Again, in my strolls around the net I came across this great Jeep 4-wheeling team (With the help of following http://www.Infamous4x4.com link) and their valiant effort to aid in finding a cure for cancer – Crawl to Cure Cancer. A team member was personally affected by the turmoil and devastating destruction cancer leaves in its trails. Unfortunately, it is a story too many people can tell. Too many people can say they know of someone who is battling this disease, lost a loved one to it, or have or are fighting it themselves. It is a courageous fight. Because I feel it is such a worthy cause and a great group of people helping to fight for a cure I wanted to share Crawl to Cure Cancer with you all to help spread the word. Here is more about this great group of Jeepers.
“My team and I have been competing in the professional rock crawling series called WeRock since 2005. We travel the mid-west and east coast attending rock crawling competitions and Jeep Shows. I am the only female driver in the stock modified class and the Jeep was bright green, both factors into the attention we draw at these events.
In June of 2008, I lost my mother to a brief battle with colon and liver cancer. My mom was one of my biggest fans and a big fan to the world of rock crawling and motorsports. I have been thinking of ways to hold an off road event or something in my mom’s memory, when the idea was presented to me to paint my competition jeep pink and raise money for cancer research. And thus, Crawl to Cure Cancer was born.”
Last year this group raised $15,000 dollars that was donated to the American Cancer Society. Maybe with more awareness they will be able to double that total or more. You can visit their website at Crawl to Cure Cancer and see where they will be next.
