How I started my "walk"...
I'm joining some of our other team members and also walking in Phoenix. It's daunting to think of walking 120 miles, but I'll just take it one day at a time, and one foot in front of the other. I really can't walk away....everyone deserves a lifetime!

Thank you so very much, Jan, for giving me a place to stay and taking me to the airport.
Thank you, Deb, for helping me decorate my shirt.
Thank you, team, for EVERYTHING!!!

Each year, we invite a few participants to play a special role in our Susan G. Komen Tampa Bay 3-Day for the Cure Ceremonies. We ask a small group of participants to carry flags symbolizing their connection to breast cancer during our Opening Ceremony, Closing Ceremony or both. These flags represent not just the individual flagbearer's connection, but the impact this disease has had on everyone in our 3-Day for the Cure participant community. It is a memorable way to honor the people in our lives who've been touched by breast cancer.
I'm reaching out with an invitation for you to play a special part in our Survivor Circle this year. There will be 8 Survivor flags in our 2011 Susan G. Komen Tampa Bay 3-Day for the Cure ceremonies and I'd like you to carry the flag symbolizing Optimism and our determination that there will be a cure for breast cancer in our lifetime. Deb Studebaker has nominated you to carry a flag this year, saying your nickname is Sunni because you "can light up a room with a smile, and everyone who meets her becomes a friend for life... I'm happy to call her a friend, and proud to nominate her to carry a flag."

a former high school student, and now one whom I consider a very dear friend, informed me that her company is matching her VERY GENEROUS donation. Words are do not suffice to tell you how proud I am of you, dear Gayle. You've done well in life and I'm so very honored to call you a friend after so many years being apart.
Much love from your "coach",

I lost my mom to breast cancer 15 years ago when she was only 48 years old. She was diagnosed when she was 46...the same age I am now. I was 31 when Mom died, but in 2 years, when I'm 48 my little girl will only be 9. Turning 46 was a HUGE wake up call for me. This is my year to get healthy, fit, and active...and to be able to run in my mom's memory.

Gayle, Lynn, and Patty, you pushed me over the edge. Thank you so very much....and Patty, I'm walking for your boss, too!

Sounds like a cliche, but I was on my way home from the airport in Philly, and opened up my e-mail with a HUGE surprise. Three people, Carol, Jim, and Jeff, pushed my donation chart a LOT higher. Wow...what a gracious gift from these caring individuals. Triple thank yous!!!

Today I posted a message on FB and had eight responses, which put me half way to my goal. Flight attendants ROCK! (Also two donations from family as well.)
Thank you EVERYONE !!!
For some unknown reason, I can't update the part of my 3 day page to honor/remember people. Here are some names I'll carry with me during my walk:
Michele P. Cox in honor of Micheline Peltier
Wendy for Claire
Please let me know if there are other names you'd like me to carry in the walk.
Hugs and love to all ~

Breast Cancer Facts:
Breast cancer is the most frequently diagnosed cancer and is the leading cause of death among women worldwide.
About 1.4 million women are diagnosed with breast cancer globally each year.
About 456,000 die from the disease each year.
Somewhere in the world, a woman dies from breast cancer every 69 seconds.
Incidence rates are increasing five percent annually in low-resource countries.
Susan G. Komen for the Cure® partners with or funds programs in 50 countries to end suffering from breast cancer.
Komen Founder and CEO Nancy G. Brinker, Goodwill Ambassador for Cancer Control for the U.N.'s World Health Organization, is urging global health officials to include cancer in global health agendas.
Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure Facts:
The Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure is a 60-mile walk for women and men who want to make a personal difference in the fight to end breast cancer. Participants commit to raise at
least $2,300 and spend several months training to prepare for the event. They devote the entire three-day weekend to the cause.
Since its inception in 2003, nearly $500 million has been raised through Komen 3-Day for the Cure donations, contributions and sponsorships.
3-Day for the Cure net proceeds help pay for vital global breast cancer research and local community programs supporting education, screening and treatment. Komen for the Cure paid for half a million breast screenings in 2009--part of a nearly $1.5 billion commitment to research, advocacy and community programs since Komen was founded in 1982.
3-Day for the Cure participants walk an average of 20 miles a day during the event. Participants are provided meals, snacks, drinks, shower facilities, tents, safety guidelines and
24-hour medical support--all resources needed for a safe and memorable experience. A crew of volunteers spends the entire weekend with walkers and staff to make the event possible.
