Parts of the United States are blanketed in snow. People are home from work and have extra time to create words like “snowpocalypse” and “blizaster”. With all this bonus time, we put together a list of 7 things you can do from home to help ensure no one faces cancer alone:
Tell someone you know about our service. We personally connect anyone fighting cancer with a cancer survivor just like them. These “Mentor Angels” (now more than 4,000!) are carefully selected and have beaten the same cancer, at the same stage, with the same treatment. Our service is for anyone living anywhere with any type of cancer. It’s free. Just point them to http://imermanangels.org/get-cancer-support.php or have them call toll free 877-274-5529.
Upload a photo of a Snow Angel to your social media profile and add the caption “Imerman Angels helps ensure no one faces cancer alone. www.imermanangels.org”
Run a race or join a team to raise awareness and funds. Last year almost 200 marathon runners wore Imerman Angels jerseys and raised funds to promote our mission and help ensure no one faces cancer alone. Sign up at http://www.firstgiving.org/imermanangels
Want to put Urlacher to shame while supporting a good cause?
LTS (Live to Support) Chicago is holding their first annual Flag Football Charity Classic on November 21st. Coed teams of 12-20 can register (early bird $375 or $425 after Nov. 7th). The winning team will earn $500 to be donated to any charity they want (Imerman Angels!), as well as $1000 for the charity they represent through the competition (east/west side).
Congratulations to all of our Active runners who made it across the finish line! We noticed more light blue jerseys than ever this year and appreciate everyone who showed love for 1-on-1 cancer support by repping IA in the streets. We also wanted to thank the marathon for donating tips from the beer tent to us! This generous donation, along with the vendors, trainers and volunteers in our post-race tent, are huge to us and our mission. Your support helps us to ensure that no one faces cancer alone!
Come cheer on our Imerman Active team on Sunday as they take on the CHICAGO MARATHON! Jonny will be amongst our 170 IA speed demons (including a bunch of cancer survivors) tearing it up.
