FREE TEE SHIRT FUNDRAISER 2010
TEE SHIRT FUNDRAISER TO
BENEFIT BERNER CANCER RESEARCH
Results so far
12/9/2010 - I just wrote a check and will
be sending it to Joye tonight for $3180.00. That includes
80% of the purchase price of the shirts and any money left over from
the shipping fees.
I do have a limited
number of short sleeve shirts that are available for purchase in
adult sizes S, M, L and XL. Please email me if you are interested in
purchasing one of these fantastic shirts designed by Jaime Meyers.
A Chicago Berner owner
and active BARC foster/transport/owner was devastated by the news
that her first failed foster, Chloe had MH. Chloe was just six years
old, the same age that Julies first Berner, Monty, died of the
same disease. Julie has been training to run the Chicago Marathon
for about a year. Of late, she has been dedicating her training
races (usually ½ marathons) to dogs of friends that have passed
by wearing a button. As she waited on pins and needles for Chloes
diagnosis, she pleaded in one post please, no more
buttons. Sadly, that plea didnt reach the right ears.
Right now, she is in the hardest part of the training for the race
on 10/10/10. She is running longer than she has ever run before, and
running helps divert her mind from the path that she is on having
sadly now recently lost Chloe to this awful cancer.
It was everyones
sincere hope that Julies husband would be able to meet her at
the finish line with her three Berners. Sadly, only Sherman and
Howard will be there. In my heart, I know Chloe will be running
every step with Julie, even though she wont be at the finish

and Brian at the most recent Berner Birthday Bash.
To help show support for
Julie in this difficult part of her training, I suggested a group of
us become Berner Boosters and bring the dogs down to the race to
keep her spirits up over the course of 26.1 miles. Then, I thought
it would be fun to have shirts for us all to wear. Not being one to
keep things simple, I then thought that maybe this could be a bit
more global and I could turn it into a fundraiser in Chloes
memory, with all proceeds donated to cancer research. I asked Jaime
Meyers if she would be willing to design the art for the shirt and
she has outdone herself.
