Cookies to Cure Cancer!

Survivors walking into closing ceremony

Hello foodie friends!

Two weekends from now I’ll be walking in the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Breast Cancer 3-Day.  My team, Walking for Udders, has been participating in this 60-mile walk since 2004, choosing a different city every season and raising thousands of dollars of the cause with every event. 

This year we’re walking in the Twin Cities, our 10th event! 

In order to participate, the two walkers on our team EACH need to raise $2,300!  If we don’t raise it, we pay for it!  After this event we’ll have raised $55,000 for the Susan G. Komen for the Cure, which is one of the industry leaders in raising awareness and funding life-saving research.  Over the years hundreds of friends of ours have donated generously, but this year we’re running a little under in our fundraising.

So I’m combining my love for this event with my baking explorations:

For every $10 donated to my team between now and the middle of September, I’ll donate a cookie to a local Breast Cancer organization in thanks for all their hard work in finding a cure!

If we get our necessary $4,600, that’s 460 cookies!  And even more than that…

Whoever makes the largest donation will get 24 of these cookies delivered to their home and will help me choose the charity or organization(s) to receive these cookies!

I haven’t made them yet, but they’ll be flavorful shortbread cutout cookies in the shape of pink ribbons, with beautiful piping, along the lines of these cookies I’ve made for other events.

Friendly Cut-Outs

Please tell your friends, pass this along, and help us raise money for the cure!



Thank you!!!
