Always for my mom, and all my other friends who have battled cancer.
Mom was diagnosed over 7 years ago now. In that time she has been treated 4 times with 4 different treaments. All harrowing and painful. We are waiting to hear when the 5th will be. My concern is, how much more can her body take? We don't know the answer to that. That's why I started working at LLS, to fund new, less invasive cures and treatments for patients like my mom.
What is the Winter Pineapple Classic?
The Winter Pineapple Classic is a fundraiser 5k(ish) obstacle course at King County's Marymoor Park on 11.10.19. Pineapple is not timed and is a family friendly event. All participants carry a pineapple (provided by Chestnut Hill Farms) and most dress in costume. The more money I raise the more event day perks that are unlocked! Such as a Georgetown Brewing beer garden, a Hawaiian buffet and long sleeved shirt. Although this obstacle course is a test of physical endurance, it pales in comparison to what blood cancer patients endure. All proceeds raised directly benefit The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, and since its inception, this event has raised over $4 million.
Thank you for your time, consideration, and sincere generosity. We Pineapple because beating cancer is in our blood.
