With two kids, a full time job, and a slew of other things on her plate my wife is one of the busiest people I know. Yet she constantly thinks she could do more…that she *should* do more.
So she’s decided to challenge herself in a very interesting way, by attempting to ride 220 miles from Hershey PA to New York in the course of three days…all in the name of charity. The specific event is called the “Tour de Pink” and it’s designed to benefit the “Young Survival Coalition” (an awesome nonprofit dedicated to the critical issues unique to young women diagnosed with breast cancer).
But to achieve this goal, my wife has to raise at least $2,500 and of course train her butt off.
She’s already got a good start on the training and in fact has already hit the 50% mark on the minimum fund raising goal…but fund raising can always use more help.
So I’m hoping that’s where you can help out and pitch in with at least a small contribution. Giving any amount you feel comfortable with is a HUGE help and really simple, just follow the instructions on her YSC Tour de Pink page:
And just in case you’re interested or want to do more to pitch in yourself, you can learn more about the Young Survival Coalition at http://www.youngsurvival.org
p.s. If you’re wondering “Why YSC?” there’s actually a lot of good reasons, but the biggest for us is simply because we’ve both known a lot of really great people who’ve been affected by Breast Cancer…and not all of thier stories end with a happy ‘cured’ statement like they should.
