*Raising Money for Breast Cancer Research*

I just wanted to let everyone know that I am currently raising money for breast cancer research. I am a member of a team that is participating in the Relay for Life, which is put on by the Canadian Cancer Society. It is an annual event where teams run, walk, or jog 12 hours straight in support of breast cancer research.

The reason I participate is that 3 years ago my girlfriend's mom, Debbie, died of breast cancer, so we do the Relay in memory of her. We participated in the Relay last year and raised $1,000, and hope to raise more this year. I am not asking for large amounts of money, but every little bit helps!

Below is the link for our team. The team is called "Team Debbie" in memory of my girlfriend's mom. On the right side near the top you will see a button that says "Pledge Me". If you would like to donate, please click on this link and it will take you through the steps. Once again, we are not asking for a lot of money, every $2 or $5 or $10 helps!

The Canadian Cancer Society is a registered charity and you will receive a tax receipt for the amount of your donation. Thank you to all those that donate, it is much appreciated and will help fight cancer! :D

I just thought I would post some pictures of my girlfriend and I and part of our team doing the Relay for Life last year. And yes, that is me wearing a T-shirt with a bra on it and carrying a baton with pink flowers coming out the top!

That's a great cause. I'll see if I can donate, my grandmother died of cancer, she died when I was really young but I'm sad that I never really got to know her.

Thank you so much! It really means a lot to my girlfriend and I. Unfortunately, I never got to meet her mom since I've been dating her just over 2 years and her mom died 3 years ago. But I've heard all of the stories, both funny and sad, and I feel almost like I did know her. I'm sure you still have some great memories of your grandma locked away in your memory somewhere!

The Relay for Life is coming up soon ! My team has raised close to $1,000 so far but we need more to reach our goal. If you can, please help, all of the money raised goes towards breast cancer research. Just a reminder that all of the money from online transactions does not pass through me or anyone else first. If you donate it goes straight to the Canadian Breast Cancer foundation, and you will receive a tax receipt from them for the amount of your donation. Thank you to all who donate, your support means more than you can ever imagine to my team and I. :P
