This was in my e-mail this morning and well I find it disingenuous at a minimum. I am actually a little bit offended.
Ok, so not to put too fine a point on it, but I left the Main Line to move to Chester County. They are blessedly not one and the same, and I totally object (as a survivor of breast cancer who participated in this event) to Great Valley being lumped into the Main Line for some marketing schmaltz.
Shame on you!!
The Great Valley, for which the high school is named which hosts the event, has a fabulous history. And it is NOT on the Main Line. NOT even close.
This is actually enough to make me lose interest in the event. If the American Cancer Society can’t be proud that part of their event is held in Chester County at Great Valley High School, why on earth would I want to participate ? It’s like the American Cancer Society is ashamed to say they hold part of this nationwide event in Chester County.
It’s where I live. I am proud of where I live and most importantly as a survivor, Chester County has a much more agreeable quality of life for me as a survivor.
