Update: Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure

Aloha!

Today I made my matching donation to Susan G. Komen Hawaii’s Race for the Cure. Thanks to family and friends who donated a total of $175 towards this worthy cause. With my matching donation of $175, we raised $350!! Mahalo to Jerry R, Shelley O, David E, Janet S, Joyce Y, Tom M, and Lori M for your generosity and support!

Original Post:

I am finally ready to participate in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure for the very first time. Seven years after completing active treatment for breast cancer, I am looking forward to celebrating life with my sister-survivors. Believe me, it’s been a long journey to get to this point.

I humbly ask for your support to help me reach my goal of raising $200 (increased from $125) for Susan G. Komen Hawaii. Seventy-five percent of the money raised will remain here in the islands. In addition, I will match each donation (up to $200 total) from the proceeds of my book “If I Fall Apart.” That’s $400 to help find a cure for cancer, but I can’t do it without your help. If 20 people donate just $10 (tax-deductible!), I will exceed my goal!

Please check out my participant page as you consider making a donation to support this great cause: http://hawaii.info-komen.org/site/TR/RacefortheCure/HNL_HawaiiAffiliate?px=19131361&pg=personal&fr_id=4365

If you prefer not to make a donation online, please contact me at whiteginger11@gmail.com.

Mahalo for your kind consideration!

Karen

P.S. – Many thanks to those who already donated to the cause!
