for a world without blood cancer
As some of you know, Barry and I are putting together a Team to Hike Yosemite June 10th, 2017. We want a big team in Yosemite a big “Be Like Bob” team! We thought it would be pretty cool to hike with close friends, hike together, do it with purpose, do it to honor patients, their families and in memory of loved ones taken by cance
Barry and I have set a goal for our team to raise $100,000. By achieving this goal our team name can be attached to a Research Portfolio and make a significant step toward a cure.
Barry has wanted to honor his sister and her successful treatment for CML for sometime. When he personally raises $50,000 or if our team raises $100,000 it will happen, the team name will be attached to research grant. We would love to have you be on our TEAM. Wouldn’t it be great to be part of this dream!
Hike with Team In Training is a 3 night stay at an awesome resort. TNT provides us with a hike coach to prepare us. At Yosemite we hike with a guide, there is an inspiration dinner and lots and lots of love. We wanted to put this out early so you could decide if you want to join us and make a commitment to beating cancer and get your fund raising page set up right away.
We are planning ahead to stay on after the hike. Think about staying on with us and make this a real special trip. We need to make reservations early at some of the lodges, the parks and surrounding area are very busy in the summer. I have done research on places to stay in the Yosemite area and those are filling up fast, so reservations need to be made soon. They can always be cancelled. I have looked at staying after the hike at the nearby Sequoia National Park. At Sequoia National Park there is an option to stay at a lodge inside the park or at a Bed and Breakfast 2 miles from the Park. If we have enough people wanting to stay on, we can even get the whole place for just us. We can all get together and go over details. In fact, if you are interested in taking this on, we would love to get together with you for a Happy Hour soon, or via email, or telephone (321 960 1070). Let us know if this is something you are interested in doing.
We would be very honored if you joined our Team “Be Like Bob” for the Hike. It is so much more fun doing it with people you loveJ
It’s a great knowing cancer fears you, join us, send us a note and let’s get rolling, HIKE ON!
Peace, love and hike on,
Michele and Barry
