Dear Friends and Family,

I'm writing to let you know that I'll be participating in the JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes on 04/10/2011. I hope that you’ll consider joining me.

Taking part in the Walk is great experience. Not only do you get the satisfaction of helping JDRF make a difference in the lives of people with type 1 diabetes – you also have FUN and get a good workout too!

The money we raise will go to finding better treatments and a cure for people with type 1 diabetes.  I need your support, so please do whatever you can – join my team, register to participate in the Walk as an individual walker, or make a donation on my behalf.  Follow this link for more information.

Thank you so much for your support. I hope to see you at the Walk.

Sincerely,
Kim Harper

Why We Fight MS

Having multiple sclerosis means that you may suddenly have blurry vision. Or that your memory will fail you for no apparent reason. Or that you may not always be able to walk, let alone ride a bike. The symptoms of MS are different, and devastating, for everyone - the only certainty is that it will affect yet another person every hour of every day.

Why I Ride

I've registered for Bike MS because I want to do something for the people who have been diagnosed - and because I want to do everything to prevent more people from learning what it means to live with this disease. Today, there is no cure for multiple sclerosis, and with diagnosis occurring most frequently between the ages of 20 and 50, many individuals face a lifetime filled with unpredictability

This year, I am helping save lives from cancer by taking part in the American Cancer Society Relay For Life, and I am hoping you will support me.

The American Cancer Society Relay For Life is a life-changing event that gives people in communities across the globe a chance to celebrate the lives of people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against the disease. At Relay, teams of people camp out at a local high school, park, or fairground and take turns walking or running around a track or path. Each team is asked to have a representative on the track at all times during the event. Because cancer never sleeps, Relays are overnight events up to 24 hours in length.

In addition to helping people celebrate, remember, and fight back, Relay For Life also helps raise much-needed funds and awareness to help the American Cancer Society save lives from cancer.

Here is what I wrote on my webpage:
Yep, I'm gonna do this.
Why? Because this is an important cause and a bold statement of support for cancer research.
Am I scared to lose my hair? Yep, but I bet I am not half as scared as those who lost their hair through chemotherapy. I admire those folks and I want to show my support for their battle.
Where does the money go? To research - a crucial part of finding a cure so that others do not have to suffer.

A coworker said to me "Do you even know any kids who have cancer?" And, thankfully, no, I do not. His response "Well, if it is not personal to you, why do you want to do this?" And I said " Not having been personally touched by childhood cancer IS my reason for doing this. I don't want to wait until it happens to me or mine, I want to act now." As a teacher, I think it is important to set examples for kids of the experience of fund-raising, reconsidering what is "normal" to them and supporting causes that people believe in.
