What am I doing?
I'm riding to support the North Texas Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure because I want to make a difference in the fight against breast cancer. Please help me reach my fund-raising goal by making a tax-deductible donation today. Our goal is to have 150 riders participate and to raise $100,000. Our ride will be on October 30, 2010, with all donations received by October 28, 2010. Donations can be made online via credit card or offline via check and cash. Please make checks payable to: "Komen North Texas". All donations are tax-deductible.
You may donate online with your credit card by clicking the 'Support' button at the top of this page. Your support helps us get another step closer to a world without breast cancer.
Your breast health?
The greatest risk factors for breast cancer are being female and growing older. Breast cancer knows no boundary, be it age, gender, socio-economic status or geographic location. One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. That's one in eight within your company, school and organization!
The key to survival is early detection. Three simple steps for early detection are regular mammograms, clinical exams and breast self-exams. Remember, breast cancer affects more than just the patient; friends and family need support, too.
What does Komen do?
For more than 25 years, Komen for the Cure has played a critical role in every major advance in the fight against breast cancer transforming how the world talks about and treats this disease, and helping to turn millions of breast cancer patients into breast cancer survivors.
Up to 75% of the next proceeds from the North Texas Affiliate fund-raisers stay in Collin, Denton, and Grayson counties to fund breast health education, treatment and screening for un/under insured men and women. Twenty-five percent of the net proceeds go to fund scientific research through the Global Scientific Research Program.
Over the next 25 years, an estimated 25 million women around the world will be diagnosed with breast cancer if we don't find a cure. Komen will not stop until we discover and deliver the cures. That's our promise.
We Will Find the Cure!
Thanks for all of your support and helping me make a difference!
