Last year pink cupcakes on the route!
One day, we won't need to have 3-Day events like the one here in San Diego this November. Breast cancer will be a thing of the past. You'll read about it. Unfortunately, we're not there yet. It's still here, and it's something that still touches everyone's life at some point - some more directly than others. But each year, thanks to events like this and donations like yours, we're getting closer to finding a cure.
So this year I'm back for my third 3-Day For The Cure. In 2010, I walked all sixty miles in the pouring rain. (Not the drizzle or light sprinkles that make for a nice all-day walk. . .the kind of heavy rain that make weathermen VERY unpopular along the route.) In 2011, I had an issue with my left knee - and didn't want to walk the third day. (Night 2 I was up every two hours with an ice pack on it - and got no sleep. I think I went too fast on Day 1.) But I found the determination to complete the walk Day 3 with some help from the friendly PT staff along the route. (Those of you that know me know I don't like to be passed on the freeway, so walking so slowly last year on Sunday was quite difficult for me.) I'm quite excited about November 19th as 2012 promises to be - well - it promises to be another sixty miles in November. I can't think of a better way to spend a November weekend.
I'll have updates on the training and walk itself on my blog, and I'll have lots of information about the weather as walkers train - and get ready for the big event - in the Participation Center for walkers and staff. Also, I'll be covering the event for my employer (KFMB-TV) as well as participating.
Every donation, large or small, makes a huge difference. Remember, your donation goes to local programs and every dollar is one step closer to finding a cure for cancer in our lifetime! Thank you for your support -
Please support me as I take an amazing journey in the fight to end breast cancer! The Susan G. Komen 3-Day TM is a 60-mile walk over the course of three days. Net proceeds from the 3-Day are invested in breast cancer research and community programs.
