I feel so passionate about Bright Pink because they help women with support, education, and empowerment that are going through ovarian or breast cancer. This is from their website: Bright Pink is the only national non-profit organization focusing on the prevention and early detection of breast and ovarian cancer in young women, while providing support for high-risk individuals.
I joined their Chicago Marathon Team to help raise funds for them. I have never ran in a marathon and never knew how big of a deal it was until I met Bob from Bob San Sushi. I had been keeping up with my training for the Chicago Marathon until my ankle was hurting and was swollen. My doctor wanted me to keep off it for 10 days. I never got back to the regiment of running after that.
I only have less than 4 weeks until the Chicago Marathon (October 13, 2013) and still funds to be raised for Bright Pink. I have a donation site you can check out on Stay Classy. I have been busy getting donations from online vendors for a Bright Pink raffle that will be taking place this Friday at Danny's Pub and Grill.
I was recently on Nacho Mama's Blog Podcast and discussed my marathon goals. I would love for you to listen to my weight loss, Weight Watchers, self esteem, fitness goals, and motivations.
Everyone is invited to come this Friday, September 20, 2013 at Danny's Pub and Grill, 1550 route 59, Naperville, IL after 8pm. My friend Marianne will be hosting Karaoke during this time. There is no cover charge. I will talk about what is Bright Pink, my marathon training, and goals. I will have raffle tickets to purchase and will have drawings through out the night. I titled the night Fabulous Fun Friday to help Bright Pink. Here is the link to my Facebook invite on Gwynspiration.
I really hope you can make it and if you can't please help me spread the word. I am excited to help Bright Pink and have a fabulous fun Friday.
I will have an online raffle for random prizes to win but I'm waiting on another vendor to send some shirts so I can include them in the online raffle. The items will be chosen randomly for a random winner. You wont be guaranteed to win a certain item.
