Going After a Killer

The killer: Cancer

I'm braving a chilly October morning to do a 5k to fight cancer and I need your help. I'm asking for donations. My goal this year is $500 between online and cash contributions. 

Shirt I made up a few years ago.

What charity are you raising money for?
American Cancer Society

Why do you do the walk for ACS?
To raise money for the Hope Lodges. 

What is a Hope Lodge?
Hope Lodges are set up near hospitals so patients from out of town can stay there for free while getting treatment. Saving the patients and their families stress and money.

Do you have personal reasons to walk?
I've had family and friends die from various forms of cancer. I've also had ones that were able to beat it! I want to help more people defeat this ugly disease. 

In the past you have incentives in place to raise money. Are you doing that again this year?
In a way. My plan this year is to wear a knee length tutu. If you donate and would like me to walk in honor or in memory of someone, I will write their name on my tutu in sparkly paint.

My online fundraising page is here. Please donate. Even if it's only a $1! Every dollar counts. If you can't donate, please share this post.

Thank you!!
