breastcancerwalk 002

Dear Friends,

Once again this year I am leading an effort for the fight against breast cancer in honor of our friend and colleague Cynthia Simms, who is a cancer survivor!

I am asking for your support either through a monetary donation or better yet to walk with me on

September 26, 2009

Symphony Park at South Park Mall

Registration: 9am Walk: 10am

Webpage Link: http://main.acsevents.org/site/TR/MakingStridesAgainstBreastCancer/MSABCFY10SouthAtlantic?pg=entry&fr_id=19946 (Click on Donate or Find a Team – Our Team Name is Carrier Cares)

Please consider being a part of this important event and for a great cause. I understand this year has been a tough year on everyone financially but if you donate just one dollar and ask your family and friends to in turn donate just one dollar the proceeds add up fast. You can easily make donations by linking to the webpage I set up through the cancer society. (The link is above under the walk information) You can make donations online and so can your friends and family. If you prefer to give donations the “old fashioned” way that is okay too – just contact me.

Last year we had a group of us walk and it was a fun experience. It does not take up your whole day and because it is right there at South park Mall you can go to lunch after the walk or shopping etc. I will bring breakfast for everyone – just let me know if you are planning to join. It really was a great time for all who participated.

We are all affected by cancer, whether it be a mother, sister, aunt, friend and coworker. Here is our opportunity to walk together and make a difference. This is NOT limited to Carrier employees – you are welcome to bring family members, friends etc. The more we get the more we help.

You can visit www.cancer.org/stridesonline to learn more about Making Strides Against Breast Cancer. I have also put pamphlets and information in the break room for those who want to take information home to family or friends.

You can also make a donation and take advantage of the matching gift program for any donations they choose to make over $25 at the following link: https://www.easymatch.com/utc/

Please contact me if you would like to be part of a walking team. I would like to ask if you can let me know by early next week. Consider being a part of this event – it is for a good cause and a good person. You can contact me by phone at 704-599-4550 ext 4059 or by email at kristen.scutella@carrier.utc.com.

Sincerely,

Kristen Scutella

PB_Shnoz_brochure3I got this from my friend Vanessa and I wanted to share it in case anyone was interested (especially those near Rochester). It is a golf tournament with dinner included ($99 solo player; $396 foursome) or just the dinner ($40). Anyway, here’s her e-mail:

I hope everyone is doing well. I am writing to invite you to learn about the 4th annual Shnozfest- a fundraiser in memory of my brother, Jonathan. This year Shnozfest will be raising funds for the Penfield High School Scholarship Association by means of a golf tournament and/or dinner with many raffles thanks to local donations.

Shnozfest takes place on August 8 in Penfield, at Shadow Pines Golf Course. Dinner will include a steak and chicken buffet, music and prizes. Please consider supporting this important event, as it provides a monetary award to a graduating senior who is entering the field of medicine. Jonathan was on his way to becoming a doctor, and although he cannot help others, we can fulfill his dream by helping in this small way.

Thank you!
Vanessa, the Ozimek family and friends

Hi everyone! I am walking in the Relay for Life Cancer walk in Clyde on July 17th and was wondering if anyone would like to contribute toward the cause. The event is taking place at the end of Orchard Street and I am very excited to be able to participate. Nana has the hook ups to purchase luminary candles in remebrance of a friend /loved one. They may be purchased for $5. It is happening on the 17th so if you are interested i would appreciate hearing from you by then. Thanks so much for anything! Love to all!
Edited:Mom told me the final numbers are not in but so far Clyde’s Relay has raised over 27,000!

I watched her documentary- it was difficult- she was courageous but unfortunately we lost another one to cancer- hopefully soon we can find a cure. We can’t keep losing our loved ones at such young ages.
