I have been wanting to do something amazing like this for a very long time, but have lacked true, undeniable, motivation.
The lack of motivation ends now.
This past fall, my aunt was diagnosed with breast cancer. As you can magine, this was a huge shock to myself and my entire family. She is currently going through treatment and will begin chemo soon.
The second I heard about this, it changed my view on a lot of things. I was always one of those people that always thought breast cancer impacts someone else's life, not mine or my families.
Since her diagnosis I have learned quite a bit about the disease and will continue to do so.
I really want to make a difference though and I think this is my way to do it.
As much as this will be a struggle emotionally, it will be a struggle physically as well. I have plantar fasciitis, so I get pretty intense pain when I walk or stand for long periods of time. As you can imagine, 20 miles a day for 3 days isn't going to feel great. I thought about not doing it for this simple reason. Then I realized that the amount of pain I will most likely experience is NOTHING compared to those that are battling breast cancer, or the pain of losing someone to this disease. So I am determined to do this.
If I do not raise at least $2,300 I cannot participate in the walk. Please help me reach my goal to participate in such an amazing event.
