I hope you’re living strong every day, but if not, make tomorrow the day you go for it. Friday, October 2 is LIVESTRONG Day, after all. Know what that means? LIVESTRONG Day is the one-day initiative of the Lance Armstrong Foundation, intended to unite people affected by cancer by raising awareness on a global level and in communities across the country.
Now, there are all kinds of official things you could have done leading up to this day (and if you did, good for you!), and there might be events and activities taking place right where you live, but you don’t even need to put a whole lot of effort into it. Keep it simple — wear that rubbery yellow bracelet, donate a few dollars to a good cause, make a meal for a neighbor you know is going through cancer treatment. Gosh, even ask someone who is surviving the disease how everything is going.
Here are some ideas for celebrating at work. And if you want to eat out, why not head to Buca di Beppo, where 20 percent of your bill will be donated to the cause. If you really want to be inspired, check out what these clever folks have done.
