Impact, Make One

And that I will! “Impact, Make One” is the slogan for Susan G. Komen’s Race for the cure and this year, in dedication to my grandmother, I am running to raise money for this great cause. I am hopeful for the day that not one more tear is shed by a breast cancer diagnosis. My goal is to raise $1000 for breast cancer and on September 19, 2010, I will join thousands of others playing a part in the annual Komen Maine Race for the Cure®. I am excited to do my part in fundraising for this cause, and of course I get a freebie benefit of getting back into shape as I train for the race.

So many of us know of someone who has been diagnosed with breast cancer and we all know that this disease affects the patients, their families, friends and communities. There are many organizations that raise money for breast cancer causes, however I have chosen Susan G. Komen for the Cure® as they are the world's leading breast cancer organization and they are committed to ending breast cancer forever. If you would like to make a donation on my behalf, you will be supporting local breast cancer screening, treatment, education and outreach along with international research that will lead us to a world without breast cancer.

Would you consider making a donation today? Online donations are simple, and the site is secure. Please go to my fundraising page http://maine.info-komen.org/site/TR?px=7569446&pg=personal&fr_id=1876&et=wTKq-lskiLDWPG6tqSTEPg..&s_tafId=61954&refresh=1
and make a tax-deductible donation online.. The deadline to have my donations collected is Oct 1st.



I am always excited to see how my cloth diapering partners step up to the plate. I am thrilled to announce that Kanga Care will be donating pink (Tulip) Rump•a•rooz® One Size Cloth Diapers to also help raise money for this great cause. How cool is that? They can be purchased for $14.95 each. Click here to purchase.

Thank you in advance for your support in whichever way you deem best! For more information on breast cancer and the Race for the cure, click here.
