Making Strides for the American Cancer Society
For the third year in a row, Travis and I are leading a team in the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk. Last year we raised $500 as a couple, and hope to raise the same this year. Additionally, we are challenging our team to raise $500 between them as well. If we succeed - we will have raised $1,000 for the !
The walk is Saturday October 17th (just one week away!) at Calder Plaza here in Grand Rapids. There are two ways that you can help us MAKE STRIDES for the American Cancer Society...
1) Walk with us! All are welcome! Go to http://main.acsevents.org/site/TR?team_id=502732&fr_id=19845&pg=team and click on "join team" and add each of your family members that will be walking with us as team members. We would love to have you walk with us - and will be hosting a brunch after the walk to celebrate our participation!
2) Donate - and help us raise money for the ACS! Just go to http://main.acsevents.org/goto/joanneroehm2009 and click on "make a gift to support" We would appreciate this so much!
I'm organizationally a little behind on this event this year - but am hoping you can all help me still make it a success and make a difference in the fight against breast cancer. I'm hoping we can still get our team together and raise some $$$ for the ACS in just one short week!
Thank you in advance for supporting us, the American Cancer Society, and MAKING STRIDES!
