Team CAN Challenge

Below is an email that I received today from the Foodie Blogroll Team.  I'm asking that each of you read and see what you might be able to do to help out.  You never know when this terrible killer might hit you or someone close to you.  But you must hurry.  Time is running out.

Thank you in advance!  Martha

Hello Martha,
We are writing you today on behalf of Team Continuum who is looking for New York City area influencers to rally behind the Team CAN Challenge, which raises money for people living with cancer.
We'd like to invite you to participate in this promotion to help raise awareness about Team Continuum, a charity non-profit organization dedicated to providing immediate non-medical, assistance to cancer patients and their families where the diagnosis results in disruption, hardship and uncertainty in their everyday lives.

The Promotion’s Goal

Our friends at Team Continuum are looking to engage the Foodie Blogroll community to create awareness about their charity and their upcoming event "Team CAN Challenge" by driving traffic to the website.

Team CAN Challenge Event

The Team CAN Challenge will be lead by reality TV stars, Sarah Leshner from Amazing Race and Eliza Orlins from Survivor. This family friendly event will take place on October 22 from 10am to 2pm at Central Park. Teams of three will compete in fun outdoor challenges around Central Park designed to test your body, mind and even your musical skills. Registration is $50 per person.

We’d love for you to share this enjoyable exciting event to your readers.

About Our Sponsor

The Mission of Team Continuum is twofold:

"We provide immediate non-medical, assistance to cancer patients and their families where the diagnosis results in disruption, hardship and uncertainty in their everyday lives.

We've bought airline tickets, purchased schoolbooks and laptops for children, paid bills for patients struggling to take care of themselves and their families, and helped in a million small ways.

We also provide funding to health care facilities and foundations, to enhance the delivery of care, communication and educational services for cancer patients.

We've funded patient narrative programs, cooking programs, bought wheelchairs for under-funded hospitals, spruced up waiting rooms...and once even brought a Christmas tree to a hospital."
