What started as a personal challenge - walking 60 miles in 3 days - has turned into much more. Joining the Susan G. Komen community only a few weeks ago has already been life changing. The people that I have met have made me see how important this journey is - its a journey to END 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. The hope, commitment, and energy to this fight is contagious among the participants and I hope people see this commitment in me as well.
I have been fortunate enough not to experience this terrible disease firsthand in my family. However, I have friends who were taken from their families by it way too early. And I know some who are currently in the fight of their lives because of it. I will do what I can to honor those who have lost the battle and give HOPE to those who are still fighting.
Please support me as I take on an incredible challenge to make an impact in the fight to end breast cancer.
