Margaret's fundraising page for Team Mary Anne
I am participating in the Swedish SummeRun & Walk this year. Proceeds from the run and walk will support the life-saving work of the Rivkin Center. The Rivkin Center is a Seattle-based non-profit that has become a principle catalyst for national and international research efforts aimed at finding solutions to ovarian cancer.
My cousin Mary Anne, who was just the best gal ever, died from ovarian cancer 10 years ago. Members of my family were participants in the Swedish SummeRun & Walk and other fundraisers while Mary Anne was alive (you may remember with fondness the Reebok triathlon for ovarian cancer I participated in wherein I earned the slowest bike numbers ever recorded) and we continue to support it after her death. This year, in her memory, I'm going to participate again.
I started training for this 5K walk in September and I'm pretty sure I'll be in good enough shape by July to complete the walk - my slogan for all the athletic fundraising events that Mary Anne roped me into is "no cardiac event".
My goal is to help end this horrible disease by raising money for the team at Swedish Medical Center (whose work helped Mary Anne) to find a cure. I hope you will support me. Every dollar helps. The "Donate" button is on your right.
Rivkin Center Mission & Vision
To improve women's health by helping them prevent, detect early, and survive ovarian and breast cancer. We envision a world where women live longer and healthier lives because cancers are prevent, caught early, or cured.
Since its establishment in 1996, the Rivkin Center has awarded over $11 million in research grants to scientific investigators around the world, and also supports ovarian and breast cancer education and high-risk early detection screening.
Do not forget to check out the amazing work done by the Rivkin Center - www.rivkin.org.
Peace and Love,
My Personal Web Log
Team Mary Anne is the #1 fundraising team in the Swedish SummeRun & Walk (thank god for the walk part) because you guys are so generous. And, I appear to be the #2 fundraiser. This is awesome sauce!
