YES...I am doing it again!!!
I started my journey with my 1st Susan G. Komen 3 Day Walk in 2006 when my younger sister (also the captain of our FEET TO BEAT Team) asked me to consider joining her newly created team. She encouraged me to "dig deep" and think about the impact of helping breast cancer patients today, and in the FUTURE!!
She reminded me of how fortunate we were with our own health. Carolyn then shared her own personal experience with the the 3 day walk. I remember saying to her, "I'm not sure if I can walk 60 miles" ...but guess what?
I DID IT!!!
And this year marks my 13th year participating in the Susan G Komen 3 Day Walk! I couldn't be more proud of the people that I have meet from all over, year after year. The survivors and the folks that have walked in memory of family or friends that have suffered, or continue to suffer from this disease have a special place in my heart.
Each year, I pray for and honor my family members and friends that have been affected by this horrible disease. Some have overcome it, others, sadly, have not.
We do, however, continue to make progress and we must look toward the future. My girls are now 17 and 15. I pray for a the day that we no longer have to worry about breast cancer!!
Thanks to all of you for your prayers and past donations.
Will you please support me as I continue take an incredible challenge to make an impact in the fight to end breast cancer. The Susan G. Komen 3-Day® isn’t just a 60-mile walk over the course of three days—it’s a journey to the end of breast cancer. In 2016, Komen announced a Bold Goal—to reduce the current number of breast cancer deaths by 50% in the U.S. by 2026. That’s why I’m walking, and raising money—to make that goal a reality.
