Last year was an amazing time for our team. We rasied a lot of money for colon cancer awareness and want to keep the ball rolling.
We will all be participating in the 2013 Savannah Get Your Rear In Gear 5K Run/Walk, an event to benefit the Colon Cancer Coalition. I want to make a difference for the thousands of people in our community touched by colon cancer. The funds raised will stay right here, helping with prevention, early detection and treatment for this disease.
As many of you know, colon cancer has hit home and I want to try and help anyone I can from going through what I and many other American's have to when dealing with colon cancer. I know it will be a fun day.
Please support my efforts to build hope and beat colon cancer! Thank you for your help. There are two ways to help:
1) Run the race; join the team. This option is a $25 cost and is for the run registration only. Make sure when you sign up for the event you choose to be on Team Savannah Semi-colon;s from crowdrise.com. After you have registered, you can fundraise and get your family and friends to support you in the run by donating money to the event.
2) Donate to the Colon Cancer Coalition. This option is just as it sounds. You donate money to the team or a team member. This money is a tax write off and all of the money goes towards the non-profit organization. This can also be accomplished on the team page at crowdrise.com. Send any donators to the team page and a link will be available. This will allow non-runners to donate to the event.
Shirts for the event were purchased and will be the same design this year. I will be placing another shirt order this year and if anyone is interested please contact Jeff Garton. If you did not get a shirt, you can wear a royal blue shirt to match the team.
Thanks to all for everything!!
