This is my 10th year and Team Tiara’s 13th year to walk for a cure! Please support me as I take another amazing journey in the fight against breast cancer!! The Breast Cancer 3-Day is a 60-mile walk over the course of three days. Net proceeds benefit Susan G. Komen for the Cure and the National Philanthropic Trust, funding important breast cancer research, education, screening, and treatment.
I started my journey walking in memory of my grandmother, Eloise Dorothy Schmieder who passed away in September of 2002. I soon began walking for other important people in my life. I walk in honor of our adopted grandmother, Shirley Rae Johnson, who is now CANCER FREE and a SURVIVOR!!!! I am also walking for a very special teammate and friend, Rachel Wickman and a dear friend, Lif Rios. They both lost their battle with this horrible disease. Rachel leaves behind her husband and 2 sons, Riley and Eli (7 and 8 years old), and Lif also leaves behind her husband and 2 children, Sophia and Thomas (10 and 12 years old). Finally, I am walking for my daughter, Ella Marie, so she will never have to! She is my whole world and my inspiration to help find a cure for breast cancer because I know walking 60 miles in 3 days doesn’t even compare to fighting this horrible disease. NO child should have to grow up without their precious mama! That's why I'm making the choice to take a stand and help find a cure!
I hope you'll share in this incredible adventure with me and support me in my fundraising efforts as I raise the minimum of $2,300 needed to walk. Please take a stand with me and make a TAX DEDUCTIBLE donation. EVERY DOLLAR HELPS!! Thank you for your support and generosity and for believing we can someday live in a world without breast cancer!
Isaiah 40:31 Those who HOPE in the Lord will renew their strength. They will rise up on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will WALK and not grow faint.
