For the past 5 years we have participated in the Avon 39 Breast Cancer Walk. Every year, in 4 different cities, brought new memories and experiences. We have been blessed to walk the 39.3 miles side by side with our children and husbands.
This year we have decided to challenge ourselves and walk 60 miles in 3 days! We will walk the streets of Atlanta in October of 2018. We will have supportive husbands heading up the “tailgate crew”. While this walk will be more difficult than past walks, we are confident with the continued support from family and friends that we can complete the 60 miles.
Several of our family memebers have been diagnosed with Breast Cancer. Our amazing grandmother, Marion, lost her battle with breast cancer when she was only 57. She had 3 daughters who are breast cancer survivors. Maureen is the first, and hopefully the last, of the third generation. Our team, Marion Strong, walks in my grandmother’s honor.
We have committed to raising $4,600.00 for the Susan G. Komen foundation but hope to raise more! Donating is easy. If you would like to donate on-line, please click on the donate button in the top right corner and type in one of our names.
Every 3 minutes someone in the world is diagnosed with breast cancer. This is something that needs to change. Your contribution will help support medical research, education and early detection programs, and clinical care and support services for men and women with breast cancer in communities across the country.
Thanks so much for helping to make this walk possible!
