CANCER SUCKS

I have yet to meet someone who disagrees with that statement. We all know someone who has been affected by the nasty disease and my family is no different. 10 years ago, my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer at a young age. Since then, I have made it my mission to help raise awareness and funds to beat this wretched disease.

As most of you know, I set out a few years ago to walk all of the Avon Walk cities (5 down, 3 to go!) This year, I have signed up to participate in the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer in Chicago on May 31-June 1, 2014. The Avon Walk is a two day event where walkers complete a full marathon on Saturday and a half marathon on Sunday for a total of 39.3 miles.

This year’s walk is going to be extra special because my mom and two sisters will be joining me to celebrate my mom’s 10th anniversary of being a breast cancer survivor!!! Our team fundraising goal is $7,200! I will be hosting an online bake sale to help us get to that goal.

Power of Pink Bake Sale

I have hosted online bake sales in the past and this one will be very similar. If you’re interested in donating baked goods for the bake sale, please register here by Feb 23rd. If you are interested in bidding on baked goods watch for the bake sale to go live right here on Feb 25-28. All winning bids will be donated to our team.

If you’d like to donate directly to our team, without any baked goods in return (I have no idea why you’d want to do that…), you can check out the Power of Pink team page. If you’d like to learn more about the Avon Walk, check out their website at www.avonwalk.org.

    These are freaking adorable! I’ve had those cupcake bites on my must-bake list for a long time. Seeing your pictures makes me want to put on my apron and whip some up! 😉

    Those look so cute! My daughter would be begging for me to make them if she wasn’t asleep.
