Thanks to all who attended the event this past weekend at the Blue Martini!!! The rain did delay us a bit getting everyone registered and into the venue, but we finally did...and I hope everyone had a great time. I apologize for any confusion there may have been about the event or the appetizers that weren't served, but I do hope that everyone had a great time. It was an awesome turnout and look forward to the next one!!!
An announcement I did forget to make was about myself, and how over the past few months I have been training with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Team in Training to run a marathon and I'll be running it this weekend at the Rock & Roll Marathon in Seattle WA. I'm not only getting excited but a little scary to the say the least.
Please take 5 minutes to check out my website for updates on how everything has been going over the past few months.
When I decided to take part in this great challenge it was more to get back in shape, but it?s become more than that now. Just a few weeks into training, I found out that my aunt was diagnosed with liver cancer. Now, the focus of LLS is first and foremost the blood cancers; but researchers have said that once the cure for the blood cancers is found, the cure for all other cancers will come soon after!! I've also had some friends and coworkers who suffer from this disease, so I'm running for all of them also!!
Each donation helps accelerate finding a cure for leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma. More than 823,000 Americans are battling these blood cancers today. I am hoping that my participation in Team in Training will help bring them hope and support. All donations are 100% tax-deductible.
I hope that you will make a donation to the cause. And to show that I am fully committed to the organization, I have pledged to donate 75% of my earnings from the Lock & Key Parties this year. Also, anyone who makes a donation will receive a special promo code to receive $10 off their next party!!! And the first 5 people to make a donation of $30 or more, will receive FREE admission for them and a friend to the next Lock & Key Party. Be sure to put in the comments section that you are from my Lock & Key Meet up group!!
Please forward this message to anyone you know who would like to support me and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. On behalf of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, thank you very much for your support and generosity. Together we can all cross the ultimate finish line ? A CURE!!!
