My amazing friend, Stacey is participating in a sports endurance event as a member of The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Team in Training in memory of her friend Mary who lost her battle with Acute Myeloid Leukemia last December. Stacy will be riding with with Team Minnesota in America’s Most Beautiful Bike Ride around Lake Tahoe, a 72 mile long bike ride. She has several different climbs in the ride, the most notable are an 800 foot climb and a 1,000 foot climb done at elevations not normal for us in Minnesota. I admire Stacey so much for taking on this challenge in memory of Mary.
I am not doing a crazy long, really tough bike ride, but I would like to help Stacey out with her fundraising. Another friend of Stacey’s, Kris of Sugar Cookies to Peterbilts, came up with a fun idea to hold a bake sale and raffle to assist with the fundraising needed. The money raised will help find cures and better treatments for leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma.
I have three treats (gluten and dairy free, of course) in the bake sale: Brownie Bites, Snickerdoodles, and Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Blondies. If those don’t tickle your fancy, head on over to the bake sale and check out the other tasty treats up for sale. The bake sale starts tomorrow, May 2nd at 12 p.m. and runs through May 5th at 6 p.m. Central Time. Come on, let’s raise some money and help kick leukemia’s tail feathers!
