Weekend To End Breast Cancer

Journal Entry: Wed May 28, 2008, 7:15 PM


Introduction

For the past 6 years our very own Moonbeam13 has been involved in supporting and raising money for The Weekend To End Breast Cancer event in Toronto.

She has done this in a fairly quiet and discreet way so we felt it was time to shed a bit more light on what exactly she does for this great cause.

To give a bit of background, in the past 5 years this organization has raised over 70 million dollars in donations and through this has made some landmark strides in advancing the research on breast cancer, which claims the lives of close to 50,000 women a year and about a quarter million women diagnosed per year. You can read about how the money has been allocated here

This money does make a big difference in helping with in depth gene studies and creating specialized programs for people diagnosed with the disease.


The Weekend To End Breast Cancer takes place all across Canada. In Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Winnipeg, Ottawa, Montreal, and her hometown of Toronto, where for the last 5 years and soon to be 6, she has participated in the 60k walk alongside her mom (mombeam).

Together they have walked 300kms in the fight to end breast cancer (that's 193 miles for you Americans)

To participate in the walk, each person must raise $2000 to qualify and that is no easy task in and of itself. This year, mombeam and Moonbeam13 will be joined by theblackmass as well, so that's $6000 in total they need to raise between them and they need your help!



This year the event takes place September 5th-7th, so the time to help is now!

So how can can you help? Read on!

Well, you can add these stamps to your journal with a link back to this article for starters.

:star:How Do I Donate? Donations are the most important thing you can do here, so to sponsor:

:pointr: Moonbeam13 - this link

:pointr: mombeam - this link

:pointr: theblackmass - this link


and follow the simple instructions there!

Make sure to leave your deviantART name so they know who to thank, unless you prefer to remain anonymous of course. Please also remember that the three of them are a team and we all individually have to hit $2000 to participate, so spread it around :heart:

If you would rather use paypal you can make a paypal donation to mohitoman@gmail.com


Other Ways To Show Support Dye your hair pink, wear something pink or do a piece of art in pink and upload it to your gallery and link back here so we can spread the word to as many people as possible!


Also, like last year, she will be making memorial shirts eg: WTEBC Shirt Logo by Moonbeam13 so please, note Moonbeam13 your name or the name of someone you love that you'd like them to walk for.

Hi! I think what you're doing is great. My aunt survived breast cancer, and I've lost four members of my family to it, so I know how it goes.

You have my support, and my prayers. :hug:

God bless
