Next weekend, September 15th, I will be running a 5K to help the Komen Foundation of Michigan. Would you like to join me?
This post is sponsored by Valpak.
I am so excited to part of #Pak4ACure and participate in this 5K. I adore everything that the Komen foundation is doing to help with breast cancer awareness and research. They are bold. They set goals…and they’re not backing down.
Did you know the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure® Series is the world’s LARGEST and most successful fundraising and education event for breast cancer ever created?! The 5K races helps bring awareness to the breast cancer movement. Every event is such an emotional experience, especially once you see the celebrations of surviorship and families honoring members.
Of the funds raised, 75% goes right to the local organizations. Also, people of all levels of fitness are welcomed with open arms. Sprint, jog or walk–whatever you want. You all know that I’m not a huge runner, but I will do what I can for a cause!
If you would like to join me next Saturday (which I would LOVE), head to the Komen website–plus get $5 off with code DealPro (case sensitive). There are races all over the country and world, head to the website to find one near you.
As part of the Valpak Deal Pro network, I see firsthand all of the awesome things the company does. In October, check your mailboxes for a PINK Valpak envelope with deals. This partnership has been formed to support men and women who have or will develop breast cancer in their lifetime. In 2018, Valpak will donate AT LEAST $50,000 to the Komen Foundation.
Since I’m a mom of 3 girls, I want to set an example of good health for my girls–I need to take care of myself! We have many personal connections with breast cancer and finding a cure in the near future is essential. Spreading awareness, information and tips for early detection is essential.
