Today my Husband, Son, Daughter in Law and I spent two hours driving BMW cars as part of the Susan G. Koman Drive for a Cure. For every mile we drove over a charted course BMW of North America will donate $1.00 towards finding a cure for breast cancer. There were many that took time out of their busy day to help this worthy cause. Our family drove the 12 mile course a total of seven times. It was a lot of fun cruising around in beautiful brand-new white, fully loaded cars. I think I liked the snazzy convertible the best. It is a bit more than my pocket can afford but a wonderful experience.
This 2009 BMW is covered with drivers signatures which everyone can sign at the end of the driving time.
Worldwide, every 29 seconds a case of breast cancer is diagnosed.
More than 1 in 4 women age 40 and over still do not receive regular mammograms in spite of the proven benefits.
Early detection can help save lives. Start getting mammograms at age 40 unless your Doctor recommends starting earlier.

Sounds like my kind of fun(d) raiser

I have had the privilege of doing this drive in several locations and i think it is a fun way to hopefully be a part of the cure.
p.s. i love the convertibles too!

I have never heard of this fund raiser before. I'm going to check their website.

Bravo to you and your family. :)

Interesting. I have not seen anything like this before.

Patty, my wife of almost 53 years, has had breast cancer twice. Once in each breast separated by ten years. The last time was in 2007 and 2008 and she finished up her radiation treatments this spring. She is and will be on chemo for a long time.

Thanks for visiting my blog today.

I'm still waiting on my BMW! :)

What a worthy cause. In the UK only women over 50 get offered mamagrams

Hello my dear Photowannabe,
long time I didn´t cross your blog, I am so occupied by my "real" job. I am sorry ..
Normaly I don´t have any relations to Mercedes or BMW in respect of our environment, clima ... and and. Any way ... the idea of the "drive for cure" is quiet good. And it is nice did you enjoyed!
Have nice weekend

You and your family are really amazing. You are always ready for the action in order to help what ever way you can. May God bless you all for your good deeds! This post is touching and really impressive!

Sounds like something I would enjoy doing more than a "walk-a-thon"! Maybe they'll do something like that down my way one day. BMW has a plant not too far from here in SC.

Way to have fun and make a difference!

Kudos, Sue. What a fun way to support a worthy cause. A close friend whose mom's a breast cancer survivor ran the Rock n Roll Marathon in san Diego early this month for the same cause. They all together raised close to 12 million $ for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. We are so proud of him :)
