Sample Fundraising Letters
From a Repeat Walker, version 3

Good Evening! I hope you are enjoying this beautiful weather.

I know I'm crazy, but I'm walking again! I can't help it, there is still no cure for breast cancer. This is my fifth event. I am very proud of the money I have raised, but I can't stop there. Two hundred thousand women and men in the United States will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year. Forty thousand will not survive. One in eight women will be diagnosed with cancer in their life time. Your donation can help find a cure. Your donation could help a loved one survive.

I have committed to walk 60 miles in three days to support the fight against breast cancer. I am so sick of cancer. I can't stand the thought of hearing that another friend or relative have cancer. As I train and walk each year I pray that all those we know and love never hear those horrible words "you have breast cancer." If we find a cure to breast cancer, the others cannot be far behind. This walk is for my children, my mother, my father, my sisters, my brother, nieces, sisters-in law, aunts, cousins, friends, and co-workers. Because I love you all, I have chosen to do my part.

The walk will be very challenging for me this year, as I am not getting any younger and feel the aches of training more each year. I have nearly reached my goal of $10,000. Please donate if you can, and if you can't, keep me in your thoughts and prayers. Please take this opportunity to support me and advocate for the heath of women and men that are important to you and have touched your life. I'll be thinking of you every step of the way as I train and walk in the August heat.

Thanks again for your support his year. I have no words to express my gratitude.
