BENEFITING: TEAM WINTER

ORGANIZER: TEAM WINTER

EVENT: Million Mile March

MELODY CZEKALEWSKI

THE STORY:

 My Grandfather is a prostate cancer survivor.  He was lucky enough to catch his cancer early and he survived.  

But that is not always the case... Prostate cancer is the most common non-skin malignancy in men. It is responsible for more deaths than any other cancer,except for lung cancer.  It affects 1 in 6 men and is more common than breast cancer is to women, yet there is not many blue ribbons or fundraisers for prostate cancer. 

Unfortunately Prostate cancer holds a negative stigma in our culture that causes men not to talk about it. Many men go undetected because they are too embarrassed to see a doctor. I have two sons and a husband that I also want to be very aware of prostate cancer. This year I decided to do something to celebrate my Grandfather's life and at the same time bring awareness to the disease that affects so many men.

So....This March 2012, I will be pledging to walk or run 100 miles for Prostate cancer!!

 I'll be joining "team winter"  in an ambitious nationwide fundraiser to draw awareness and raise money for the Prostate Cancer Foundation. This is definately a big commitment, but Prostate cancer is a big problem, one that isn't talked about enough. This March I'm hoping to change that.  I am participating in this event  to help spread awareness to this disease, in hopes that more men will get tested early and we can save lives. Additionally we want to raise money for cancer research to develop more treatment options, and find better ways to detect the cancer early and determine the rate of which it will spread.

Please donate to my cause!

A DONATION OF ANY AMOUNT IS GREATLY APPRECIATED AND TAX DEDUCTIBLE. All proceeds go to Team Winter and they will make a lump sum donation to the Prostate Cancer Foundation (www.pcf.org).   

        Wanna join my team?

To participate you need to raise at least $100 by March 1st 2012 and pledge to walk or run 100 miles throughout the month of March. (about 3.2 miles/day).
