      The Making Strides Against Breast Cancer 5k Walk

      I know this is WAY in advance, but it's a cause near and dear to me, and I wanted to see if anyone was interested in joining me for the walk. I'm on a team already, so if you'd like to join the team, let me know! It's SO much fun. They provide breakfast in the morning, and lots of fun and entertainment after the walk. I've been doing it for a few years now. It is a fundraiser, but you can raise as little as $25 dollars or more if you would like. I sent a letter out to all of my contacts last week, and I already have $50! Let me know if you're interested by RSVPing for the walk. I'll contact you after and give you more specifics on how to register! Here is my team information and my personal page: More Information: About Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Making Strides Against Breast Cancer is the American Cancer Society's premier event to raise awareness and funds to fight breast cancer. But it’s more than just the name of a walk – it describes the amazing progress we’re making together to defeat this disease. Since 1993, 4 million walkers have raised more than $280 million through Making Strides. In 2007 alone, nearly 500,000 walkers across the country collected more than $50 million to help fight breast cancer. Making Strides is your opportunity to honor breast cancer survivors, educate women about breast cancer prevention and early detection, and raise funds and awareness to help achieve a day when no one will have to hear the words “You have breast cancer.” The majority of Making Strides events take place during Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October. They are typically five kilometers (3.1 miles) or five miles in length. The American Cancer Society has a presence in more than 3,400 communities across the country and is the only organization available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to help people touched by cancer. Breast cancer is the number one reason people call the Society. When you support Making Strides, you are helping the Society seek better ways to prevent, detect, and treat breast cancer, as well as provide help and hope to people facing the disease. Sign up online for Making Strides and enjoy a day of exercise, camaraderie, entertainment, food, and most importantly, a chance to honor someone you love who's been affected by this disease. Together, we will make strides toward a future where breast cancer will no longer threaten those we love!
