Two years ago, I ran in the National Race to End Women’s Cancer with my brother-in-law, Ben, and my sister-in-law, Trina. It was a great and gratifying experience. I ran with a sign on my back to honor women who have had women’s gyn cancers. And together, we raised over $10,000.
At that time, I promised I wouldn’t ever ask for so much money again, as I know that many of you gave and gave big! Thank you again.
So this year, while I have a modest fundraising goal, my emphasis is on getting YOU to sign up and participate in #Move4Her! Because you don’t have to travel to DC, or train, or even run a 5k, this should be easy.
Please join my team, moving to honor women and families with Lynch Syndrome, a genetic condition which often results in a very high likelihood of developing endometrial and ovarian cancers in women and colon cancer, as well.
Here’s what you do have to do: 1) sign up before the end of August and use this code Host-Team10 for $10 off.
2) Decide how you are going to #Move4Her on October 18, at 11:00 am Mountain Time. Of course, you can move in any way you like — run, hike, bike, walk, yoga, paddle — just try to do it for an hour in honor of women you know and those you don’t.
3) Raise money or not! We hope you will, but mostly we hope you’ll #Move4Her!
In addition, the Foundation for Women’s Cancer has arranged a YouTube broadcast for those at home. In this broadcast, trainer Kathy Smith will guide you through an hour of walking based fitness in front of your TV or computer. This broadcast makes it easy for anyone to participate even if the weather is bad, or we’re all stuck in our homes again (please, no!).
As my cancer stemmed from Lynch Syndrome, I am especially honored to include women and men with Lynch Syndrome in their families in this effort.
Thank you so very much!
Proceeds from #Move4Her benefit the Foundation for Women’s Cancer (FWC), an organization close to my heart. The FWC is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to supporting research, education, and public awareness of gynecologic cancers – cervical, ovarian, uterine/endometrial, vaginal and vulvar cancer. Together, we’re striving to #EndWomensCancer and #Move4Her.
