Weekend to End Breast Cancer

Thought I’d post the email I just received from Tara’s Dad – he’s going on a walk to raise money for Breast Cancer in a few months. Tara’s Mom Irene of course, is in the middle of chemotherapy right now. Maybe if he raises over $2000 he’ll run the whole way??? Click on the title above for Gene’s personal homepage and to help.

Hi Everyone,

As all of you know Irene was diagnosed with Breast Cancer in December. She has had surgery in January and is currently undergoing Chemotherapy to be followed with Radiation. On August 12-14, 2005 I’ll be participating in a very special event called The Weekend to End Breast Cancer.I’ll walk 60 kilometres over the course of one weekend with thousands of other women and men. The net proceeds will support breast cancer research, treatment, and services through Alberta Cancer Foundation.
I’ve agreed to raise at least $2,000, but I’ve set my personal goal at [$2,000]. So I need your help. Would you please consider making a donation of $100. If you would like to do more or less anything would be appreciate? Use the link at the bottom of this email, and go visit my site – and please take the time to support me. Please keep in mind how far I’m walking – and how hard I’ll have to train.According to the National Cancer Institute of Canada, approximately 20,500 Canadian women will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year, and about 5,400 will die from the disease. That’s why I’m walking so far. To do something bold about breast cancer. I hope that you’ll share this incredible adventure with me – by supporting me in my fundraising efforts.Thank you in advance for your generosity!

Sincerely,Gene
