UPDATE (10/26/22): My dad has now raised almost $11,000 of his $15,000 goal for the month of October (Pinktober)! Here is a rundown of the events he hosted this past week:
Chris Steinke’s 2022 Breast Cancer Awareness Fireside Friday
2022 Kick$ 4a Cure
Dad raised another several thousand dollars toward his campaign on Saturday, October 22nd, at his 3rd annual Kick$ 4a Cure event! This year, there were 8 kickers who kicked 100 field goals each to raise awareness for breast cancer and to help raise funds for American Cancer Society! You can watch Jon kick on Facebook at this link–and I was the first female who ever kicked in the event! You can watch me kick on Facebook, too!
Original post: For 3 years now, my dad, Jon Althoff, has served as an ambassador for the American Cancer Society’s “Real Men Wear Pink” campaign! This year, he’s co-chair of the entire campaign!, and you can donate to his 2022 campaign at this link (he’s already raised over $6,500 of his $15,000 goal)!
Dad’s goal is almost $5k more than what he raised last year ($10,500)!!! Thank you to those who have already donated to the cause!!
Fireside Friday: Friday 10/21 @ 6pm CST
Kick$ 4 A Cure: Saturday 10/22
Join Jon on Facebook Live at this link on Saturday, October 22nd, for the 3rd annual Kick$ 4 A Cure Event! Kickers will be kicking from 10am – 3pm, and Jon will be kicking at 2pm CST.
What is Real Men Wear Pink / American Cancer Society anyway?
It’s BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH!!! In honor of this month, here’s a video of a speech that my twin sister and I gave at the American Cancer Society Minnesota’s 2nd Annual ResearcHERS Luncheon in 2021 explaining our journey through breast cancer diagnosis, treatment, and survivorship! We start talking at the 38 minute mark in the video below:
Or, you can watch the speech as my dad filmed it from his iPhone below:
As I’ve mentioned in a previous post, it was awesome to be able to share about our experience with a room full of award-winning researchers and donors and to meet some incredible researchers dedicating their lives to discovering new cancer diagnosis and treatment protocols and doctors treating cancer patients on a daily basis. God is good!!!
Thank you for your support of the American Cancer Society and Jon’s Real Men Wear Pink campaign. You can donate at this link! Without donors’ generous support, advances in cancer research that directly impacted our treatment and the treatment of thousands of others would not be possible!
