Cancer - the Great Equalizer
Hi fellow swimmers, supporters of swimmers, friends, allies and general all around good folks ---
This is a very belated and thus more urgent than ever shout out to you all about the 11th Annual Cap2K on May 4, sponsored by Howdy Honda and benefitting the Prostate Cancer Foundation and Us TOO International. This year, we have renamed our team Team Larry in honor of our dear friend and lane mate Larry Bugen, who has been battling this disease for over seven years.
Prostate cancer is the most common non-skin cancer in America, affecting 1 in 6 men. A man is 35% more likely to be diagnosed with prostate cancer than a woman is to be diagnosed with breast cancer. We don’t want ANY cancer to afflict ANY one of us but we aren’t there yet and this campaign is one step of many to STOP cancer.
Because I’ve been sitting on my butt, my personal campaign to raise money is behind. PLEASE make up for my laziness and ACT NOW by contributing to the Howdy Honda Cap 2k TODAY. Here’s how:
1. Making a tax-deductible donation to my fundraising team TEAM LARRY
2. Joining my fundraising team and enlisting your friends, family, co-workers and others:http://www.ustooevents.org/goto/teamtexas
3. Creating your own fundraising team: http://www.ustooevents.org/cap2k
100% of all donations will go directly to our allies in this war, the Prostate Cancer Foundation and Us TOO International, for prostate cancer research, to help prostate cancer patients and their families, and to increase awareness. Any amount, great or small, helps in the fight.
That’s it, but that’s not all. It’s not over until we beat it.
Thanks for your donation and please keep Larry in your thoughts and prayers.
