Hayli and Liz, Running With a Purpose

Posted on September 20th, 2012

Hayli and Liz, the inspirational duo behind the blog runningwithapurpose.com, are an amazing team demonstrating how a struggle with cancer can impact family members and supportive friends.

For Hayli, running a marathon has always been a bucket list item that she will finally be able to tick off on October 28 at the Marine Corps Marathon in Washington, D.C. The event is also an opportunity for her to support her brother and cousin, both Marines, and her friends to raise money for an organization near and dear to her heart, Cancer Services of Northeast Indiana.

For Liz, this marathon represents a tribute to the memory of her mother who passed away in August from ovarian cancer. It also is an opportunity for her to make a contribution to the organization that provided information and support during her mother’s year long struggle.

“I can’t think of a more distinguished way to remember my mom during a 26.2 mile run than to know that I’m running for a purpose this time around; and that the money we raise will help others directly feel the impact of Cancer Services of Northeast Indiana,” she says.

Liz’s mother Barb was diagnosed with stage 3 ovarian cancer in June 2011 at the age of 60. In July, she began chemotherapy and joined a gynecological cancer support group at Cancer Services.

“CSNI was by my mom’s side [and] helped surround her with people who had been and were going through her same experience,” she says.

This past Christmas, the girls decided that for Hayli’s first and Liz’s third marathon, they would do more than participate but also raise money to benefit CSNI. After months of training for the 26.2 mile event in separate states (Liz is living Colorado and Hayli in Indiana) they registered for the MCM in March and are now just over a month away from the starting line.

“It is an honor to run for those who have been close to us and lost their battle with cancer,” Hayli says.

Please consider supporting Hayli and Liz’s cause by donating in memory of Liz’s mom, Barb, and anyone who has been touched by the care and support of Cancer Services.

Men’s Expo Car Demolition Fundraiser a “SMASH”!

Posted on September 17th, 2012

On a day packed with what the event’s organizers describe as “everything MAN,” from Harleys and sports, to various meats on buns and vendors from across the area, the 7th Annual Men’s Expo at Headwater’s Park was a great success! The event also included a fundraiser that contributed to our organization through a Car Smash that raised money by selling T-shirts and swings of a baseball bat directed at a recycled, dilapidated car.

The car was donated by Car Recyclers of North Manchester Indiana, a salvage yard and event participant. Kelly and Katrina Kerlin from the company also donated their time for the afternoon, hyping the crowd and enticing people to roll up their sleeves and take a swing. Our own long time supporters and partners of the upcoming 5th Annual Bust a Move art auction, The Fort Wayne Derby Girls, were also there to lend their muscle to the effort.

We would like to thank Kelly and Katrina Kerlin from Car Recyclers of North Manchester for their time and donation, with special thanks to their daughter for raising money by tossing a football with participants for donations, as well. What a great idea to raise money at a Men’s Expo!

5th Annual Bust a Move

Posted on September 10th, 2012

We are partnering with The Fort Wayne Derby Girls to host the 5th Annual Bust a Move auction and fundraiser to benefit women with breast cancer in our community on Friday, October 5, 2012, at the Fort Wayne Museum of Art from 6:00 – 9:00 PM.

For Bust a Move, local artists, breast cancer survivors, and derby girls volunteer their talents and their bodies to create unique, inspiring cast representations of the female bust and the emotions associated with breast cancer. Local artists modified the casts, using various artistic mediums, to create outstanding works of art. The art pieces will be auctioned at the event.

Join us for the 5th Annual Bust a Move. The event includes food, cocktails, entertainment, and a live auction of truly unique and inspiring works of art – all fashioned from the busts of breast cancer survivors and Derby Girls.

Tickets are available online at eventbrite.com.

View artwork from last year’s event at the gallery from Bust a Move 2011.
