A lot of the team has been affected by BC.
During the campaign in 2010, I lost an aunt.

There are fundraisers for every disease.
I actually lost my mother to lung cancer and walked the ACS Relay for Life for a good amount of years. I wanted to find a way to combine my philanthropic interests with my Subaru interests (See the team bio's on our website for more info about me/SFB).

If you are interested in fundraising for a cause that touches closer to home to you, I support you 110%.

I know lots of people who fundraise for lots of different causes. I know there is something for everyone! It's about getting involved. Small efforts are what make a difference in aiding the bigger picture.

There are some really great fundraisers out there for men's causes. I believe mo'vember is one of them (pardon me if I'm wrong). And while it may be nicer to think about a breast exam - men's health and education is nothing to forget!!
