Travis’s Cancer Walk Page
This spring and summer I have committed to walking with a group of amazing men to join in the fight to eradicate breast cancer. I am very fortunate to have joined the Men with Heart organization whose aim is to raise awareness and funds for cancer research but also to support the courageous woman participating in the Avon Walk and Susan G. Komen walks here in Boston. I am honoured to be able to be “one of those guys in yellow” and to have the opportunity to make a small difference.
In addition to being a Men with Heart I am also ‘one of those guys’ who has been personally affected by this horrific disease. I have lost four family members to cancer (including my Mother), have a number of close personal friends who are cancer survivors and am supporting my Nana who is currently bravely battling breast cancer. This year I am walking in support of my friends Deanna Young and Meghan Valade…they are my current motivation to keep up the fight.
Over the years our family has organized a number of initiatives to raise money for cancer research, support volunteer initiatives and generally be committed to any effort that is in pursuit of finding a cure. The Avon Walk, Susan G. Komen walk involves trekking a 100 miles and raising a minimum of $4200 dollars in support of the cause(s). Considering that I am not on my own ‘turf’ and been travelling with my humanitarian project (www.goodwilltravels.net) for the past year, neither the walk nor attaining the financial goal will be easy undertakings. I am reaching out to my friends, peers, family and the people I have met in my travels to assist me in reaching these goals so Men with Heart can achieve their goals in raising donations that make a difference.
