For anyone who has wondered, "what can I do to make a difference in this world?" here is your answer.
In an effort to raise support and awarness, I will be following Michelle as she prepares to run her marathon. We will submit weekly updates on her training and fund raising efforts. If you would like to support Michelle (whether with monetary donations, or kind words) follow the links at the end of the letter.
My name is Michelle. I am training to race in a marathon (yep, 26.2 miles) for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society to help find cures for blood cancers and support the hundreds of thousands of patients battling these diseases.
Over the past year, I've had the chance to get to know many blood cancer patients, some in grade school, high school, college, and senior citizens, all of whom are amazingly positive and eager to support others who are newly-diagnosed with leukemia, lymphoma or myeloma. They tell me about how sick they were with treatments, the tiredness and the body changes, but they always think more about others and how they can bring hope to others in similar situations. I'm doing this race for them and would really appreciate your help in getting to my ultimate goal of $4,000. My first step is to have $1,000 raised by March 27th, 2005.
I will take any and all donations, but please consider a donation of $100 or more. All donations are 100% tax-deductible!!
Kindly forward this to message to your friends, family, neighbors, co-workers, teachers etc.
