It’s that time of year, when I start my early and often asks for donations, small or big, medium or big, small or small, big or big, to go toward the Pamela’s Punch Team which is raising money for this year, the 11th annualÂ Scope It Out DC 5K Run/Walk. The event will take place again on Freedom Plaza downtown at 9am on SUNDAY, March 20th. Yes, I know, it’s Palm Sunday (Easter comes early this year) and spring break commences for many an excited child/parent, but even if you cannot make the family & dog-friendly run/walk, I’d love for you to consider making a donation.
Your $25, $50, $75, $100 or $5,000 (hahaha!), ok, anything in between that, will collectively help us to get to our goal of $7,500.
So, from the bottom of my heart as Team Captain of Pamela’s Punch, I thank you for supporting the continuing efforts that Colon Cancer Alliance has accomplished in the fight against colorectal cancer.
Last year, weÂ hit our goal of $7,500 and this year, we hope to not only reach that number this year, but soar past it!
You can donate HERE.Â
The funds raised will go toward:Â
- Creative Prevention Campaigns which encourage early screening
- Innovative Research Programs to find a CURE
- Patient & Caregiver Support Initiatives
