Hello Family and Friends,
I wanted to let you all know that I am participating in the Howdy Honda Cap 2K on Saturday, May 4, 2013. The race distance is 1 1/4 miles and will be swum in Town Lake in Austin, Texas (which is really the Colorado River). 100% of the money raised will benefit "UsTOO International" to increase awareness, early detection, and support those with prostate cancer.
On a personal note, many of you know that my father was diagnosed with Stage 3 prostate cancer last August. Thanks to God and the doctors at the VA Medical Center, after completing a round of radiation and hormone therapy, his PSA (Prostate Specific Antigen) is nearly undetectable! I entered this race to honor him and to be an example to my kids; that it is possible to set goals, achieve those goals, and overcome fears.
So, I am asking you to help me by supporting a great cause by making a donation. Your donation will make a difference in the lives of many and it's tax-deductible! It is faster and easier than ever to support prostate cancer patients and their families - you can make your donation online by simply clicking on the link at the bottom of this message.
Any amount, great or small, helps in the fight. I greatly appreciate your support and will keep you posted on my progress.
Thank you so much for all of your support! Jenny
