I am running my third marathon in honor of the Leukemia and Lymphoma survivors. I am raising funds through the Team in Training group of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. I am currently looking for individual and corporate sponsors and have set a fundraising goal of $10,000.I’ve attached some documentation and the link to my website.

Thanks so much for your help. Please do not hesitate to call if you have any ideas or need additional information (514.594.0189)

My challenge is to run 42.2km in less than 4 hours.
My challenge to you is to help me raise at least $10,000 by October 15th, 2007.

Why help?
My inspiration is the survivors! Those who rise to the challenge to fight this disease and make the most of every day. I want to help them have the best possible conditions and eventually, not have to fight this fight ever again.

You can provide much needed support and have the name of your organization associated with this worthy cause for a very small investment.

How can you help?

-Become a Corporate sponsor today! – the different levels of sponsorship are attached to this letter.
-Challenge your employees and/or me by offering to match our contributions (I will contact you to explain the possible options )
-Offer a percentage of the proceeds of sales of certain products (like Tim Horton’s® Camp Day)
-Allow us to establish points of sale for the Purple bracelet campaign
-Provide suggestions and/or encourage your employees to get involved and/or help raise funds for the LLS.

In the name of all those who are battling blood cancers, and all the researchers who are making great progress thanks to your support, as well as in the name of the LLS, I personally thank you in advance for your valued contribution! There are also 3 ways to make individual donations:

· Online by credit card on my secure web site: : http://www.active.com/donate/tntmon/Pressoir

    Note to editor: I recently ran across this copy of my earlier email which ended up in electronic nirvhana so here it is again.

    I had forgotten about the Sky Lancers and their unfortunate demise so I was very glad to be reminded. As a CF-100 pilot in 425, 416 squadrons, and EWU at St. Hubert, I was not keen on thrashing about the sky doing aerobatics myself but certainly enjoyed watching others. Over the years I have seen a number of teams from all over the world but the skill and finesse of Canadian pilots and their teamwork never ceases to thrill me and especially of the Snowbirds. Unfailingly they do maneuvers that are particularly noteworthy for novelty and skill not matched even by the famed USN Blue Angels in my opinion. In spite of any mishap, Canada has every right to be extremely proud of all its Air Ambassadors over the years and the fact that they are indeed held in high esteem outside the country.

    I am pleased to learn from Veritas that RMC graduates have been selected over the years for Rhodes Scholarships, and deservedly so. In 1965, some 7 years after graduating, I was awarded an Athlone Fellowship through which I attended Leeds University, graduating with an MSc. I don’t believe that programme exists any more but I would be very interested to learn of any other cadets who followed that path.
