I would like to thank those of you who donated to Fit City Training Manila
Flood Victims fundraiser. Your blessings will come "seven-folds of seven
hundred times". I have another cause which could be yours too.
Everyday, we hear people succumbed to cancer. This illness has no mercy and
chooses no one in particular. It can be anyone we know or just anybody who
came into this world seeking to enjoy the ultimate gift of life.
I myself, with God's mercy survived a fatal illness in 2004. Not cancer,
but I know how it is to experience such a horrible feeling of having to
choose to continue to live or to let go. Most of cancer patients choose to
let go, thinking that they may not survive their duel with death in
addition to feelings of being a family's burden.
With the help of cancer researchers, foundations and charitable
organizations, most cancer survivors tell their stories of survival aiming
to twist the feeling of hopelessness to the current victims. Most, if not
all of these survivors benefited from researches and all the organizations
for the cure.
As a fitness professional, my goal is to save lives and in particular, I
would like to be able to take part in making the CURE a reality to those
who are suffering from cancer. This coming Sunday, october 25th is a
90-mile ride for Lance Armstrong's Cancer Foundation, the Livestrong
Challenge 2009. For this year, I have chosen to sign up and be a part of
National Instruments Cycling Team. FYI, I teach classes and work part-time
at NI Gym for more than a year now. NI Cycling Team is known for it's
record being one of the leading teams in races and fundraising campaigns
for MS (multiple sclerosis)-100. NI Running Team has been the champion team
for years and current winner of the Capital 10k Challenge. I must say, I am proud
to be a part of this team.
If you are planning to donate and would like to support, please support me
and my team by helping me raise $250 by Saturday. I was told that since I
am in the waiting list, I will get my donation code once I get the final
slot on Friday afternoon. The donation code or the website is where you are
going to log on to send your donations and I believe it is tax deductible.
This email is for me to gather as much support from you and to know how
much I would raise by Saturday. Any amount would be equally appreciated. It
could from $1 to $250. Please note that I would know the donors but would
not know how much they would be donating.
Please respond to this blog for your support and on Friday before 6pm
Texas Time, I will send you the information on how to send your donation.
If you choose not to donate to my Livestrong Fundraiser and would rather donate
to the foundation directly, you can go to www.livestrong.org
