Dear Julie Fund Walk Leader:
It’s THAT time of year again and Peter and I are really hoping you are up for being a TEAM Captain this year!! Team Captains are essential to the success of our Walk. Our teams have historically accounted for 85% of our walk revenue – and your team members do not need to be present on walk day to participate. All they need is a passion for protecting the women they love!
DATE: May 15, 2016
LOCATION: Herter Park, 1500 Soldier's Field Road, Brighton
TIMING: 8am check-in, 8:30 walk, 9:30 games & I Heart Radio
We are THRILLED to be able to remain a significant player in the fight against women’s cancers by channeling our resources into three categories: funding education on risk factors and warning signs of women’s cancers, dedicating research dollars to methods for early detection and support patients subsidizing non-medical expenses during treatment.
Here are the sobering statistics: Every five minutes a woman will be diagnosed with a gynecologic cancer - mothers, daughters, sisters, friends and colleagues – that’s almost 100,000 this year alone. Sadly, most are diagnosed in the late stages and nearly 1/3 will die.
Please share your story: why has The Julie Fund become important to you? That’s the story we want to hear – and your friends and family want to hear, too. It is these personal appeals that influence others to get involved.
Our challenge in 2016 is to raise $100,000. Can you help?
