Acupuncture for a Cause, Take 2
Let’s make a deal: You get acupuncture, and I’ll do a triathlon. Together, we’ll make a difference in the lives of cancer patients.
I am offering a Spring special: 2 (two) acupuncture sessions for $150.This includes an initial office visit (90 minutes) and a follow up visit (60 minutes) , and is a savings of $65. For each session purchased, $30 will be donated to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Gift certificates may also be purchased at this rate.
Cancer affects all of our lives. It recently dealt a blow to my family, with the sudden diagnosis of my beloved father. We lost him only 3 months later, in January 2011.
Dad was an avid runner and a track coach. Last year, in his honor, I participated in the NYC Triathlon. I swam .9 miles (in the Hudson!), biked 25 miles (to the Bronx and back, and got 3 flat tires!) and ran 6.2 miles (finishing joyfully in Central Park). I trained with Team in Training, and with the support of several friends, family members, and friends of friends, raised close to $3000 toward cancer research and patient support.
The training helped me cope with my tremendous loss. I did one of the things that was closest to my father – run! Along the way I met amazing teammates, coaches, and survivors. And I was touched by each and every donation. So, I am back to do it again this year!
My goal is to raise another $3000 for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS). You can do something to support the cause – get acupuncture!
If you prefer to make a direct donation, you can do it here. Donations of all sizes make a difference and are so appreciated.
Thank you for your support. I look forward to seeing you at the office and out on the road!
