As I've mentioned a few times over the past couple of months, I will be raising money for the Jimmy Fund by riding the PMC this August. My training is coming along great and I'm looking forward to the weekend of the ride!
While brainstorming fundraising ideas the other day, my friend came up with the great idea of selling ribbons. For your donation of $5, I will wear a ribbon on my jersey in honor or in memory of anyone you know affected by cancer. Just visit my fundraising page and make a $5 donation for each ribbon you'd like. If you'd like more than one ribbon, you can make one donation - For example, if you would like three ribbons, you can make one donation of $15.
There are a couple of ways to let me know who the ribbon(s) is in honor or memory of:
- You can make a note in the Optional Note(s)/Note to Rider section of the donation page
- You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with the name(s)
Remember that 100% of the proceeds benefit the Jimmy Fund and their efforts to find a cure for cancer. All donations are tax-deductible too! Don't forget to find out if your employer matches because that means your donation could be doubled. Also, if you have Donor Advised Funds and not sure how to allocate them, the Jimmy Fund is a great choice.
Thanks for all who have donated and keep an eye out for my online bake sale where I will donate tasty treats to raise even more money for the PMC!
