On October 1st, I'll be joining a great group of people on a walk to raise money for breast cancer research. The walk is organized by the Terri Brodeur Breast Cancer Foundation, in southern CT. The main reason that I support this organization is because, unlike many other organizations, 100% of the donations they receive go directly to researchers working to find a cure for breast cancer. No part of the donations are used for admin expenses. I'll be doing the full marathon walk - 26.2 miles!
If you would like to donate, follow the link below. You can sponsor me by typing "Heather" in the space for frist name and "b" in the space for last name. I'm the only one that will come up. you'll also find a lot of other information about the organization on the website.
Whether or not you choose to donate, please wish for good weather on October 1st. It's a long, long walk when it's pouring rain.
Many thanks to all.
