I'm so excited to be apart of such a FUN event in downtown Philadelphia this Sunday morning!
When I lived in Chicago-I was the host for the City of Hope there. I hosted this oh-so-fun Battle of the Bands event that was held at the House of Blues. LOVED IT. (Not to mention-being downtown partying it up at The HOB is always a blast! ha) I also hosted their walk that they had in Evanston every year. (I remember one year-it was sooooo COLD I about froze! ha. But was well worth it for the cause!)
This year, I was asked to take part in the walk in Philly on behalf of MyPHL 17 where I am a host for Better Philly, weekdays at 7am. Michelle, the chair is such an awesome person. I've only been around her 2 times-but I feel like I've known her forever! The 1st time she took me to lunch in Bala Cynwyd...and this last time? WE GOT PEDICURES TOGETHER! hahaha. (((Of course it was totally my treat-cause I'm a jerk and had to cancel on her all summer long.. boo on me!))) We also did a bit of shopping.
I tell you this-because I really want you to know the PASSION this organization has.
They are amazing.
The City of Hope isn't just another organization raising money to fight women's cancers. City of Hope isn't just breast cancer or cervical cancer... it's an organization raising awareness and funds for research of ALL cancers affecting women.
By expanding our walk to support all women’s cancers, we have decided to take on the responsibility of raising more funds and awareness for not only breast cancer, but gynecological cancers as well. We are taking a stand to beat the cancers that kill our mothers, sisters, and daughters every day.
Now check out this cool PURPLE video and be sure to register for the walk on Sunday Sept 12th- 7:30am
BRING YOU'RE ENTIRE FAMILY!! I am... Stewie from Family Guy will be there..and so will many other awesome activities! PLUS-you'll get to spend the morning in gorgeous downtown Philadelphia!
