Climbing for a Cure - For Our Future, And Our Future Generations!
Crazy girl here is up for this challenge! Are you going to support her?
I recently lost a dear friend (Wayne) to cancer. So I'll be climbing the 61 flights of stairs (that is 1,762 steps) in memory of Wayne, my Father, and Sister - all whom lost their battle with Cancer, and in honor of those cancer survivors I know.
I know too many people lost their lives to cancer, or are fighting it, or have fought it. Those who know me, know I’m not a runner, more of a walker. And those who know I walk know I do not like hills or stairs! So here I am, preparing to climb 61 flights of stairs (1,762 steps) on Sunday 21 October, and raise money for cancer research to find a cure. This will be my “stairway to heaven” If you are able to, please consider donating to my fundraising cause.
I truly believe that if we find a cure for one type of cancer, they we will find a cure for all other types of cancer. Until then, it is all about treatment to control it.
On Sunday, October 21, we will participate in Runyon Up, the first charitable stair climb to be held at Salesforce Tower – the tallest building in San Francisco – all in support of cancer research.
100% of the money we raise will be used by the Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation to fund innovative research by today's most brilliant young scientists, who are racing to find the causes and cures for all types of cancer.
Please make a donation that supports our climb, and help Damon Runyon scientists reach new heights in the fight against cancer. Remember, if your company has a donation matching program, please use it. This will double your donation.
Additionally, one of our generous event donors (a private foundation that prefers to remain anonymous in its charitable endeavors) is challenging us to raise as much money as possible and has agreed to match 1:1 all first-time donations made in support of Runyon Up. This means that if you have never donated to this charity, your donation will be matched! Your donation could potentially be tripled!
You can choose the amount you want to give – all donations are gratefully received!
Thank you for your support.
I stepped up for cancer research!
