Would anyone like to donate to the 2009 Susan G. Komen 3-Day Walk for the Cure?

This year, I'll be participating in a very special event called the Breast Cancer 3-Day.

I'll walk 60 miles over the course of three days with thousands of other women and men. The net proceeds will support breast cancer research, education, screening and treatment through Susan G. Komen for the Cure and the National Philanthropic Trust Breast Cancer Fund.

I've agreed to raise at least $2,300 in donations. So I need your help. Would you please consider making a donation? Any amount, even the smallest amounts help me to reach my goal! Keep in mind how far I'm walking – and how hard I'll have to train. You can give online at www.The3Day.org. Just follow the link below to visit my personal fundraising webpage and make a donation. You can also call 800.996.3DAY to donate over the phone.

The reason that me and my co-workers have chosen to participate in this event, is that in February we lost our boss, co-worker and friend, Bonnie, to this very terrible disease. She was such a wonderful, vibrant, caring person who was taken away from her family entirely too early, as is the case with all women who have passed away from this terrible disease. So, my teammembers and I want to help to do our part to help other families from losing their loved ones to this terrible disease.

According to Susan G. Komen for the Cure, approximately 200,000 American women will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year, and nearly 40,000 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! Also, if you wouldn't mind, could you please invite others to this group (see instructions below), so that the word can be passed around to help my team members and I reach our fundraising goals?

Sincerely,
Monique

P.S.
Ask your employer if they will double your donation through a matching gift program!

For people who have done walks for cancer?

I'm doing a 4 mile walk for cancer but I wanted to know, do people run at these things? Because I'm not a runner myself but I dont want to be the only one walking…

i've done the "walk to end breast cancer" many times (i'm only 13) and there are two categories for running and walking. The people who sign up to run start first and they have their own little lane and then everyone else starts the walk a few moments afterwards. i'm sure you won't be the only one there who's going to be walking.
