About my Fundraiser

Dear Friends & Family,

I am taking part in a fundraising event for Arms Around Bainbridge on May 19th.  We're having a Spin-a-thon at Island Fitness and I am asking for your support.

Arms Around Bainbridge began in 2007 with seven friends, a thirty mile swim around Bainbridge Island, and one vision: to provide financial and emotional support to Olivia Carey as she battled ovarian cancer.  It immediately became apparent that Olivia's challenges were not unique.  Since 2007, we've helped and supported other residents in financial crisis due to life-treatening illness and recently, cyclists, runners & rowers have joined to assist us to raise funds for current & future recipients. Your donation will help us serve more people who need us at the most difficult time of their lives.

Although Loretta isn't an Arms Around Bainbridge recipient, she is our trainer, teacher, wife, mother, sister, and friend.  And she is battling cancer.  So we want to dedicate this ride and every dollar earned by Team Loretta to Arms Around Bainbridge so that everyone can fight serious disease without serious concerns about how they can afford it. 

"I am very grateful to all those in my life who are helping and caring for me. We should remember how many helpers there are in the world." - Loretta Stanton from her very poignant blog about her journey forward to health. 

Please visit her blog at www.lorettastanton.com and join us in celebrating her on May 19th!

Thank you!
