Team Lisa Needs Your Support!

It's Race Time again, and Luke and his mom are going to run breast cancer out of town for the second year in a row! On September 13th, we'll join TEAM LISA for the Komen NYC Race for the Cure. Last year, Team Lisa earned $12,000 for Komen, and LuketheBoy fans (hey, that's you!) were a big part of Luke and his Mom contributing over $2000 toward our team's total. This year, our team has an ambitious $15,000 goal and this is our request for you to help us again!

Pleeeeease? I mean, LOOK at this face:

  • Because breast cancer knows no boundary be it age, gender, socioeconomic status, or geographic location
  • Because the greatest risk factors for getting breast cancer are being female and getting older
  • Because one in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime
  • We race because it makes a real difference - just look at the number of survivors at the Race every year; they are a testament to our success. Together we can realize our promise to save lives and end breast cancer forever
Most of all, Luke and I race because we love Auntie Lisa and are grateful to have her in our lives.

Please help us reach that goal with your financial support. Online donations are simple, and the site is secure. Please go to my fundraising page and make a tax-deductible donation online -- click on "Sponsor Paige" and help support us today.

If you prefer, you can also mail your donation to:
Komen Greater NYC Race for the Cure
P.O. Box 9223, GPO
New York, NY 10087-9223
Please make your check payable to: Susan G. Komen for the Cure and add my name in the memo so that I will be credited for your donation.

I know that this year is a difficult one for a lot of us, but every single dollar counts and there are no minimum donations.

Thank you all in advance for your support!
Luke & Paige
