How you can help Flint Group help people with cancer


You may have seen Flinster Andy Reierson’s blog post a couple weeks ago about the work our Duluth office did for the Lake Superior Dragon Boat Festival, a fundraiser put on by local Rotary Clubs. We’ve been partnering with festival organizers the past two years, not only creating event materials, but also donning our paddle pants for the races.

The 2012 festival is Saturday, August 25 – just four days away. And although the creative projects are finished and our intense training regime is nearly complete – thank God, I don’t think I can do another desk squat or water-cooler lunge – there is still fundraising to be done.

Donations from this year’s event benefit the festival’s charitable partner, Essentia Health Foundation, which is giving all funds to local cancer survivorship programs. Our goal is to raise at least $1,000 – hopefully more.

That’s where you come in.

Here at Flint Group, we all know someone who has been affected by cancer. I’m sure you do, too. That’s why we’ve set up an online fundraising page where you can donate to our team, We Thought This Was Bowling (don’t ask, there’s no creative rationale for this one).

You can give in any amount; even a dollar will help!

Our team took a walk down to Lake Superior last week to feel the Gitchi Gummi spirit and become “one with the water.” Check out our pics:

We hope you’ll make a donation and join us in celebrating survivorship and improving the lives of people who have cancer. Thanks for your support, and be sure to check out Flint Group’s Facebook page for photos after the event.

Paddles up!
