The Twinkle Toes are back at it in 2014 and hope to break our fundraising goals once again...

I can't believe I survived my first Komen 3-Day...and before I even laced up my shoes in San Diego, I was already on board for Dallas in 2014!

When I started this journey, I knew it would be challenging, I knew it would be costly (shoes, airline tickets, gear, hotel, the list goes on and on), and I knew it would be time consuming (my average walks are 2 - 3 hours)...but I knew in my heart this was something I needed/wanted to do. I had no idea how I was going to raise the required funds to walk or how I was going to afford the needed gear and travel...but with the love and support of my family and friends, my goals have become obtainable. You are all incredible...and so very special...and I thank you....and now, here I am at it again...asking you to support me on my 2014 journey...

Breast cancer is the most frequently diagnosed cancer and is the leading cause of cancer death among women worldwide. I am walking for those who are currently fighting, I am walking in memory of those who have lost their life to the disease, and I am walking to celebrate the lives of the millions of survivors - it is that easy - I walk because I can....and I will keep walking until we eradicate this destructive disease.

I am walking in remembrance of friends, like Cathey (AKA "Pumpkin")...and in remembrance of family members of friends, like Golda Paton (mother of my very dear friend Lorrie)...and I am walking with Lois, our team captain - she is a best friend, a mentor, an inspiration, and has truly touched my life; my days would not be the same without her friendship, advice, and comfort. She is a seventeen year breast cancer survivor and I am truly thankful every single day that she did not succumb to this dreadful disease. I am honored to walk with/for Lois...and for so many other women and men who are bravely fighting/have bravely fought or watched a loved one battle breast cancer. 

The facts:
To participate in the 60-mile 3-Day walk, a participant must raise a minimum of $2,300 - as you can see, I have set my personal goal quite a bit higher at a lofty $8,750 dollars...and I know that may seem a bit outrageous, but it does seem obtainable...it's an average of $145 pr mile...and $750 more than my goal last year...and I truly intend to surpass my goal again this year! I hope you will consider making a donation - no matter how big or small, you will make a difference. Seventy-five percent of the net proceeds raised by the Komen 3-Day help fund national research and large public health outreach programs. The remaining 25 percent will help fund local community and affiliate support and outreach programs.

Please join me by making a donation - I am extremely thankful for your support - together we can fight this disease and find a cure...  

...and so it continues...my training is ongoing...I'll keep you updated on my progress...
I'm ready (once again) for this incredible journey!
