We have reached my minimum fundraising goal, but we can still use help from more people like these Heroes. Please considering joining them by donating any amount to http://pmc.org/DH0159.
Kellye Crane is another one of the member sof the online PR community that I have not met, but feel like I know as a group of supportive friends (just see her comments below). She blogs at Solo PR Pro, and adds more here:
- Why did you sponsor me in the Pan-Mass Challenge?
I’ve never met Doug in person, but I’m a huge admirer of his work and leadership in PR and social media. (note: I’m tempted to edit this– it’s too much- but at the risk of seeming immodest, I won’t- it’s the leadership I find in others like Kellye that makes me better. I’m just a member of the community) How does someone with such a high professional workload also undertake something like the Pan-Mass Challenge? I’m in awe. Giving a donation to benefit cancer research is the least I could do.
- How did you first hear about the Pan-Mass Challenge?
I actually did become aware of the PMC through your ride. Connie Reece (of the Frozen Pea Fund) is a great friend, and the fact that she’s such a supporter speaks volumes.
- Are you giving in the name or memory of someone you know who has had cancer?
The gift is for many. In one dreadful 12 month period, I lost my father, a dear aunt, and one of my best friends to different forms of cancer. Three years later, not a day goes by that I don’t think about the bravery of these loved ones, and I know we must make eradicating cancer one of our top priorities.
- Name one interesting fact or story that makes you unique and interesting
Ouch, the pressure! Perhaps it’s interesting that I had visited all 50 U.S. states by the time I was 13. With the exception of Hawaii, all of the traveling was done by car and almost exclusively via America’s campgrounds. As an adult, I always say I’ve met my lifetime quota for camping – no more Coleman lanterns for me!
Kellye,, thank you for sponsoring me. And thank you, everyone who has supported the Pan-Mass Challenge in any way. Please consider joining Kellye Crane to sponsor my ride and fight cancer: http://pmc.org/DH0159. Please feel free to pass the link to others as well.
