New Year’s Resolution: Support a Great Mission

In 2008 Speedy Sneakers Walking and Running Clubs for women will be supporting the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition in the mission to fight cancer. Anybody that has ever had somebody die from cancer can attest that this is a fight; in fact it is a war. Cancer is a devastating enemy that many times takes lives way too early. The fight is ongoing and relentless to find a cure.

The Ovarian Cancer Coalition mission is “To raise awareness and promote education about ovarian cancer. The Coalition is committed to improving the survival rate and quality of life for women with ovarian cancer”.

Speedy Sneakers mission in promoting health and fitness in women through walking and running programs also believes that we should live up to our mission by supporting grassroots organizations that are on the front line in the battle to improve the lives of women.

As a man, I am profoundly appreciative of the role that women play in our society, from their role in the workplace to their role at home, women are a precious treasure.

As you make New Years resolutions I hope that you resolve to contribute to society by considering supporting your local or even the national organization of the NOCC. You can find more information about NOCC on their website.
