Why you may ask? The answer is simple. I WANT TO END BREAST CANCER! Too many people I know have been effected by breast cancer; some are survivors, some are not. Although my dad didn't have breast cancer; he did have malignant melanoma that spread rapidly. He fought hard to fight his cancer but in the end lost his battle. I figure, if Komen can end breast cancer, it's only a matter of time before all cancers will be eliminated.
I got involved about 3 years ago when I joined TEAM STEPS and became a walker-stalker and a tent angel. The following year I decided to become more involved and became an official CREW member working at Pit Stop 4. Last year I also was an official CREW member and once again worked Pit Stop 4. After an emotional closing ceremony this year yet again (2017), I had absolutely no question in my mind that I was in it for the long haul. I have now signed up for 2018 to CREW Pit Stop 4 and possibly walk on Sunday for the last 20 miles of the weekend.
Even as a CREW you are encouraged to fundraise. I did so for the past two years and am hoping to keep it going for 2018; money I collect goes to the same place as walkers! That being said, please support me as I take on 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. I will be doing my part, can you do yours by donating to me?
