You can cure cancer!

Last year I walked 60 miles for the Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure in Atlanta.  It was amazing!  I wrote about it here.  I had really bad blisters but I walked all 60 miles with my friend Leanne.  Then I told my whole family about it.  And they signed up to walk in Dallas in 2011.


Except now we all have to raise $2300 - each.  That's $13,800 total.  Eek!

And life got in the way for several of us.  Big time.

So now we're three months from the event and way behind on our fundraising.  We're in serious need of donations but we're also in serious need of fundraising ideas!  Do you have any tried and true ideas?  Anything that might help us raise $13,800 for cancer research including the research that's being done on our family (yes, my family is the subject of a cancer study)?

We're also behind on our training.  I blame it on the 110 degrees and the fact that we all moved within the past month.  So, it's time to get going!  We have three months to make it happen! 

If you're interested in donating, you can do that here.  Or send the link to your friends!

  1. I bet you, your mom, and aunts/friends/my sister could do a kickin' girls night out event! Go to an area with lots of bars/restaurants and wear pink. Make a commotion! Send info to bars and restaurants before offering them a chance to pitch in - see if they will match what you earn, etc. It's a fun night that will make you some money!
