2013 Philadelphia Get Your Rear In Gear Run/Walk

Happy Friday, UFG'ers.  In honor of the first day of Colon Cancer Awareness Month, I am reposting this blog.  Please consider a donation!
Colon Cancer Coalition
Happy Tuesday!

Hope everyone had a great holiday weekend! I did indulge a bit this weekend - but not to the point of gaining any weight - woohoo!

Today, I have a pretty important reason to blog.  I've had the pleasure of having Karin Weiner be a big part of my life. A huge part, really.   Karin lost her battle with colon cancer this past August. I feel beyond blessed that I was able to be there with her and her daughters when she passed.

This year, on St. Patrick's Day, I'll be walking this race in her honor.  Karin and I handed our refreshments and words of encouragement at the race last year, and I'm honored to be actually participating in this year's walk.

Think of 20 people in your life who you care about: your parents, your childhood friends, your coworkers, and even your children... Statistics say that at least one of them will develop colorectal cancer, a disease that is the second leading cause of cancer deaths in the US.

Please join me in fighting the good fight and donate: 

Do it for Karin, do it for me, and do it for those 20 people in your life that you care the most about.
