PK's CureSearch Ultimate Hike Page for a Cure
Dear Friends and Family:
I hope you all are well, and I thank you for visiting my CureSearch Ultimate Hike page! I am personally reaching out to you all to let you know that I am going to participate again in an event that truly changed by life last year--CureSearch's Ultimate Hike in Canann Valley, WV--to raise money for pediatric cancer research.
As I just mentioned, I am participating in a true ultimate challenge on June 8th of this year - I will be hiking 21+ miles up and down the mountains of the Canaan Valley backcountry of WV to raise funds for children's cancer research; and with your help, I can surpass my fundraising goal of 3500.00! More specifically, I am hiking these 21+ miles in honor of a family friend--her name is Riley Lowrance--and this young hero has been battling cancer for the last few years of her young life--and she has been kicking cancer's butt!!! Riley is my adopted little sister from Kenosha Wisconsin (a friend of the family)--and a true inspiration to many people, in many states, including Wisconsin, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and of course, West "By God" Virginia. She is a cancer warrior, along with being a beautiful, intelligent, and compassionate young lady who is going to go on to accomplish great things in her life! So on June 8th, I will be trudging in the early morning hours through late early evening, climbing mountains, crossing creeks, and sharing stories with other great people who are hiking in honor of other brave children who are battling this horrific disease. I will be walking alongside survivors, parents of survivors and those who have lost a child, and many friends of those children who continue to fight or have passed on from this earth to enter into Heaven. After completing the hike last year, my soul was touched by the great people I met who have dedicated their time and effort to go tell cancer to take a hike.
Please, if possible, make a donation in any amount, and make a difference in the lives of the 43 children diagnosed with cancer each day. The money I raise will support CureSearch for Children's Cancer, a national non-profit foundation whose mission is to fund and support targeted and innovative children's cancer research, with measurable results. They are the authoritative source for information resources about children's cancer for families and their support systems. Know this, 5 of the 43 children diagnosed with cancer every day do not survive....and that is not acceptable! Please, support me as I help change the odds for those children most at risk...We are our brother's and sister's keepers!
Thank you in advance for helping me achieve my goal.
Lastly, I ask for your thoughts and blessings for all of the hikers, including this mountaineer, as we tackle 21+ miles of WV mountain backcountry in honor of those brave young heroes that continue to battle, and especially for those who have moved on to Heaven. Your stories will continue to live on.
I love you all greatly, and thank you for being a part of my life.
Dr. Paul "PK" Klenowski (Aka Riley's Big Brother)
P.S. In the words of my little buddy, cancer warrior, and fellow hiker- who I met last year, Joseph C.--- #WorthIt Yes, it is!
