Fight Cancer: Sponsor a Flying Turkey

Hey everyone,

My mom’s side of the family has a pretty extensive history fighting and overcoming cancer (my mom, two of her three sisters, and two of their husbands, have all successfully fended off various forms of the disease), and as a result they’ve become dedicated supporters of the Lance Armstrong Foundation.

Every year we all get together for the big Livestrong Challenge event here in town. We “race” under the team name of The Flying Turkeys, since the sisters grew up on a turkey farm just outside of Austin. Now that I’m back in Texas, this is my first year running with the Turkeys, and I couldn’t be more excited. It also means I’m a fundraising noob and asking the internet to provide me with its copious small-donation bounty.

If y’all would like to donate to the cause, I’ve set up a direct link for easy online donations:


My family and I appreciate anything you can give, so thanks in advance and feel free to pass this post on to others.
