We have all been touched by cancer in some way. I have several family members and friends who have had the courage to face cancer head on. I see no better reason to be a part of such a powerful event. This past year has been a very different year for my husband and me that I had an opportunity to be blessed and see things in a different way. It is during this time that I have felt led to do more for the community. Participating in events that make a difference in others lives. Giving back. That is why I feel led to be a part of this Challenge to Conquer Cancer. It just feels right. Call it a leap of faith.
On October 18, 2009, the 2009 Challenge to Conquer Cancer Relay Ride will leave Greenville, South Carolina for Austin, Texas. We will ride as a team covering miles and miles of roads until we reach our destination. It will be there that we will join the LiveSTRONG Challenge, the signature event of The Lance Armstrong Foundation. This is event is designed to honor and memorialize cancer survivors.
You can help make a difference. Over 3,500 Americans are diagnosed with cancer each day. Every year, more than one million Americans will be diagnosed with the disease. Please join me as I participate in this significant event to raise awareness about the importance of clinical trials, cancer research and to raise money for cancer advocacy and cancer research. My personal goal is to raise $5000.00 so that the fight against cancer can continue to gain momentum and strength.
All donations are tax-deductible and no amount is too small.
