Katie Monahan | Team Cadets for a Cure
I cannot believe that there is only ONE WEEK until the grand finale! I am so close to my personal fundraising goal, and I know with your help I can make it. This campaign has brought me stories of my family and friend's personal experiences with cancer, that I never knew before. I am so grateful for all of the messages of support I have received along with donations in honor of specific people. That is one of the ways this campaign has greatly affected me as a person, I am realizing firsthand how many people's lives have been changed by cancer. This makes me feel so encouraged to fundraise and spread awareness, be sure to share my fundraising page on your social media or with your contacts. LLS works hard so that less and less people will have these tragic stories of how cancer has affected them.
Our Chipotle Fundraiser last night went AMAZING! Thank you so much to everyone who came to get dinner and show their support. We had our first in person team meeting after, it was so much fun to have the whole team together! It is crazy to think we have never had an in person meeting, corona has definitely made fundraising a very different experience but I am so glad we were able to safely meet up. Stay tuned for more food related fundraisers at Potomac Pizza and Sarah's Handmade Ice Cream!
I am overwhelmed with how many people have been supporting my team and I throughout just the first week of this campaign! I am so happy with how hard our team has been working to reach out to individuals and business and raise awareness on their social media accounts. We are already 50% to our goal!!! Together we can find a cure to blood cancer!
Night before kickoff! I have turned my desk into a mail making station! Here's an action shot of me writing, stamping, and stacking some letters to be sent out tomorrow. The team and I are fully prepared to start fundraising, all of our hard work will finally be put into action tomorrow! Let's beat blood cancer!
Final team meeting before kickoff! Our team mentor and previous LLS candidate Eleanor Bender came to give us some final advice for how to stay active throughout fundraising. Our team is so excited to help cure blood cancer!
