Pink Ribbon Run 2006!



I'm excited to announce that I'll be running my first race ever next month! Today I signed up for the Pink Ribbon Run, sponsored by the
Breast Cancer Coalition of Rochester. Its a 5K race on Mother's Day (May 14). I just started running a couple of weeks ago, and I'm excited to train so that 5K will be a piece of cake by next month!!! haha thats a lot easier to type then actually do though.

As part of the event, I pledged to raise money. People can make donations on my behalf-- E
very dollar raised stays in the Rochester community to benefit the lives of those impacted by breast cancer. The mission of BCCR is to make eradication of breast cancer a priority through education and advocacy; to empower women and men to participate fully in decisions relating to breast cancer; to provide support to those coping with a breast cancer diagnosis; and to promote and focus research into the cause, prevention, treatment, and cure of breast cancer. This will help so many people in our own community. Any amount you can give is great; I just appreciate your support.

Whatever you can give will help! I truly appreciate your support and will keep you posted on my progress.

Thanks!
Julie Q

the altruistic champion of humankind that i am, i will gladly pledge 10% of my earnings to your cause. unfortunately for you and the breast cancer research community, 10% of my earnings amounts to roughly 50 dollars.
