Picture from 2008 the first year I finished all 60 Miles. I still walk with four of the Women in the Photo.
Back in 2007 I registered for my very first 3-Day not having any idea what it was going to be like. I had seen a commercial on TV for this event and my Mother was a Survivor and I decided that I was going to try to walk 60 Miles to support others that had faced the same fight that she had. I was fortunate that my mother was a Survivor but there are so many that face Breast Cancer and so many other types of Cancer that do not have that positive outcome. This year will mark my tenth Komen 3-Day event. My team has gotten much smaller than when I first started but there are those that I walk with that are so very committed to seeing an end to Breast Cancer. When I first started walking the 3-Day I started a list to remember those that had fought or were fighting Breast Cancer. I have since expanded that list to all types of Cancer and the list continues to grow. Please help us to find a Cure for Breast Cancer. I sincerely believe that if we can find a cure for one type of Cancer we are that much closer to finding a cure for all types. Please consider making a donation today. Also if you have someone that you know that has or is fighting Cancer that would would like me to remember during the 3-Day please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will add them to my list.
