What are you doing July 20, 2013? Supporting cancer? Yeah, that’s what I thought.
On July 20, my husband Kris will paddle 20+ miles as a fundraiser for the John Wayne Cancer Foundation. The paddle is known as the Blackburn Challenge, and it’s an open water circumnavigation of Cape Ann, Mass. He is doing it for himself (Kris was diagnosed with testicular cancer in 2011- it was successfully removed later that year), his grandfather (pictured at left, with Kris), his grandmother and everyone else affected by cancer. Learn more, and donate to Kris, here.
My cousin Heather has organized the third annual Dan Duggan’s Ride to Find the Answer for Cancer, a motorcycle ride through scenic New Hampshire, for July 20. In 2010 my uncle, Dan Duggan (pictured at right), passed away after an eight year battle with prostate cancer. Since Heather organized the first Ride, they have raised more than $11,000 for cancer research in Uncle Danny’s name. Learn more, and view donation and registration details for the ride, here.
Cancer is tough. Do your part to help defeat it.
