On Sunday, August 12th, we (13 of us this year) will participate in the 4th annual Damon Runyon 5K at Yankee Stadium. This is an innovative event that supports a great cause. All money raised – 100% of all donations – will go to cutting-edge cancer research for all types of cancer. This research is carried out by brilliant young scientists selected and funded by the Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation. Last year, we raised nearly $1,800 and ranked 32nd out of 608 teams. This year, we’re 86th out of 557 teams and we’re trying to inch up in the standings!
Please sponsor us and make a donation (of any size!) to the Foundation. Each of us on the team has a quota we must meet. To help my teammates, please visit our team page http://Runyon5K2012.kintera.org/cpt2012, and pick the one who seems to need the most help and make your donation through them.
Thank you for your support. Anyone and everyone can be touched by this disease. But, we can fight back and your support will really make a difference.
