Hi guys...and gals.

So, after much thought and contemplation, I have decided to go ahead and post this topic here. I figure if it is out of place or upsets anyone, the moderators will close it down.

I along with two friends have taken the challenge of doing the breast cancer 3 day walk in Chicago. We will be walking (and running) 60 miles over the course of 3 days to raise money for the Susan G. Koman cancer foundation. We can not do that without the support of people like you. I am asking for donations that will benefit the foundation, not me, if anyone is interested in doing so. If you would like to make a tax deductible donation, please follow the link and do so. As a team we have to raise at least $6600, $2200 each in order to do this. I have committed myself to doing this, but can't do it alone. I appreciate your time and consideration.

Thanks Doug, I really appreciate that. I've never been directly affected by breast cancer but friends and family have dealt with other types of cancer for years. Hopefully some day no one will have to deal with the thought of such a terrible thing. I will say, they have made great strides and it is no longer the death sentence it used to be.

Thanks again Doug

Mick and Maria...you guys have put me over the $1000 mark! I can't even begin to thank you guys for supporting such a great cause. I know it has been said a ba-zillion times in the past, but I'm gonna say it again...the people on this website are by far the most giving and caring people around! Thank you all so much.

I had to put a "shout out" to all of the oldgasser's on my personal page because you have come thru so big!

Thanks again

Hi Tara,
Thanks for the reply! I am doing the walk in August that's in Chicago so I have until August 1st to raise all of the money. My team and I have been working very hard to do fundraisers and so far people are coming thru for us. I do realize that with the economy being the way it is, people are holding onto money tighter than before which has made us have to be more creative in our efforts. Any donation is a HUGE help, and remember, it is all tax deductible!
Thanks again

Want to THANK Jason (Esse's Garage), and Mark Katulski from the bottom of my heart for their donations. I can't believe the generosity of the people on this site. People I have never met before or talked to are coming thru HUGE for this cause, and I just can't tell you all how much I appreciate what you have done.


This is a pic of me and some friends doing the Martian Marathon earlier this month to help raise money. That's me in the black jacket and grey pants.

Thanks again to all that have contributed!

Hi friends,
I have been getting some email about mailing a donation rather than doing it online at www.the3day.org. You can do that by printing out the donation form (click on the link and the mailing info is on the form) and mailing a check/money order to the Susan G Koman foundation directly. Please do not send it to me, send it straight to the foundation, and keep a copy for yourself to claim on your taxes! Thanks again to all of those that have stepped up to help such a great cause
