I am proud to be a 26.2 with Donna The National Marathon to Finish Breast Cancer Ambassador all year, but each October – Breast Cancer Awareness Month, it’s even more special!
In the past two years, you have helped me raise more than $5K toward critical research, care and awareness for the Mayo Clinic & The Donna Foundation, and for that, I cannot thank you enough. Our work to FINISH breast cancer presses on, but I have a dream that together, this is something that can be accomplished in OUR lifetime.
This October, please be mindful of “pinkwashing” – unfortunately, what some companies and brands do to jump on the bandwagon, yet neglect to actually contribute to the cause. There are many worthwhile charities – just be mindful 🙂
If finances do not allow you to contribute money, consider donating your time and skills to local organizations you trust, or better yet, make plans to join us to run or volunteer at the 2016 26.2 with DONNA event – AmbKrissy16 will take $5 off your entry fee to the half or full – and remember, this year, there is an exciting “Fundraiser Experience” that allows you to run FREE with the commitment to raise at least $1,000!
Thank you again for all of your support!
