Jazzerthon for the Cure

Should have mentioned this earlier, but...better late than never.

Sunday I'm participating in my third Jazzerthon, a fund-raising event for the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. About 500 of us will dance and exercise for 3 hours in the ballroom of the Ritz-Carlton Buckhead, after having collected donations from those who are willing to support our efforts. I don't think anyone needs the pitch on the worthiness of fighting breast cancer, so let me just say that the Komen Foundation supports breast-cancer research directly, and also gives community grants for things like screenings, support groups, education efforts, and other local needs. It's a great organization that makes good use of the money they raise.

Unfortunately the Jazzerthon is not an event well set up for Internet fund-raising (or I'd have been much more....vocal, so to speak, on LJ and other places where I'm involved in a community). However, if anyone is interested in supporting me in this and donating to an excellent cause, I can take PayPal through Friday (the 16th) to my LJ account name at alum dot emory dot edu.
