As most of you have read, I've been doing what I can to help my friend Nicole Cassity raise money to help her fight her battle with breast cancer. Being 23 and a new mom, it is a pretty tough thing to deal with. Between Nicole's friends, family and our hometown we have been able to raise some good money to help her out. We still have a big event coming up soon to hopefully bring in the majority of the funds. To help, my husband decided he was going to run the City of Trees Marathon here in Boise Idaho.
First, he told all his friends and family that if he could get the donation money up to $200, he would run in a pink shirt. Check and mark.
Some of his co-workers asked what it would take to get him to run in a pink shirt AND a pink tutu. $500. Check and mark.
Then.... his co-workers asked what it would take to get him to print a photo of him in his new attire and hang it up outside of his cubicle at work. $750. Check and mark.
So far, his co-workers have settled with that but he has raised $1000!
Nicole had her mastectomy on Thursday, so she will not be able to attend. I'm bringing the video camera down to shoot it so that she can watch it later. I'll snip it up a little and post it on here later.
Thanks to everyone for their support. Here's my main squeeze in his partial outfit. The tutu photos are being saved until after the race :)
