Fundraising update – August 2014

I recently joined a bike ride that will happen on October, 12 and which goal is to raise money for research on melanoma and pancreatic cancer. The event request that you raise at least $50 and I tried to raise a little bit more, $500. Well, after a couple of weeks, I am happy to see that the initial goal is already met. I am very thankful to my friends and family that helped me to reach my goal. That means a lot to me and this is definitively a wonderful gift, probably one of the best I got since the last couple of months.

But we can also do better and raise more. So, if you are interested to support me in that effort and help research against melanoma and pancreatic cancer, you can still donate! Please follow the link below and just donate whatever you want. Also, if you prefer to ride with us, please contact me so that you can join our team “In Memory of Beth. Finally, for each person that gives more than $20, I will offer a beer when we have the opportunity to hang out! Hope that, we can share the willingness to fight cancer but also good moments around a beer!

Also, if you donate, please put your name or a nickname so that I can know who donated. The donation system does not send any notification and does not indicate the identity of the donator if they do not put a name of the donation page. As for now, there are two anonymous donations and, even if I cannot put a name on them, I want to let them know that I am very grateful for their support.

 

Cheers!

Riding for a cause, support research to end cancer

The idea of running for raising funds for a cause crossed my mind several times during the past months. Having fun is something, hearing people that your story is inspiring others is great but, what about trying to get attention to raise money for a good cause? After all, many folks donate to charities, non-profit associations and other initiatives without a reason. So, they might be interested to donate when somebody is supporting such a cause.

 

321event

 

Some days ago, my partner in crime told me about an event called 321 ride and proposes a 62 miles bike ride from Connelsville to Pittsburgh and aims at raising money for cancer research. The title is clear: “Ride to end melanoma and pancreatic cancer”. When registering, you are asking to raise at least $50. This was then a good initiative to start my first fund raiser and see how good I can do. The initial (and minimal) goal was $50 and I will try to raise $500. All profits will benefit the Woiner Foundation.

If you want to support the research against melanoma and pancreatic cancer, please go to my fundraiser page and consider donating. Every penny counts and if you do not have money, a big smile will already be more than enough. And if you are around the Pittsburgh area and want to bike in October, you can also join the fun! Check out the event, there are other distances: a family-friend 7 miles or a long 25-miles on the trails!

 

MORE IMPORTANT: DONATE AND SUPPORT ME
BECAUSE I SET UP A $500 GOAL INSTEAD OF $50 !!!!
