Notes from the Field: Cupcakes For A Cause

On March 21, I'm running the Fleet Half Marathon in Hampshire, UK to raise money for Christopher's Smile.

Christopher’s Smile is a wonderful organization that was set up in October 2008 by Karen and Kevin Capel following the tragic death of their only son Christopher from medulloblastoma, an aggressive childhood brain tumor.  Christopher ’s Smile aims to raise money to fund development of new drugs to treat medulloblastoma and other childhood cancers without devastating side effects.  Funded researchers also collaborate with those doing similar research right here at the wonderful Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP).

In light of it all, I decided to throw a little soiree, combining two great things for one good cause: Cupcakes and Champagne!  I am convinced that lovely little things can make magic happen. 

For more information, please check out my fundraising page:  http://www.virginmoneygiving.com/JessicaPizzo. And don't forget, in helping others we also give hope!
