Michelle Nasers is the co-founder of Craft Beer in Michigan and an incredible woman that we are lucky enough to call a friend and a cancer survivor. Michelle will be hosting a fundraiser for the American Cancer Society this Sunday October 14, 2012 at Original Gravity. Here is a quote from the event’s Facebook page that tells her story…
“I will be running (and walking) in the Detroit Free Press international half marathon on October 21st with the American Cancer Society DetermiNation team – something I never dreamed that I would be able to do when I was diagnosed with ovarian cancer 5 years ago. This race is my way of celebrating 5 years of survivorship, and in doing so, my goal is to raise $4200 – $100 for each of my years prior to diagnosis – for ACS.”
This event will be a lot of fun. The prizes are incredible and you get to help fight cancer. Here are the event details…
