Hi my friends
Once again I am going to walk the 3-Day, but 2018 will be a little different for me. I will be walking 6 out of the seven walks. Why not all seven you ask? Well that would just be crazy! (Actually, I have a date that weekend at the wedding of a fellow 3-day couple!) The first of the walks will be in Michigan. In total in 2018 I will walk a total of 360 miles on the event and many more in training.
I do this walk every year to honor the memory of the many people who I have lost because of this disease. My mom, Maggi being the most important of these. She died in 2013 when her cancer came back after a 5 year remission and spread to her bones. Friends I have lost include Karen W., Karen B., Leslie, Liz and Biddy. I also walk to support my friends who are still fighting this terrible disease, including Gayle and Cinna, and my friends who are survivors, Karen, Mica and Marcia.
Please support me as I take this 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. 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.
