Race For The Cure

Crossing the Finish Line Crossing the Finish Line

I participated in the Race for the Cure last week -- as you can see (I'm in the white hat), I completed it successfully. All 5 km! (Although I must admit that I only ran across the finish line, and walked the rest of the way.) No I didn't win. But I was proud to be there.
Posing with a Tiger Posing with a Tiger

The previous picture was supposed to be me sprinting across the finish line, doing a two-handed victory pose. But the timing got messed up, so I settled for doing a one-handed victory pose with this charming pink-ribboned tiger. You can click for a larger version.

Thank you, a billion times thank you, to everybody who donated! And not just those who donated to MY fund-raising efforts, but thanks to all of you who contributed money, time, or effort toward ANY cancer-fighting cause.

I love doing the Race for the Cure, because I love being a part of thousands of people uniting together toward a common goal. I also love how my friends here in blogland united against this disease as well.

Together we raised at least $770... more when you consider money donated in other places! You people rock.

BTW, I keep forgetting to ask the CFO so I'll ask you. Did my company (Bauer) end up matching my donation?

Well, they definitely didn't do it by using my website link. But if they cut a check and mailed a form referencing my name, I probably won't find out until the donations "close", on July 15... If they just sent a donation directly without mentioning me (which is okay, since the money's the most important part of course!), I might never know.
