A Different Kind of Mission Trip…
So, apparently I can’t fast from blogging more than 48 hours.
Greetings friends. I pray you have all had a Merry Christmas and are ready for the brand new year ahead of us.
I wanted to take a moment and share with you something I am really looking forward to in 2009. Instead of an oversees mission trip, I have decided to participate in The Breast Cancer 3-Day on October 23-25, 2009 in Atlanta, GA.
The Breast Cancer 3-Day is a 60-mile walk spanning over the course of three days. I must raise a minimum of $2300 in order to participate and am asking that you please consider supporting me financially. Net proceeds benefit Susan G. Komen for the Cure and National Philanthropic Trust, funding important breast cancer research, education, screening, and treatment.
But I must also ask that you please pray for me. Between now and October, I will continue to focus on my health – to help me be the most ready I can be. Most of you know that I have been doing Weight Watchers over the last 3 months and have lost 20 pounds to date. I will need your prayer support to keep me going and be ready for the endurance this 60-mile event will ask of me.
I also want to ask that you consider joining my team and walking with me. I have named my team, “Bloggers for Boobies.” I know, a little corny… but how cool would it be to have a team of bloggers walking together against Breast Cancer? AND even if you’re not a blogger — please still consider joining me.
PS. Got any leftover cash? I know… silly question. But this Wednesday is December 31 and if you would like to make a tax-deductible donation in 2008… you have until Wednesday to do so. Donate now.
