Just as one fund drive ends another is taken up.
On September 11, 2011 the Southeastern Colorado affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure will be holding their "Race for the Cure" event in Colorado Springs, Colorado. This race includes a 5K Run, a 5K Walk and a 1K Family Walk. Both run and walks will be held at the Garden of the Gods Park and Rock Ledge Ranch. If you are interested, you can regester and find answers HERE.
For those who would rather sit this one out, better yet pull up the covers and sleep right through it, there is a Sleep-in for the Cure on the day of the run / walk.
There will also be a Pooches in Pink on Saturday, the day before the race. You can read all about that HERE.
I should think about now, you are probably wondering why I (residing in Rhode Island) have posted about an event taking place in Colorado. Well, Colorado Springs is not only where my daughter and her fiancé live, it is also where my husband and I hope to retire. And lest that not be enough of a reason, Race for the Cure is a fun way to raise money and awareness to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure and the fight against breast cancer.
With 122 local affiliate offices across the country, and more than $1 billion invested in finding the cure and educating people world wide, Susan G. Komen for the Cure is a world leader in the fight against breast cancer. You can read more about Susan G. Komen and the cause HERE.
My Mary Kay consultant, Heather, has registered to walk in the 5K and is collecting donations. If you would care to contribute to the cause by sponsoring Heather with a donation you can do so HERE.
Heather has pledged all profits she makes, from all sales of Mary Kay Ultimate Mascara, from now until September 11, 2011.
To purchase an Ultimate Mascara, click HERE or click on the mascara above. Heather will donate her entire profit from the sale.
This is a fabulous offer....
With your purchase you will be helping Heather reach her goal, supporting the fight against breast cancer and rewarding yourself with one of the best selling mascaras out there.
Thank you for stopping by
Have a beautiful day
