Why I Am participating in the Sole Burner event for the American Cancer Society:
On May 13th my family is participating in the SoleBurner, through the American Cancer Society. The SoleBurner has taken on a very different meaning for me recently, - my Dad passed away from this terrible disease. He left behind his sweet grandsons who love and miss him dearly, one who never got to meet him. Ironically, my Dad was always the first one to make a donation to my fundraiser for this event. He would always ask, "Are you doing that cancer walk again this year, if so, I will donate". Witnessing someone you love endure all they do when a cancer diagnosis comes, is something one cannot fully describe. If you can, help make a difference today, to help find a cure, by contributing to this event. My employer is matching contributions up to $2,000! Together, we will find a cure.
For the first time in history, the American Cancer Society's mission is at risk - including their ability to fund cancer research. The American Cancer Society needs to be here to help patients face cancer with comprehensive support, but they need our help to be able to do so. Every dollar will truly make a difference right now.
Taking part in this event gives me the chance to make a difference and honor those touched by cancer by raising funds for groundbreaking research and services for people dealing with cancer. I'm also participating to inspire hope for those facing the disease and raising money for the American Cancer Society's event to help save lives from cancer. I hope you'll consider signing up too.
Funds raised support cancer patient programs and groundbreaking research that can help save lives. This event also celebrates over 15.5 million cancer survivors nationwide. 15.5 MILLION. That's huge. That's why I'd love your support. Will you join me? And if you can't would you be so kind as to make a donation?
