Becca Needs Your Help!

This is Becca.

Becca is many things to many people. To me, she is sometimes called Donut, sometimes Gabe. She was with me this one time when a portent-of-death SUV almost killed us. She is my godmother (I adopted her as such when I was confirmed, since my baptismal godmother is M.I.A), she was the only person I've ever chosen to live with, and she's my best not-blood-related friend.

This is also Becca. Aside from being all of the above, Becster is also a source of much amusement when I get punchy.

Now, in addition to all these things, Becca will be a marathon runner. But she's not running for the sheer human achievement factor or for her own glory, oh no. My Becky is running for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society to raise awareness of and money for research of blood cancers.

This is where you come in.

Her fund raising goal is $4,000. If enough people pitch a little bit in the pot, she can totally make that goal. Here's her fund raising page. If you have two minutes time and a few bucks you can spare, go help the girl out. Every little bit helps, even a dollar!

I think with our collective pocket change, we can help Becca make a difference in the fight against blood cancers.

Thank you kindly!

You know, I run my marathons for both the sheer human achievement factor AND my own personal glory. Lots of person glory! But you can feel free to make a post similar to this one asking people to give me money for my upcoming race in October. Running shoes and whatnot ain't cheap ya know! We can say I'm running it for rabies!
