Bloggers For The Cure - Virtual Rally

In observance of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and leading up to our local Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure, Oct. 16, I'm hosting a virtual rally, Bloggers For The Cure.

This year makes my 5th Race For the Cure, and the 3rd year my friend and I have will walk with our daughters. I wanted to do something extra this time. I considered having a blogger meetup, or rally, and came up with something even better.

What is it?
Bloggers For The Cure, is a rally, only a virtual one, blog hop style. And what better way to help support a very important cause, by using our voices as a bloggers for the awareness of breast cancer, while influencing others.

It's time to spread the message of awareness throughout our virtual community.

How to participate?
You can blog for the cure by writing a post about: Why you race; Saving 2nd Base; Being a survivor; Personal experiences with breast cancer, or what ever moves you.

Not only is this rally about strengthening the awareness of breast cancer, but strengthening our online communities. Your rally post will be linked to this Bloggers For The Cure post, and all those who participate have the opportunity to read your stories.

What Else?
*Each Blogger For The Cure post should include the above badge, with a link back to this post.

* In the Mr. Linky, paste your post's URL/permalink to that post only, not your main page.

* If you chose, encourage others to participate in their area's 'Race For The Cure,' or make donations to the Susan G. Komen Foundation.

* And don't forget to comment, and follow each others blogs.

Let's get this rally started!
