Team Schroeder 2013
As I'm sure many of you guessed, I'll be participating again this year in The Colon Cancer Challenge's rememberance walk. The walk will take place in NYC's Central Park on April 7th, 2013 -- and once again I'll be walking for two wonderful people -- my father, Michael Schroeder, who passed away as a result of the disease in March 2007, and my mother, Elizabeth Schroeder, passed away as as result of the same disease in July 2010. I'd be lying if I said their impact on this world wasn't still with me, and I know many of you feel the same way about two people who taught us all to live (and laugh) to the fullest.
There are two ways you can elect to raise awarness and increase research efforts for this worthy cause:
You can register for the 1.7 mile remembrance walk and walk with me (there is an $18.00 entrance fee) - you can sign up through this site! After you do, please contact me, and I'll coordinate meeting times, t-shirts, and all that jazz. Hopefully the mild winter will continue, and we'll have a great day for tromping through Central Park!
Or you can offer monetary offer support thorough this website (which as a bonus offers completely tax deductible donations) via credit card. Just click on the Donate button above my fundraising thermometer to get started! All donations are secure and sent directly to the COLON CANCER CHALLENGE FOUNDATION, who will email you a printable record of your donation.
In addition, I would ask that if you know anyone who has a history of colorectal cancer (or is even over the age of 40), please urge them to get screened - it's the best way to raise awareness about the disease. (Many of you will be happy to know I'm headed for my third colonoscopy in just over a month.)
Many thanks for your support -- and please feel free to forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate too!
