Game Plan

So here it is. The last week of August. If you're sad about the end of summer, I have some good news for you. It's just the beginning of the most important time of the year for childhood cancer awareness. 

What do you mean, you say? We mean, use September—the next 4 1/2 weeks—to stick it to children's brain cancer. How?

1. Take out your credit card and register for the Kyrie Foundation 5K scheduled for Saturday, October 25. Right now. We'll wait.
2. Use your personal 5K registration page to invite your friends and fam to walk or run with you.
3. Send an email to your pals explaining that you need their help and their donations to beat this cancer for the little brains that can't.
4. Post on Facebook the link to your personal 5K page so that friends can donate to your participation.
5. If you've never run a 5K before (like me), download the Couch to 5K app. There's still time to really do this thing!
6. Keep reminding people. There are a lot of distractions out there, and people forget about stuff.
7. Feel free to replace your FB profile photo or post this photo in your status or on your blog. Tell people why your work matters.

8. Send another email.
9. Ask your office to make a donation.
10. Post again.
11. Count your blessings. Plenty of moms and dads out there are hoping and praying that someone like you will do something--anything--to help find a cure for their child.
