It's Monday, but it's already shaping up to be one of those amazing Chicago weekends! Before the showdown in Chi-Town on Sunday, here is a great ways to kick off your weekend on the right foot and help out a great charity.
This is an amazing opportunity to support a fantastic charity and be show how cancer has had an impact on your life. Besides being a fund raiser, they are also building a work of art to honor the victims and families of this horrible disease.
People attending are asked to bring a photograph that represents how they have been affected by cancer. This picture will be used to complete a special project at the event. The impact of this project will be shaped by the pictures you provide.
My mother died of cancer, which was the catalyst for me to enter the world of endurance sports, to raise money in her honor. Every time I am hurting in a race, I think about the excruciating pain she was in and thousands of others are in because of cancer, and it snaps me back and I keep going "this is not as bad as she had it, you are lucky."
It's a great way to help support a charity and start the weekend off on the right foot.
