Every day, I am reminded how much Cancer sucks ! Today, I found out an old friend passed after a 6 year battle and a young neighbor of mine who had osteosarcoma just found out that nodules in his lungs are cancerous so he has to go through another round of treatment. Meanwhile, my brother-in-law has now had 3rd round of chemo fighting colon cancer. Every year, I'm reminded that I can help make a difference by doing my part in SMAC (San Mateo Athletic Club) against Cancer's annual event.
SMAC against Cancer is a great way for each of us to help. This year's recipient of all of our funds is the UCSF Benioff Children's Hopsital Cancer Research Center, and Benioff Children's Hopsital San Francisco Survivors of Childhood Cancer Program
I was fortunate enough to tour the UCSF Benioff Center last month. It was an amazing facility run by the best research doctors who genuinely put their heart and soul into doing all they can to help in the fight against pediatric cancer and in support of the survivors. We were given example upon example of the specific items that our funds have helped make happen. I know now that every dollar matters and every dollar is contributing to the greater good.
This year, we have an extra special event for Team Dance Party members who raise/donate at least $100- Louis Van Amstel of Dancing with the Stars fame and creator of LaBlast Fitness will be at our April 30th event and he will be giving a special LaBlast open class for those of us who donate or raise funds of $100 or more. Spots are limited so join the team and donate today so you can ensure you get a spot at this class like no other. Don't like to dance, you can swim, do yoga, spin or not do anything at all and just give what you can to help the cause.
Please pick how you want to participate and donate what you can. Every little bit counts so whatever you feel comfortable with will be graciously accepted.
If you do want to attend any of the events including the Dance with a Star class, please note the min. fundraising/donation amount required is: $100 and you need to REGISTER for the event. All other DONATIONS can be submitted via the DONATE button.
Thank you so much for your support !
