Team "Beauty and the Breast" 2012

Dear Editor:

This year our team, Team Beauty and the Breast 2012, will once again be walking in the Susan G. Komen, San Diego 3-Day, November 16-18 joining thousands of women and men committed to battle this despicable enemy - Breast Cancer. 

This will be our 11th year walking as a team in this event.  Since our first walk in 2002, our team has raised over $100,000 and we're not stopping!  

Every 74 seconds, somewhere in the world, someone dies from Breast Cancer - a sobering statistic that we can not ignore. Probably each of you knows someone whose life has been affected by cancer. We do!  For 11 years, many of you've been there for us with your donations and support, and we are asking you to donate again because the battle continues.

The best way we can make a difference is to raise awareness - with tens of thousands of 3-Day walkers nationwide focusing attention on this cause - and by providing the monetary support necessary for research, education and treatment. That's why we are reaching out to you again.

This year Team Beauty and the Breast 2012 will dedicate our 60 miles to all of our friends and family who are survivors - thankfully the list has grown long!  We promise not to end our journey until we reach our destination - a world without Breast Cancer!

Please send your tax deductable donation to: The Breast Cancer Three Day (c/o) Schoon Scientific, 3395 Crystal Lantern St. Dana Point, CA 92629 or call 949-493-3380.
