Someone asked me if I would take off the yellow bracelet I have worn since Eric was diagnosed (and promised to wear until he hits his 5 year mark of being cancer free). I won't. I did not and do not support the group because of Lance.
And there are so many other organizations out there supporting cancer research efforts. As I mentioned in a previous post, Eric and I were so honored to take part in Emory's Win The Fight 5K. We just got notice that they have raised over $375,000, and are still raising money through the end of October.
That ain't no chump change, peeps.
I previously expressed how impressed Eric and I were with the race--the volunteers, the infrastructure, the port-a-potty guy who was cleaning them out after about every 5th person. (He even had on a white button down shirt and khakis. Bless this sanitation saint.)
The race also posted hundreds of pictures that participants were able to download, watermark free!
For a guy who was 6th overall and first survivor, I say not too shabby!
I guess in comparison to below, he should feel pretty embarrassed. (Insert opposite day).
