My “rear” is definitely registered to be “in gear!”…and another Great Cause!

YAY!  I finally signed up for my FIRST RACE EVER!  I will be running the Get Your Rear In Gear race sponsored by the Colon Cancer Coalition that I first discovered on LP’s blog!  Anyway, I am VERY excited!

Another great cause that I wanted to mention is as follows…The Saint Baldrick’s Foundation (according to their website)…

The St. Baldrick’s Foundation funds more in childhood cancer research grants than any organization except the U.S. government, more than $12 million in 2009 alone!

Each year, 160,000 children are diagnosed with cancer worldwide. Cancer is the number one disease killer of children in the U.S. and Canada. Research saves lives.

To date, over 106,000 volunteers have shaved their heads in solidarity with kids fighting cancer at more than 2,400 emotional events in 50 states and 24 countries…

A good friend of mine’s Husband will be shaving his head in solidarity on MARCH 12, 2010 at Fado Irish Pub in Philly.  This is a wonderful cause and I urge you ALL to donate!  Please click on this LINK for more information to help.  And like always, email me at jessdownes@yahoo.com with questions!
