Kim Townsend raising money for Breast Cancer 3-Day event

One of the most incredible aspects of my recent trip to Nashville, Tennessee for FitCamp with former “Biggest Loser” contestant Isabeau Miller was all the amazing people I got to meet there. You saw them on those YouTube videos giving it their all each and every day for those two weeks and it epitomizes the enormous character that these wonderful women possess. The proof of that for at least one of the FitCamp participants is proven by something she will be doing in November.

Kimberly Michael Townsend is one of the sweetest and most beautiful people inside and out you will ever meet. She worked hard at FitCamp and pushed herself beyond even what she thought she was capable of. But now she’s pushing to do something even better–a NEW challenge coming Thursday, November 6, 2008 when she will embark on a 60-mile walk over the course of three days. It’s called the Breast Cancer 3-Day which benefits Susan G. Komen for the Cure and the National Philanthropic Trust Breast Cancer Fund. Every advancement in breast cancer research, treatment, education and prevention in the last quarter century has been touched by grant from this remarkable organization. They are working hard to build a future without breast cancer and Kim has been working tirelessly to help with that goal.

This is a fundraising event and Kim needs our help to reach her goal of $3,000 which she is about $1,000 short of currently. We can all give SOMETHING, so consider making a $1, $5, $10, or higher donation to help her out with this very admirable cause. They’re looking for a cure for breast cancer and the money raised at these kind of events is crucial to coming closer to that goal.

For Kim, this hits close to home because her own aunt was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2007. She had to have a partial mastectomy, which, as you can imagine, is devastating all on its own. This was what lit a fire within Kim to do this 3-Day Walk event. But even since committing to it, she has met and heard stories from countless number of people who are suffering and fighting for their lives which reassured her that more than anything she wanted to be a part of this cause. She is concerned that one day it could be her mother, her sister, her best friend or even herself, so she knew she had to do something!

Currently, one in 8 American women will be diagnosed with breast cancer unless a cure is found. Won’t you help Kim fight this cause? DONATE ONLINE to support Kim and her “Mississippi Girls” walking team or you can download this form to mail in your contribution or you can call 800-996-3DAY to donate over the phone.

On behalf of my friend Kimberly Townsend, THANK YOU for helping out with the Breast Cancer 3-Day event!
