BENEFITING: CANCER CARE INC
EVENT DATE: Oct 17, 2015
JOIN TEAM HOPE FOR CANCERCARE!!
My wife and I have registered to participate in the VCU Broad Street Mile in Richmond Virginia on 10/17. The event that we are registered under is the “No Limits Mile” which allows folks to run/walk for a charity or organization of their choosing. We have created Team Hope through CrowdRise to raise funds for CancerCare (www.cancercare.org) to help families with support and financial assistance while they are dealing with their diagnosis. This event is so meaningful to us for several reasons - it will mark a huge milestone for me in my recovery from back surgery last year, honor my mother Sheila who is a SURVIVOR of uterine cancer, my mother-in-law Rene who is a 16 year SURVIVOR of stage 3 lung cancer, and give us an outlet to cope with waiting for my future spinal tumor removal. Please donate in honor of any of those things or in honor of your loved ones - if you don't know someone personally affected by cancer, odds are that you unfortunately will at some point. These families need all the support they can get .Cancer happens - regardless of financial status or emotional strength.
So please join us in a cause that is close to our hearts! Your support will help this national non-profit which provides free professional counseling, education, information and referrals, and financial assistance to individuals and families like mine – those facing a diagnosis of cancer. Make your tax-deductible donation today. CancerCare is among the nation’s highest-rated charities, with 89% of your contribution going towards those who need it most…so your donation really makes a difference. Be as generous as you can. Your donations, along with my own, will give people with cancer and their loved ones a better, more hopeful future!

If I can get a good amount of folks to join the team I will have shirts made for the event. If you have any questions about the event or donations, feel free to call or email me.
