In the day-to-day grind of lenders, underwriters and anyone else who attracts my wrath at a particular moment, it’s often easy to forget that there are far bigger things in life … such as life itself.
Next Sunday morning is the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure in downtown Phoenix. I’m extremely happy to say that my wife, kids and I will be walking with my mom and dad through the streets around the capitol complex. Happy, because my mom is herself a breast cancer survivor.
There are many, many ways to support the work of the Komen Foundation above and beyond participating in the walks and the races and I’ll provide yet another one here.
Clicking on this link will take you to a donation page that was set up when I registered for the walk. The fundraising goal that I set is $1,000 – it’s a little lofty, I realize, as it involves my three readers each ponying up $333. (And since one of those readers is my mother and she’s already in the race, I’m afraid it’s all going to fall on the shoulders of my other two – sorry Tyler and whizzer.) I’ve even added a couple of widgets on the side, too, one of which will allow you to see your name in lights. Or at least in pixels.
In all seriousness, it doesn’t matter to me whether you choose to donate on this page or if you’d rather purchase pink ice cream scoops at Fry’s. All I ask is that if you’re able to do so that you do something.
After all, there would be nothing better than for there to no longer be a need for a Breast Cancer Awareness Month, don’t you agree?
