Two of my favorite people: Amanda’s sister Jess and her betrothed James took the effort to create “Team TJ” for a 3 mile walk to benefit the Colon Cancer Coalition. So while I’m beating the crap out of this disease, this walk looks to create awareness, raise funds to prevent, detect and treat it. I think we all agree actions speak louder than words, so if you can help out in anyway, sign up (or share this blog with your friends) and help me kick this things ass. Her original email is below:
James and I signed up for the 2011 Boston “Get Your Rear In Gear Challenge” an event to benefit the Colon Cancer Coalition, and to support TJ of course! We want to make a difference for him and the thousands of people in the community touched by colon cancer. The funds we raise will help with prevention, early detection and treatment for this disease. It’s a 5K (3 mile) run/walk in Boston on Saturday, November 12, 2011. We registered a team for all of us called “Team TJ!” that anyone can join who would like to participate and help in the Challenge!
Here’s the “Team TJ!” page where you can join the team, sign up, make donations and see our progress!
Please pass our team info and link on to any other family and friends who you think would want to join or help! I know Teej has a billion friends and family members who I don’t know and obviously missed in this email, but it’s the more the merrier!
Jess & James
I had a little trouble figuring out what to click once I got there. So if you want to partake, just look at the list of names that is lower on the page, directly to the right of where it says “Team TJ” click the blue “Join Team” link. If you wish to support a specific person on the team, just click on their name.
Everyday I am more and more amazed of how wonderful you all are. Your support only makes me stronger, and you bet your ass I will be running in this thing.
Much Love – Teej
p.s. The sperm bank was a little awkward, the tech/nurse assured me that the sample jars are the same ones they use for urine collection and that “nobody ever fills the cup.” lol
