Chances for Children Arizona
As a not-for-profit organization, Chances for Children-Arizona aims to provide children in Arizona opportunities that otherwise may not be affordable to them. Chances for Children-Arizona believes in the power of the community as a provider of opportunity for youth. We want to provide a chance for all children. Chances for Children-Arizona is committed to fighting childhood obesity and improving quality of life by supporting partnerships and programs that provide access to sports, physical education, and character education.
"Team Endurance MO" is participating in www.Movember.com. The Endurance team is participating to bring much needed attention to cancers that affect men and to change the face of men's health. The funds raised during the Moustache journey go to the Prostate Cancer Foundation and to the Lance Armstrong Foundation (LIVESTRONG).
What many people don't know is that 1 in 6 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime and that testicular cancer is the most common cancer in men aged 18-35.
To join the Movember Team called Endurance MO's go to http://us.movember.com/register/60542. Once registered you will be sent all the information you need to get donations and get growing! Together we can change the face of men's health.
The Endurance team is a big fan of (year-round) holiday spirit - especially when it comes to the food and gift side of the season. And we appreciate that our clients love sharing their holiday spirit with us. But in the real spirit of the season, we'd like to pass that spirit on to those truly in need. In lieu of holiday treats and gifts for the Endurance team, share some of your spirit with others by making a contribution to the charity of your favorite team member. We appreciate you and your generous spirit and would are grateful for the opportunity to share it with others who truly are in need.
