Hello Friends & Family,
I know I'm crazy, but I'm walking again! I can't help it, there is still no cure for breast cancer. This is my 8th year and I am very proud of the money I have raised, but I can't stop there. Two hundred thousand women and men in the United States will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year. Forty thousand will not survive. One in eight women will be diagnosed with cancer in their life time. Your donation can help find a cure. Your donation could help a loved one survive.
I have committed to walk 60 miles in three days to support the fight against breast cancer. I am so sick of cancer. I can't stand the thought of hearing that another friend or relative has cancer. As I train and walk each year, I pray that all those we know and love never hear those horrible words "you have breast cancer." If we find a cure to breast cancer, the others cannot be far behind. This walk is for my children, my mom, my sisters, my nieces, sisters-in law, aunts, cousins, friends and co-workers. Because I love you all, I have chosen to do my part.
The walk will be very challenging for me this year, as I am not getting any younger and feel the aches of training more each year. As most of you already know, I have to raise $2,300 each year and I do so in memory of my Grandma Darwin who lost her battle to this terrible disease. However, I also fundraise and make personal donations to this very important cause in celebration of so many fighters and survivors that I am blessed to have in my life. Each of these individuals are great reminders that what I am doing is making a difference. My team and I raise money and walk for all cancers because everyone deserves a lifetime. Please donate if you can, and if you can't, that's okay just keep me in your thoughts and prayers. I'll be thinking of you every step of the way, as I train over the next few months and when I walk in San Diego in November. Also, don't forget to schedule your mammogram today!
For every $5 donation received between now and August 23rd, you will earn a raffle ticket to enter for a chance to win a BRAND NEW 2018 GMC Sierra 1500 from Valley Buick GMC!
Thanks again for your support, there are not enough words to express my gratitude.
