Raising money to fight breast cancer

I'm repeating last year's effort to raise money for the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation by participating in an event organized by Jazzercise--I've been getting most of my exercise by attending Jazzercise classes for four years or so, now. The event is called the "Art and Soul Tour" (last year was billed as a "JazzerThon"), and will be a three-hour exercise session on Sunday, February 20th. To attend you have to raise a minimum of $150 for the Komen Foundation, and the more the better, of course. You can read my description of last year's event to get a better idea of what goes on.

The Komen Foundation supports medical research, community outreach, and screening programs to fight breast cancer. They've been around for 20 years--the start was a woman raising money in memory of her sister (Susan Komen, natch) who died of breast cancer.

So, if anyone would like to make a contribution to a good cause and help support my participation at the same time, I'd really appreciate it. I'm on PayPal as nlbarber AT alum DOT emory DOT edu (put Komen Foundation in the memo if you would), or you can mail me a check (send me an email for the address) made out to the Susan G. Komen Foundation. Contributions are (U.S.) tax-deductible. I have to turn in everything by Thursday, February 17.
