Revlon Run/Walk for Women's Cancers
In May of 2003 I had the opportunity to walk a 5K from Times Square through Central Park in an effort to raise money for the tenacious fight against women's cancers. At the time I was reeling from the passing of my cousin's wife from breast cancer. She was diagnosed while pregnant with her third baby, and she passed away about a year after her birth. I couldn't understand why a mother of three had her life taken and in this way.
Since then I have been affected by several other cases of breast cancer through friends and family. Undertaking this kind of fundraiser every year is a lot for me to do, but it's been 5 years and it's time to raise more money for this worthy cause.
In 2003 my fundraising goal was 500 dollars. I raised 2000.
5 years later, with many more friends in my community offline and on, I feel that we can all pitch in to surpass that goal.
Please donate if you can. Click here for my online fundraising page. If you would rather donate with a check, you may contact me at kristy at kristyglass dot com and we can make arrangements for that as well.
And THANK YOU.
