Race for the Cure

On September 25 I’m running again in the Komen New York City Race for the Cure. Want to support me? The easiest way to do so is to go here and make a donation electronically.

A donation of $50 is the smallest of the pre-set levels, but you can make a smaller donation too. After you click on the “Make a gift!” link—just beneath the red thermometer—and come to the page that says “Please pick a contribution level,” down at the bottom of the radio buttons for donation amount options is one that says “Other Amount.” Every pledge of any size counts.

If you don’t want to make a donation on the Web, or don’t have a credit card, you can also sponsor my run with a check. Just make it out to to Komen Greater New York City, making sure to credit my name in the memo line, and mail it to:

Komen Greater New York City Race for the Cure
PO Box 9223, GPO
New York, NY 10087-9223

Here’s an illustration that I borrowed from a Komen pledge form PDF:

You can even support my run with cash if you prefer. Just give me the donation the next time you see me in person, and I’ll hand the money over to the Komen Foundation folks when I sign in the morning of the race.

I’ve set my goal at $550, because that’s how much ten super amazing lovely friends helped me raise last year. It’d be awesome to meet that goal this year or even surpass it. Money for education, screening, treatment, and research saves lives. Thanks for your support.
