My Fundraising Page
Aug 14, 2010
Hi everyone! Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my fundraising page. I have decided to once again join the ranks of "the purple people", and train for the January 2011 Disney Half Marathon! This year my goal is $1,750, but I'd really like to raise much more than that.
I know there are probably a lot of people that wonder why on earth I would take on something like this, again. After last year, I wasn't so sure I wanted to make this kind of committment again. I began to think about it again, and little by little, it just started to make sense. I may have met my fundraising minimum last year, but there are still millions of people suffering with cancer. The people that I personally had in my heart when I participated last year are still fighting their battles. There is still work to be done. I may have 2 year old triplets and a fulltime job, but that's no excuse to not want to do more.
We all complain about being too busy and all the other petty things that go on in our lives, but that's nothing compared to what people with cancer go through. These people would easily trade troubles with us if it meant they would be around to see their children graduate high school. I want to continue to help fight this disease. Will you help?
I'll be journaling my experience with Team In Training on my blog Triplets: Who Knew?, so I encourage you to check in and see how it's going. This year, I vow to train a lot more thoroughly than I did last year and I am planning some really fun fundraisers as well! Thank again for visiting, and for supporting this cause!
