"With a Little Help From My Friends"

In thinking about what to post tonight, the Beatles tune "With a Little Help From My Friends" has been in my head all day.  This post is dedicated to you -- the people who are in my life. It's May 31st.  I have been pursuing a goal to exercise everyday for the month of May to raise money and support for those who are living with Cancer (including their family members).  This goal was important to me to achieve, because my father, George Hoar, passed away 5 years after living with the disease (off and on) for 14 years.  In honor of him and the values that he and my mother helped to instill in me (and my siblings), I've attempted to raise $500 for this cause.  The challenge was called Workout to Conquer Cancer.

Workout to Conquer Cancer

It has been 5 years since my Father passed away from cancer.  To mark the occasion, I am doing something that is deeply important to me -- SERVICE.  I am raising money for Cancer research in British Columbia through participation in the Workout to Conquer Cancer.  I am doing this in service of others who suffer from, who live with, cancer.

My goal is to reach $500.00 ($100 for each year that I have lived without my father).  The task is to workout each day for the month of May. Today is May 10th and I am 25% to where I want to be: I have 21 days to go and $350 dollars to raise. Can you help me?
