Laura's Goal

Email I sent out:

My friend, Laura, and I have taken on an incredible challenge. On October 9-11, we will be walking 60 miles over the course of three days, camping out at night with thousands of other women and men taking this journey with us.

It's for an event called the Breast Cancer 3-Day, which benefits Susan G. Komen for the Cure and the National Philanthropic Trust Breast Cancer Fund. Every advancement in breast cancer research, treatment, education and prevention in the last 25 years has been touched by a Komen for the Cure grant. They are working hard to build a future without breast cancer, and Laura and I plan on raising $4,600 to help bring us closer to that goal.

Please consider making a donation to Laura's walk.  I have fulfilled my $2,300 goal and really want to see Laura fulfill hers as well. Please be sure to donate on Laura's page as an overfill on my goal does not spill into her goal.  Please also ask your employer if they will double your donation with a matching gift.

As many of you are probably aware, I lost my mom to this disease (after a darn good fight ;~)  I follow Fat Cyclist's blog and he just lost his wife.  The list could go on and on... everyone we know has been affected or afflicted.  Please help me in trying to stop this.  I truly believe that with enough research and enough caring, we can stop cancer.

Without a cure, one in eight women in the U.S. will continue to be diagnosed with breast cancer. That's why I'm walking in the 3-Day. Because everyone deserves a lifetime.

Please visit Laura's page HERE to make a donation. If this link doesn't work, you can search for her (Laura Kukich) on the main page or just email me and I will be sure to get you in touch with her.  If you don't want to donate online, please download and print a donation form and mail it to the address on the form. Or you can call 800.996.3DAY to donate over the phone. I would like to see Laura reach her fundraising goal as soon as possible, so please don't delay!

Thank you for taking the time to read this email, and thank you for your support.

P.S. Don't wait - donate today!
Please consider donating to Laura's walk (not mine, please!)  I am so grateful that she stepped up to do this walk with me and for Breast Cancer... please help me show her how great I think she is!
