Welcome to Rob Erickson's Personal Page
It's that time again:
Late enough in the year for the weather to get tame, yet early enough that we haven't yet completely blown off our New Year's resolutions.
So it's the perfect season for fundraising walks and runs. As I write this, they're wrapping up the 2017 "Shamrock Shuffle" down town. And while I didn't sign up for the Shamock, I did agree to participate once again in the "Wellness Walk".
You may recall this one, because I've hit you up for it before. But in case in case your memory is shakey, Wellness House is a facility near Hinsdale Hospital. They provide services for cancer victims and their families at no charge. You can check out the text for the canned fundraising message below. But you get the drift. It's a cool concept, yet one that requires support. So on May 7th, I hoist myself from the recliner and waddle the streets of Hinsdale to raise money. (Here's where you come in.)
If you find yourself with a few extra bucks burning a hole in your pocket this spring, what better way to put out the fire than to donate it to these guys. It's tax deductible. You'll be supporting a good cause. And you'll once more be giving me an incentive to actually get off my a**. Such a deal.
Click around on the web site. There are usually lots of buttons there to help relieve you of your money.
Cancer can feel overwhelming, for patients and their families. It can be confusing and frightening. Fortunately, when it comes to living with cancer, Wellness House is there.
The welcoming, encouraging feeling starts the moment you walk in the door. They aren’t located in a hospital or an office building. Rather, they are in a warm, friendly home in a neighborhood where you will find caring people with the expertise and eagerness to help. Their hope is that people will feel less alone, more informed, and more empowered to take on the challenge of facing cancer.
With support groups, exercise and nutrition classes, social events, and much, much more, Wellness House is designed to give back the strength, community, and control that cancer can take away. Since you can’t put a price on these things, they don’t either - there’s absolutely no charge for all of the programs and services that they offer.
This cause is very important to me, and I hope you will join me by making a donation.
