Default Breast Cancer 3-day Walk

Hey Girls, first off I have to say I'm sorry for breaking the rules but I figure this would be a good way to get the most exposure for this cause.My name is Larry Gomez (yes I know I'm a guy)

I just wanted to take a few minutes to write this thread and ask the ladies ofcbrforums for their help. On April 24, 2008 my girlfriend lost her mother to breast cancer. And In her last days I had the privilege of being by her bedside to spend time with her. We talked, cried, and even laughed. It was there that she lay when I made her some promises. And in one of those promises I have taken on an incredible challenge. On November 21-23, my girlfriend and I will be walking 60 miles over the course of three days, camping out at night with thousands of other women and men taking this journey with us. It's for an event called the Breast Cancer 3-Day, which benefits Susan G. Komen for the Cure and the National Philanthropic Trust Breast Cancer Fund. Every advancement in breast cancer research, treatment, education and prevention in the last 25 years has been touched by a Komen for the Cure grant. They are working hard to build a future without breast cancer, and we plan on raising $5200 to help bring us closer to that goal.Without a cure, one in eight women in the U.S. will continue to be diagnosed with breast cancer. That's why I'm walking in the 3-Day. Because everyone deserves a lifetime.Just follow the link below to visit my personal fundraising webpage and please consider making a donation of any amount possible, any amount helps no matter how big or small, and If you can't give at this time of course we understand. http://08.the3day.org/site/TR/Walk/S...&team_id=14191You can also make donations through www.The3Day.org, or if you don't want to donate online, you can download and print a donation form and mail it to the address on the form. Or you can call 800.996.3DAY to donate over the phone.Thank you for taking the time to read this thread, and thank you for your support.Sincerely,Larry Gomez & Courtney Johnson

I'd have to say I thought about deleting that post, but then realized it was actually worth it to leave up. Good cause.
