During the last weekend in September, the Fugawi Tribe will again lace up our sneakers, walk among thousands of men and women, and sleep in a two person tent regardless of the weather, all to help get one step closer to the end of breast cancer.
In 2007 we began our journey, fighting against breast cancer, each with our own reason for walking. We were motivated and inspired throughout the journey, having met so many great friends, sharing and listening to so many stories along the way.
In 2013 we were three. In 2014 we expanded our team to include the family of veteran team members and past walkers. In 2015 the team was comprised of both walkers and crew members and in 2016 were three. Last year, in 2017 the Fugawi Tribe recruited new members who will be joining the adventure again in 2018.
Regardless of how many make up the Fugawi Tribe we are only a few amongst many others; all with the same mission - to end breast cancer. We all walk to find a cure, to raise money helping those who can't afford mammograms, to make sure future generations don't have the same fight; all the while you exchange stories of survivors or angles. It is a rollercoaster of emotion and we love it.
Each year our resolve in the fight against breast cancer remains strong. We walk because we can, we walk because we want our children to know a world without breast cancer, we will walk until pink is just a color, we will walk until ribbons are just something to wear in your hair. We walk because EVERYONE deserves a lifetime. We can talk the talk, BUT we can't walk the walk without generous donations; no amount is too little or too small - donate from your heart to a cause that effects too many!
