For the second year in a row, the CFI Portland team will be walking in the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's annual fundraising event. Last year we raised almost $6,300 for life-saving cancer research and help for families affected by blood cancers, and were the #3 Friends and Family team for the 2012 Portland Walk. Together, we can raise even more this year!
This is a great opportunity for our group to join together in a community outreach project, help raise money for lifesaving research, and raise awareness for nontheist charitable giving. Our team is part of the larger Foundation Beyond Belief (FBB) team, whose goal is to raise half a million U.S. dollars for the fight against cancer. Helping us to reach our goal is the Stiefel Freethought Foundation, which has pledged to match every donation we bring in, dollar-for-dollar, up to $250,000. It is time to rally behind something big that reflects our reason-based values and the things we believe in: the healing power of scientific research, education, and compassionate patient services.
For more information about our team, you can visit and "Like" our Facebook team page:CFI Warriors - FBB or contact our Team Co-Captains, Erin Mueller and Sara Wilkison at [masked].
