Team FORCE at the local Race for the Cure


There we are: Team FORCE at our local Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. We had a great time, even though the weather was not cooperating. We made a lot of new contacts in our local community, both of the vendor/organization type and the individual type. We met some really great people that may benefit from our support and us from theirs! Looking forward to more events as part of Team FORCE.

A lot of you have already supported us by either walking or contributing to our fundraising efforts, so a huge THANK YOU for that. We appreciate every step and every Dollar. If any of you would still like to help Team FORCE, here are some things you can do:

  1. Spread the word about FORCE: Facing Our Risk of Cancer Empowered FacingOurRisk.org – the only national non-profit dedicated to improving the lives of individuals and families affected by hereditary breast and ovarian cancer. People like me and many of you.
  2. Make a tax-deductible donation to Team FORCE via our team’s FirstGiving page: http://www.firstgiving.com/fundraiser/Vbmichellebraun/2013tidewaterraceforthecure. 100% of your donation goes to FORCE.
  3. Purchase some beautiful Origami Owl jewelry for yourself or as a gift. The Holiday season is just around the corner! 20% of sales go to FORCE. There are four pre-designed breast cancer related lockets (see below) or you can create your own, as I did and a few of my readers too – THANKS, LADIES!!! If you are interested in supporting FORCE and getting some great jewelry, visit our designer’s website and make sure to select Team FORCE Fundraiser at checkout: http://MartineNuera.OrigamiOwl.com.
