CHALLENGE TO RAISE THE MOST MONEY DURING BREAST CANCER FUNDRAISER SURF DOG RICOCHET IS CURRENTLY IN THE LEAD WITH MORE THAN $3300 RAISED!

SURF DOG RICOCHET

SAN DIEGO, CA, February 14, 2011… Surf dog Ricochet, the SURFice dog who raised over $70,000 for charity in the last 15 months, has been challenged to raise more money than TV reality stars in a breast cancer fundraiser called “Reality Rally”

“Reality Rally” is the brainchild of Gillian Larsen, a contestant on the popular reality show, “Survivor Gabon”.  Gillian was voted off durin

g the 2nd show, giving her five weeks in the jungle to create what has become known as the premier Reality Star fundraiser.

Reality Rally is a three-day weekend event in Temecula, California, April 15-17 intended to raise funds for Michelle’s Place, a non profit 501(c)3 resource center in Murrieta where women can go for help in coping with the challenges of breast cancer. Michelle’s Place was started 10 years ago to fulfill a 26 year old daughters dying wish… to provide a haven and support center for those battling breast cancer.

When Ricochet heard there was fund raising involved, she contacted Gillian, and asked if she could help.  An immediate “alliance” was formed.  As Gillian learned of Ricochet’s philanthropic successes, she challenged the 110 participating reality TV stars from 36 different Reality Shows including Survivor, The Amazing Race, and Big Brother to raise more money than a dog!!  A challenge Ricochet was very excited to take on while helping women with breast cancer.

Ricochet has raised $3323 in the last several weeks, leaving the reality stars in her wake!  The next highest fundraiser is Gillian herself at $1035.  But, the competitive nature of the other reality stars kicked in, and social media is burning up with the challenge, and threads are asking for support from their family, friends and fans all over the world.  It’s turned into Reality versus FUReality!!

There is a “reward” for this challenge too. Anyone raising over $1000 wins a Hot Air balloon adventure with Grape Escape Hot Air Tours. Ricochet and Gillian are donating their “reward” to “help someone’s spirits soar” as they go through the arduous treatment for breast cancer. Women can contact Michelle’s Place to enter a drawing for the hot air balloon ride.  But, the real winners of this challenge will be all the women with breast cancer that benefit from Michelle’s Place… very possibly saving their lives.

Please “get on board”, and help keep Ricochet in the lead while blowing the rest of the reality stars out of the water, and supporting FUReality & breast cancer!  Just click this link to make a donation. http://www.active.com/donate/Realityrallystars/2011RRRSurfic .
