Nick and his wife Leigha are walking together to support the fight against breast cancer and they need your help to hit their goals. Our previous two spotlighted walkers has hit their goals and surpassed them, but Nick and Leigha are lagging a bit.
If you’re unfamiliar with the Avon Walk you might not be aware of the extent of the commitment these people make to the cause. We know from the name of the event that they’ll be out walking to raise visible awareness of the cause. You know from my harping on it for several days now that they’re committed to asking others to contribute to the cause. Are you aware that every walker has made a personal commitment to hit that $1,800 goal even if it means taking it out of their own pocket?
Here’s what Nick has to say.
My name is Nick, and my wife Leigha and I are walking in the Avon Walk this weekend. We draw inspiration from several sources – from my aunt, who, at a young age, was diagnosed with breast cancer, but who has since recovered; and for my wife’s grandmother, who has outlived her doctor’s predictions for several years. Without local services to take her to the doctor and help get her meals, there’s no way she would still be around for us to enjoy her company. This is another great reason to donate – people know the money goes towards research for a cure, but it also goes to help care for women with breast cancer as well!
To any of you who donate – thank you for your kindness and generosity!
Thank you again,
Help fight breast cancer by supporting Nick here and his wife Leigha here. You can contribute any amount you like and every cent counts. When you click the “click here to support me” button on each walker’s page you can opt to do any amount on a one time basis, or make a commitment to donate $25 a month for the next 3 or 5 months.
