Long time readers may recall that last fall I participated in a Race for the Cure in Des Moines, IA.
I walked most of it, which was OK (my final “official” time was 49:40). I also managed to raise over $800. I didn’t think that last part was too remarkable (since my race time clearly wasn’t…), but as it turns out, it was: I was one of the top 100 fundraisers last year. Number 36, to be exact. (You can see the list here. It’s a PDF.) Of course, I’m well aware that the only reason I managed this is because my family and friends were so amazing with their support.
Naturally, though, my competitive nature is rearing its head: not only do I want a better race time this year, but I start to wonder: how much can I raise this year?? Can you help me, and more importantly, can you help the Iowa Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure?
(Right underneath the thermometer is a MAKE A GIFT link).
When you click on that link, you can choose one of their “suggested” donation amounts, or you can type in your own: even $5 if that’s all you can afford.
I’ll be posting with updates as I get ready to run/walk again this year, and even if you can’t help with a donation, please keep me in your thoughts.
