Overwhelmed with Thanks to all of you!

With the AVON Walk just 10 days from now, I want to take this moment to thank all of the people who have been so supportive and encouraging as I have prepared for this event. I am especially blown away by the generosity of so many who have chosen to pledge their financial support towards the research and eventual cure for breast cancer.

As of today, your generous support has raised $2,445.00 to benefit those fighting this disease, and those who are working so hard to find a cure. Your contributions have exceeded my fundraising goal -- something for while I am deeply thankful.

I cannot express how deeply appreciative and honored I am to have such wonderful friends and family who believe in me and in this cause. I thank you from the bottom of my heart; and I will carry your warm thoughts and intentions with me on each mile that I travel on June 2nd and 3rd.

Those who still wish to make a contribution to the fight against breast cancer may still do so. Donations of any amount are all significant in this effort. Thank you all for partnering with me as we strive to END IT once and for all!


Test drive a Cadillac and raise funds for my AVON Walk!

Ever wanted to get behind the wheel of a Cadillac? Maybe a Convertible? Well this is the time! And the best part? Doing so will also contribute to my effort to raise enough funds to participate in the AVON Walk for Breast Cancer this June! So you can test drive a Caddy, and support the fight against Breast Cancer all at the same time!!! It doesn't get any better than that!!!!


On either April 14th or April 21st, anyone can go to one of the participating Cadillac dealerships in the Chicagoland area (bring your family and friends) for a test drive of any new Cadillac and I receive a $50 donation from Cadillac for every person that gets behind the wheel!. I do not have to be there for you to have all the fun! You just have to give them my 6-digit participant number (#241882) at the time of the test drive, then the donation will be allocated to my fundraising account.

So say you go with a bunch of friends. Each of you can take a turn driving the car. If there were four of you, then that would be 4 people Cadillac would make donations for, resulting in a $200 donation towards my fundraising goals! How cool is that!!! Each test driver will receive a receipt validating their test drive. Limit one donation per person, and you must be 18 years of age with a valid driver’s license.
