alleviate the financial burden childhood cancer places on northern Nevada families through our Family Assistance Fund. We assist with medical expenses – insurance copays and deductibles, uncovered procedures, medication costs, and other out-of-pocket medical expenses the family may face.
NNCCF can assist with household expenses – prepping the house for an immunocompromised child, mortgage or rent, utility bills, etc. We help with these expenses when a family faces a reduction of income because of time spent away from work due to treatment. We also aid families with travel and lodging costs related to treatment.
