BENEFITING: The Breast Cancer Research Foundation
EVENT DATE: Oct 11, 2014
Friends & Family,
I AM PARTICIPATING IN THE TOUGH MUDDER CHALLENGE!!!
I started fundraising ten years ago to honor my mother, Lenore. She was diagnosed at the age of 43 when I was just 8. I watched her battle the disease during 3 separate cancer instances over the course of 5 years. She has now been cancer free for over 20 years! She conquered and overcame, inspiring me to do what I could for awareness.
My fundraising goal for 2014 is $10,000. This time of year is truly meaningful to me because I get to see how supportive my network of friends and family is and it is an incredibly rewarding effort.
Please know that your donation to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation will see more than 90 cents of each dollar go directly towards breast cancer research and awareness programs. It is THE top rated charity for Breast Cancer, receiving an A+ from the American Institute of Philanthropy and a 4-star rating from Charity Navigator. The organization's reach is global, with projects in 28 countries. To read more about their focus, click here:http://www.bcrfcure.org/about_impact.html
Over the past nine previous years, with all of your support and donations we raised nearly $57,000, which is truly AMAZING. And last year we raised $12,000 ($2,000 over the goal). Thank you all so very much for your continued support. I hope to see the momentum continue to exponentially grow in 2014!
There is absolutely no donation too little - just to know you are thinking of me and my efforts is what really matters to me - and I truly mean that! Your thoughtfulness and encouragement will not go unappreciated.
