Ada and Jen are excited to once again rally our team, “There's Something About Mary” in support of the North Shore Medical Center’s Cancer Walk on Sunday, June 20th, 2010. While Jen’s sister Mary continues her treatment and is so excited her recent tests show great promise and improved heath, she certainly appreciated all her friends and supporters last year that uplifted her spirits by walking with her and for donating so generously to an organization that has helped HER and so many more diagnosed with this disease. Without a doubt, we want to make sure we do our part to insure everyone gets the support they need, just like Mary.
There is much to celebrate this year, this being the 20th year of the walk, and we certainly hope to have a major presence once again. While it is only our second year, we are pump to have a bigger turnout and to again raise funds beyond our expectations. Last year it became clear that raising $11,375 came about because we got started early and were fortunate to have so many folks join our team, donate, and also set up Firstgiving fundraising websites for our team. With Facebook and email addresses, we are all connected more than ever and when we personally invite people to donate, it means so much more. Jen and I are hoping you can help us in our efforts to give back to the community and will join us, and Mary, to raise as much as we can for this worthy cause. For sure it’s all about the numbers….. the number of people that can be helped by supporting this event.
Ada has registered our team: There’s Something About Mary and has created a website for fundraising via the North Shore Medical Center’s Cancer Walk Website at: http://nsmcgiving.partners.org/theressomethingaboutmary
And…for every donation raised, Ada will again hold a drawing for a TWO(2) NIGHT GETAWAY for Two at her Bed & Breakfast, The AMELIA PAYSON HOUSE.
Basic Details: Donate $25 and your name is entered once. Donate $100 and your name is entered four(4) times…. and so on…
We are so excited to be a part of this annual Salem event and hope you will be too.
