    Default Help me raise money for cancer research!

    Hey all. I'm taking a break from posting the jokes that I hope you are all enjoying and learning the ins and outs of maintaining my sandwich maker from Haze to ask you all for help.

    A few years ago, both my mother in law and my mother were diagnosed with breast cancer. I had obviously heard of and knew people who had been diagnosed before, but none of them had hit quite this closely to home. I felt pretty helpless and wanted to be able to do something to help. It was at this time that a friend of ours introduced me to a group called the Huntsman Hometown Heroes. This is a group of people who got together to raise funds and awareness for cancer research while training for marathon/half-marathons. I had never done this before in my life (and honestly never thought I could) but I looked at what my moms were going through and thought it would be a way that I could help give back. Last April I successfully completed my first half-marathon. I wasn't the best or the fastest and there were so many times that I wanted to quit, but I would just stop and think about what I was running for. I was running in honor of my moms and everyone else out there who might benefit from further cancer research. After completing the half-marathon, I also joined a bike ride called the Hunstman 140. (read more about it here)

    This year (and as long as I am able) I continue training and raising money to help research cancer. I will again be running in the Salt Lake Half Marathon. I am also probably adding my first Triathlon later this summer. And I will do it all under the Huntsman Hometown Heroes banner.

    One of the things I like best about raising money for The Huntsman Cancer Center is that 100% of the money donated goes directly to research. The running of the center itself is all funded directly by the Huntsman family.

    So, long story short, I am asking any of you who may feel so inspired to donate. You can donate directly to my fund-raising page here. No amount is too small (or too big!) And for those who wonder, I don't touch any of this money, it all goes directly to the center. I also get nothing directly out of this fund-raising (other than the satisfaction of knowing that I am helping raise money to help eradicate cancer) This is something that I strongly believe in as I believe that I have been blessed with family and good fortune and I believe it is my duty as a human being to do what I can in order to give back.

    Whether or not you decide to donate to my page or event, I encourage you to get out there and see what you can do to give back, raise money, or fight for something you believe in. We're all in this together.

    Thanks for your time!

    And now back to the daily jokes!

    I will do this. I will spread the word too. I am hoping mine does not come down with it.

    A little more than a month left until I run. I'd really love to see some support from my peeps on the 4. This money goes 100% to cancer research! Let's come together and help eradicate this disease.

    All of the donation information is in the link in my signature. I don't touch any of the money, it goes directly to the Huntsman Cancer Institute. Every little bit helps!

    Cheers!

    Have you tried putting the word out in the charity section here yet? That may increase traffic.

    Also, bump for a good dude.

    Ah. I think the Charity section wasn't up when I started this thread. Can you move it there for me Haze buddy?
