HAPPY BIRTHDAY to ME! $5 for 5 Years - LiveSTRONG!

Alyssa P. and Holly S. @ Crystal City Twilighter 5K

Well that about does it...just about two weeks ago, I turned 40!

I certainly do not feel any different (aka OLDER) but I did have alot of FUN celebrating with friends and family - in spite of the HEAT WAVE.

Try running a 5K at 8PM at night with temps at 96F = MELT DOWN! Not my best 5K time but I had a good time and was joined by fellow CANCER to 5K teammate Alyssa P.

As many of you may know, my sister Heather and I are racing the Irongirl Columbia Triathlon on August 22 with TEAM FIGHT!

The money raised for TEAM FIGHT go to benefit the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults and it's programs. One of those programs is very dear to me: CANCER to 5K.

So, I am putting it our here - it's been more than a year since I have done any soliciting on my blog - HELP ME RAISE SOME MONEY FOR TEAM FIGHT and CANCER to 5K. I'm just $225.00 away from my minimum goal of $750.00.

That's 40 donations of $5 each....Consider it a Belated Birthday gift....After all, I will only be 40 once AND this year is the 5th Anniversary of my Melanoma diagnosis...Help me celebrate 5 years as a SURVIVOR - just $1.00 per year...I know there are 40 of you lurking out there...

And if that is not enough to motivate a little bit more!

Two weeks ago we started our SECOND CANCER to 5K Team in Howard County, MD. They already have 11 survivors training and this weekend the DC/VA CANCER to 5K Team begins!

CANCER to 5K: Getting Fit, Having Fun and taking your life back from cancer - ONE MILE AT A TIME....via The Ulman Cancer Fund!!

Thank you from the bottom of my heart! LiveSTRONG!

I want to email you, but I can't find a "contact me" place here, or an email address. Would you mind shooting me an email at lindseysbreeden at gmail dot com when you get a chance? This isn't spammy or porn, I promise. Thanks:)
