Pink for a Cause. Let's Help Fund Breast Cancer Research Together!

Before you start reading, I must tell you that this post first appeared at Run Find Your Happy Pace, and was written by my good friend Darlena. She has been organizing this amazing Fundraiser for months!

So, without further ado, here is Darlena's post:

Hello Everyone I am excited to bring you my latest adventure…..
I am raising money for Breast Cancer Research in honor of several family members and friends.  Recently Breast Cancer has hit my family, once again, particularly close to home.  I decided that instead of sitting on the sideline (because what good does that do?)  I would  commit to raise money so that maybe someday Breast Cancer will no longer be such a scary thing.  I would love for all our daughters and future generations to not have to worry about things like this.
Therefore I am so honored and overwhelmed by the wonderful support I have received from my friends in the  running community in regards to my fundraising efforts.  I also want to remind all the women out there to do their monthly exam, it takes a few minutes but it could just save your life.  Recently I posted on my Facebook page about going to get my mammogram.  In case you missed it here it is :)  Get ready for a little TMI:
What I had didn’t  post a few days later was I was called back for another visit.  Scary since my family has very recently been touched by Breast Cancer once again.
I am happy to say everything was fine, but I will be much more diligent about self exams in the future.  For ladies my age I urge you to go get your mammogram if you haven’t already this year.  
And for those younger ladies here, please make sure to do your monthly self-exam!   Guys remind your wives, girlfriends, sisters etc to get theirs too!
OK that would be my PSA for the day ;)
So on with the fundraising!!!  There are sooooo  many cool prizes to be won!  I will be offering chances thru Papal in order to raise money.  I am proud to announce the following sponsors for this event.
One chance –  $3
Three (3) Chances for $5
Five (5)  Chances for $10
Please click on the appropriate Picture Button below which will bring you to Paypal.
Thanks so much for your support!
I will run this thru the end of May.  Winners will be announced in the beginning of June.
