As I mentioned in my previous post, I am participating in Great Ride 'n' Stride 2010 (I'm doing the Stride part) to support the mission of the Canadian Cancer Society. The walk here in Burlington is on Sunday May 2nd.

So far, our team has collected in online donations $7,695.00. My online collection is $660.00 plus an additional $220.90 in cash donations. You can follow how well I am doing at the Canadian Cancer Society webpage.

In addition to participating in this fundraiser, I will donate 15% of any sale made from both my Etsy and ArtWanted stores to the Canadian Cancer Society in honour of my brother Mike, who recently lost his battle with this disease.

I have also set up a permanent store where 100% of the profits will be donated to the Canadian Cancer Society. The TeamMike store sells bookmarks and only bookmarks.

The money raised helps fund leading-edge cancer research that is improving cancer treatments, preventing cancer and saving lives; provide reliable and up-to-date information on cancer, risk reduction and treatment; offer vital community-based support services for people living with cancer and their families; and advocate for healthy public policies.
