Denise Peterson and I were granted a charity place to run for World Child Cancer in the 2017 London Marathon. This September Denise and I have teamed together to raise money for World Child Cancer for #ChildhoodCancerAwarenessMonth. In developed countries, such as the United States and the United Kingdom, 80% of children diagnosed with cancer will survive. Sadly, in developing countries the survival rates can be as low as 10%. World Child Cancer supports programs in countries such as Ghana and Myanmar to help children obtain the treatment they need to survive.
This September we are reaching out asking everyone to help by picking a day to hold their own #GoldWalk and to please visit our page and make a donation. Any little bit helps as small amounts will add up quickly. For the walk, you can choose the date and the distance you would like to walk.
Donate at least $20.00 and we will send you a circle tag with Caitriona Balfe’s photo, a WCC pin and wristband. Please make sure to give us your address in a private message on Facebook or Twitter. All proceeds go directly to World Child Cancer so they can help children survive this terrible disease.

Denise and I thank you for your time and generosity. We are beginning our marathon training and will do our best to represent ThePeakPosse and the Outlander fandom in the 2017 London Marathon on April 23, 2017.
Our fellow Posse sisters are also running in the London Marathon. Sue Broderick represents Bloodwise and Bonnie Terbush will run for Action for Children. A great way to help us with our fundraising is to order these cool London Marathon T-shirts from Zazzle. The proceeds from the London Marathon shirts will be divided up between World Child Cancer, Bloodwise, and Action for Children. Check out the link and order your shirts now – CLICK HERE!
As always, thank you for your support and generosity.
Barbara and Denise
