Making the decision to participate in a Komen 3Day begins a journey like no other. The first year is filled with excitement and nervousness. Can I do the miles? Will I be able to keep up? What will it be like walking with a thousand people and sleeping in pink tents? Can I raise the money? I had all these questions, and one by one they were answered. As each year goes by, I know now that my purpose is bigger than the steps I take. It is about the team spirit that is a part of all who walk the 3Day.
I have been a part of team STEPS for a few years now. This group of survivors, co-survivors, and supporters is dedicated to not only the physical walking, but support of the needs of our breast cancer awareness community. Our 3Day family has celebrated the successes of Komen research, held up those diagnosed and in treatment, and mourned those we have lost.
If you ever considered supporting the Komen 3Day, I am asking you to do so now. Any size donation is important. My goal is $2300 to participate.
We walk because we must.
We are strong becasuse the journey demands it.
Together in body and united in spirit, we lay down our footsteps for this generation and the next.
This is our promise: "A world without breast cancer"
