We need your support!

I know a lot of my friends and family just got this in an email, but for those I don't have email addresses for or those I forgot to add to the distribution list, read it here. :)

The kids and I are going to participate in Komen Portland Race for the Cure® on September 20th, 2009. We will be walking in the 5K walk and Robert's mom, Barbara will be joining us. In addition to us walking with the thousands others we are trying to raise funds to support the fight to save lives and end breast cancer forever. If you are near us, or will be visiting us, I highly recommend participating. Last year was extremely moving and amazing. Survivors get a pink shirt instead of a white one - and there are just way too many pink shirts but at the same time, not enough.

If you would like to participate there are many options. You can do the Adult 5K competitive (chip-timed) run, 5k Walk, 1 Mile Walk, 5k Co-ed Run, or 5k Women's Run. Or, you can participate in the Sleep for a Cure. You will receive an official race T-shirt and a commemorative pin in the mail. Click here for more info and a little video.

Please pass this info around to build support, the team, and get donations!

75% of all funds raised will provide the following services for local women:

*Education about breast cancer and early detection
*Information and support to breast cancer survivors and their families
*Mammograms for the uninsured or underinsured
*Transportation and treatment support for survivors

In addition, 25% of their revenue is combined with Komen Affiliates nationwide, making Komen for the Cure® the largest private funder of breast cancer research in the world! Komen funding has touched every medical advancement related to breast cancer to date!
