(Note: I’m cross-posting this from our team blog so that everyone sees it!)
All of us here at Relentless Optimism are incredibly grateful for every donation that we have received this year. We would not be able to do this crazy thing that is the 3 Day without the support of our friends, family and generous strangers. The primary goal of the Breast Cancer 3 Day is to raise money to help find a cure for breast cancer. It is because of the generosity of all of our donors and supporters that we are now that much closer to achieving a world without breast cancer.
We are incredibly thankful for and overwhelmed by the number of donations that we have received in pursuit of our team goal of raising $20,000 before the end of August. We are thankful for every single person that entered one of our fundraising contests or bought flowers through Flower Power. We are thankful for everyone that supported us through Tastefully Simple or Mary Kay. If you bought some stuff through our Amazon link or clicked on our Google Ads before they were shut down, well, we’re thankful to you too. It is because of all of you that we have been able to raise so much money for such an important cause.
Because we are so touched by the enormous generosity that has been sent our way, we want everyone to know all of your names. Shouting all of your names from a hilltop is little too difficult and hiring a skywriter to write all your names in the clouds is a little too expensive. So instead of all that, we have chosen to instead recognize each and every one of our donors and sponsors on a large banner that will be proudly on display between our tents during the Boston 3 Day for the Cure!

I am thrilled that we are able to recognize all of our supporters in such a public way. If you donated to us in any way before July 1st, then your name is in there and everyone in Boston will know it. We are truly honored that you have all thrown your support behind us and we hope that we can make you all proud as we walk up and down the streets of Boston in just under two weeks time.
I also would be remiss if I didn’t acknowledge my cousin Robyn Torkewitz who designed the spiffy new Relentless Optimism logo that you see on our banner. She also designed a second logo for our team shirts that we will be showing off in Boston as well. Robyn is a very talented graphic designer and we’re thrilled that she donated her services to us in this way. If you would like to see more of her work, you can find her personal website here.
Finally, if you will be walking in the Boston 3 Day for the Cure, please be on the look out for our banner! If you happen to spot us in the sea of pink tents, please be sure to stop by and say hi!
THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!
