Get out and walk

On October 2nd-4th, thousands of women and men will unite and walk 60 miles through San Francisco. The Breast Cancer 3-Day is a weekend of hope, as we honor lives lost, celebrate survivors, promote breast cancer research and help bring breast cancer care to those who so desperately need it.

In honor of my mother, who is a survivor of breast cancer, I have committed myself to walk and have agreed to raise a minimum of $2,300 to help fight breast cancer. Net proceeds from the Breast Cancer 3-Days benefit Susan G. Komen for the Cure to fund breast cancer research, education, screening and treatment programs, as well as the National Philanthropic Trust Breast Cancer Fund, to provide an endowment for breast cancer initiatives. In order to reach my goal, I am asking for your support in the form of a monetary donation.

Unfortunately, breast cancer has become an all too common occurrence among women and men throughout the world. Now is the time to take action to help end this disease. The more funds that I raise, the sooner we can end this fight. More information about the Breast Cancer 3-Day can be found at or by calling 800.996.3DAY; I can be reached at 916-786-8178. Thank you for your support and consideration and please forward this to anyone that is interested.
