Cancer Fund Raising

Very few know this, but back in the late 1980s I was the fund raiser for a non-profit agency that worked with at-risk youth. This is what I did for a living while pursuing my dream to build a career as a personal coach for endurance athletes. Fundraising was a difficult but rewarding job. So I have a soft spot for those who face similar challenges. And I can tell you from experience that it is a huge challenge, made all the more difficult by the present state of the economy, I'm sure.

So you can imagine what I said when I was contacted by Eileen Lee from the National Foundation for Cancer Research who had read my recently posted blog on skin cancer wanting to know if I could help with a fund-raising project. I was asked if I would post a request for your to help. It's painless. I've done it. Will you do it, also?

If you will visit and click to take the “Help Strike Out Sun Damage” pledge, Coppertone Sport will donate one dollar, up to $30,000, to the National Foundation for Cancer Research to fund skin cancer research. It will take 3 clicks and 10 seconds on your part. Please do so right now. I appreciate your help. Thanks!

Joe - you should tweet the Coppertone link so that people can retweet it to their networks. It'll hit 30k in no time flat.
