Based on 74 lost pounds, each worth $0.01
My name is Christian Gomez, and i originate from Phoenix, Arizona.
In 2017, I decided I wanted to contribute to raising awareness for Breast Cancer Research. After some time of thinking about how to contribute i finally came across this “Pledge It” website. There I knew that this can be a very good way in supporting a cause i care so very much for. Breast Cancer Research is something very dear to my heart, because i have known women and families who have affected by this horrible disease. Also being an only child of a single mother, the fear of my mother getting this disease worries me.
Breast cancer is the second leading cause of death among women, and about 1 of 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their life time. Even though a cure is in the works, we must remember that thanks to the spread of awareness and donations that over 3.3 million breast cancer survivors are alive in the United States today.

About me: I am somebody who is known for always being in the gym and keeping a healthy lifestyle. In 2015, I went from weighing 295 lbs to weighing 210 lbs. I felt accomplished and happy that i was able to achieve something so difficult. After some time, i wanted to make another impact but this time to inspire others in some sort of way. I already lost weight once for me, but now i would love to lose weight for others.
That being said, I made a drastic lifestyle change to make this campaign a possibility. I decided to purposely gain almost 100 lbs in the duration of a year, in order to be able to raise a respectable amount for this charity. Hopefully this inspires others to change their way of life, or to even get involve some way with this charity.
Plan: A strict diet will be in effect, and the source of a gym during this weight loss journey will be LA Fitness. I will be holding this campaign till the Month of October since that is the month for Breast Cancer Awareness. My team and I are hoping to raise $5000 for this charity, but if for some reason we are unable to raise the goal amount. No matter how much we raise, whatever amount of weight lost, I myself am donating $10/lb. We will be holding weigh ins every two weeks, and the campaign will end Mid October. All progress will be tracked via social media. My team and i will be controlling our social media and responding to any messages or questions.
(Venmo donations can be made, to help maintain a current gym membership).
Personal Donations highly appreciated
