In honor of my Mom, who passed away a couple of years ago after a 3 month battle of very aggressive colon cancer, I’m participating again in 2014 the Seattle Get Your Rear In Gear 5K Run/Walk, an event to benefit the Colon Cancer Coalition. I want to make a difference for the thousands of people in my community touched by colon cancer. The funds I raise will stay right here, helping with prevention, early detection and treatment for this disease. My hope and goal is to spare other people from the pain caused by losing a loved one due to colon cancer.
Last year, thanks to so much support, I raised almost $600. This year, since this may be the last year I can physically participate due to my own illness, I want to really go for it! My personal goal is to raise at least $700, but I would be absolutely ecstatic if I hit $1,000!! Any amount helps, even $1.00 would be greatly appreciated.
Please donate and help support my efforts to build hope and beat colon cancer! Thank you in advance for your help.
This one’s for you, Mother!
