Have you ever had one of those moments or perhaps even a day, where you sit back and say to your self..."That just opened MY eye's" Well that has happened to me several times in my life! This last time was just a day ago. As many of you know I have a "soft" spot in wanting to help find a CURE for Cancer. I have always felt a need to really DO something. I found that running has allowed me do just that. My goal for this year is to finish 11 events in the year 2011. Many of these events I choose because they sponsor a Charity that deals with helping to find a CURE. To me it doesn't matter what type of Cancer someone has. What matters is in finding a CURE for ALL cancer. I wear PINK not only because it is my favorite color. I wear it because it is also the Color for HOPE.
Here is where I have had my eye's OPENED.....
|*Notice how BIG my eye's are?!|
A VERY talented, driven, wife, mother and friend of mine has Brain cancer. I just learned that the "Ribbon Color" for that type of cancer is GREY , I had it in my little mind that it doesn't matter what color of ribbon I choose to wear. To ME every color is represented under the big "umbrella" of the PINK . *HOPE = PINK RIBBON*
So please know that about me! I CARE and RUN for ALL CURES of CANCER!
I just pray that everyone will donate and give to any charity with this same goal in mind.
*Now with that in mind....there a few fund raiser's going on to help in the fight. I am currently trying to raise $2300.00 for the Susan G. Komen foundation 3-Day for the Cure.
Also Bloggers Bake for Hope is having a Bake Sale May 4-7th. * I have donated to bake a pan of Snickerdoodle Blondie's as well as 2 dozen Banana Whoopie Pies.
Go donate! Open your eye's to helping others!
