"Running with Steve Ruddy" by Rock n Ruddy - over 1 year ago

"Running With Steve Ruddy" T-Shirt Photo

"Steve Ruddy passed away on April 7, 2012 just as he was finishing a 10 mile run; he was almost home. Steve loved running and he played guitar and was passionate about music. When we heard that the Rock n Roll Half Marathon was coming to San Francisco for the first time, on April 7, 2013, we knew running or walking it was the right way to spend the day. Steve's dad, sisters, wife and many friends signed up (more tried to sign up but the race sold out too quickly!) to run. Another group of over 20 of Steve's friends took over an aid station, dressed in 80's rock outfits, and handed out water, gatorade and beer to thirsty runners. Any year that Steve didn't do the San Francisco marathon he was volunteering at an aid station. Unfortunately not everyone was in the group photo since some got the race start late and had to go straight to the start - 18 of us ran in honor of Steve. Someone running asked two of us which race our shirt was from since he hadn't seen it before, when we explained it he told us "that's really great, I actually feel his spirit with me right now" and he started running faster!"

Colon Cancer Challenge Team Photo 2013 T-Shirt Photo

"Every year, in late March or early April, I gather together friends and family for the annual Colon Cancer Challenge in Central Park in NYC. Some of us walk, some of us run, but all of us do it to remember loved ones we lost to the disease. I unfortunately lost both my father (2007) and my mother (2010) to the disease, and so I've become quite the poster boy for colon cancer awareness. This year we had our biggest team yet - 14 people - and I hope it grows as the years go on. :)"

Family at P. Taylor Hope Lodge Donation Drive by kbabineaux - over 1 year ago

Family At P. Taylor Hope Lodge Donation Drive T-Shirt Photo

"My cousin Gigi passed away three years ago from cervical cancer. She was 39 years old. My daughter decided to do a donation drive to the Patrick Taylor Hope Lodge, for her National Honor Society service project. Gigi and her parents stayed there free of charge as she went through very painful chemo treatments. It was very good for our entire family...especially Gigi's parents. We decided to make it an annual event. This year was the third year and I thought we should get t-shirts so that everyone one notice our group as we visited the French Quarter in New Orleans and hopefully ask questions about them. Hopefully more people can learn about this great place. Drew Brees knows about it. He donated a million dollars to renovate the lobby and rooms. It is fabulous. I started out by finding the website to customink online. Shea got me started, Erickka helped me to tweak things and Matt completed my order the next day. They were wonderful...and excited about what our group was doing. The shirts were in my hand 5 days after the order......and 6 days earlier than the promised date...I might add. The donation drive was a huge success and we ended our day with an outing to the Olive Garden, which was Gigi's favorite place to eat. Thanks Customink for making us one sharp looking group.:):)"

Celebration of Life by Jen - over 1 year ago

Celebration Of Life T-Shirt Photo

"My son was killed in a car accident on October 10, 2012. His 21st birthday would have been March 17, 2013 (St. Patrick's Day). His name was Patrick Papale, he was lovingly nicknamed "PP" by all his friends. I decided to have a Celebration of Life party to honor him on his birthday. A couple of friends of his came up with the "Happy St. PP's Day" for the front and the back has a memorial poem, his picture and then his dates. The shirt needed to be perfect for me. This day was a very important part of my healing process. My son will be forever loved and missed but with the help of customink.com there was little stress as far as the shirt was concerned. Every person that I talked was very interested in making sure my expectations were met and more, along with many seemed very sympathetic for my particular situation. Thank you very much."

Pops' Pride - Forever in Our Hearts - Relay for Life by Mike - over 1 year ago

Pops' Pride   Forever In Our Hearts   Relay For Life T-Shirt Photo

"Since my father was diagnosed with lung cancer in early 2011, family and friends have gathered together to fight cancer at our local Relay for Life event in Delran, NJ. Sadly, Pops lost his battle with cancer shortly after the first Relay for Life event. When family members visited Disney World about a year after his death, they honored him by wearing their Pops' Pride T-shirts and bringing along my father's T-shirt for a perfect picture with Cinderella Castle as the backdrop. We couldn't have been happier with the service provided by CustomInk. We will be using CustomInk for years to come!"

God Made Her Our Angel by ljeang84 - over 1 year ago

God Made Her Our Angel T-Shirt Photo

"I'm an active runner and love to run 5k's and 10k's whenever I get a chance to do. So when the MD Anderson SCOPE 5k race came up on my calendar I signed myself up and my family! MD Anderson was my home away from home when I was young as my grandma was receiving treatment for colon and liver cancer. She was the bravest person I knew and fought tooth & nail trying to beat her cancer. Although she didn't win her battle with cancer, her memory and strength will always live within our whole family. I've used CustomInk before for our family reunion last summer so when my mom mentioned she wanted to get shirts made for the race I knew I would go back to CustomInk. It was a seamless process and I loved working with everyone on the team to make changes & corrections on the shirts. They even made it in before the guaranteed date! I recommend CustomInk to everyone I get a chance to and can't wait to use them for our next event."

"The 2nd Annual Suzanne M. DiLernia Scholarship Fundraiser! Suzanne DiLernia was a bright, passionate, promising law student when she lost her battle with cancer. The Suzanne M. DiLernia Memorial Scholarship Foundation was created to keep Sue’s memory alive by awarding a scholarship to a graduating senior who best exemplifies Sue’s qualities. We wanted to show our love for Sue while raising money for the foundation and the "I Heart Sue" shirts made that possible. Thank you CustomInk! You're always a pleasure to work with and we definitely plan on continuing to order shirts from CustomInk in the years to come."
