So you probably know by now about Team Courage, what we think of as our “Promotional Department”. The team is our avenue to be out in the public and reaching people, hopefully to make a difference with what women are going through when facing breast cancer as well as raising awareness for our fund raising efforts through Courage Is My Strength.
The team’s first race is on October 9th in Barstow, CA. It’s the Powder Puff race, all women drivers, and the proceeds go to the Cedars Sinai hospital for breast cancer research. It’s a very exciting race, but even more exciting for me because October will be one year since I put together the idea of Team Courage, and to be able to put together a truck and a team within a year and make it to our first race is amazing. I’ve had lots of great help from wonderful people, without a doubt, and it’s so exciting to see this dream come true so quickly.
I have added a DONATE page to the top of this website. Right now we are on a fund drive for the Powder Puff. Our goal is to raise $2500, which will allow us to donate to Cedars Sinai, and even more exciting, pay for 10 mammograms for women that don’t qualify for other funding such as Komen and other breast cancer organizations. There are still women getting turned away from the testing they need, and those are the women we’re trying so hard to help.
Every donation, even $5, helps so much. I know that not everyone can donate, and I understand how hard times are for everyone. If there is anything at all that you can do to help us help others it would be appreciated from the bottom of my heart. We don’t want to just show up at the Powder Puff, we want to be able to make a big difference to other women from our very first event.
Thank you so much for your thoughts and support as we get closer to this monumental day.
