I reached my fundraising goal. If you would like to donate, please consider donating to one of my teammates who has not yet raised the $2300 minimum to walk. Thank you to everyone who has supported me along the way.
Why I walk. This year, I am walking in honor of my sister, Kris, who has been a warrior when it comes to fighting breast cancer, raising funds and awareness, and supporting Komen, local cancer-related charities, her friends, co-workers, and family. Two year's ago, Kris was diagnosed with breast cancer and in addition to being an inspiration, a role model, a mentor, she's now a kick-ass, ninja fighting, survivor! In addition to walking in honor of my little sis, I am walking for my 3-Day roommate Sue. Like my sister, and long before she became a survivor, Sue has walked, and walked, and walked, and fundraising in support of Komen. She's a 3-Day trooper!!
Because of medical research, the death rate for breast cancer in the US alone is more than 30 percent less than it was 20 years ago! A friend is celebrating 15 years of being cancer free thanks to more research and better treatment..
Unfortunately, even with this progress, there are still more than 3.5 million people living with breast cancer, and 41,000 men and women are losing their lives to breast cancer each year. Who do you know who lost their battle?
Komen has a Bold Goal—to reduce the current number of breast cancer deaths by 50% in the U.S. by 2026. They can't accomplish this aggressive goal without events like this, determined (crazy) walkers like me, and supporters like you.
I have been training for the New England 3-Day and recently completed a 15-mile walk with some of my teammates in preparation for this 60-mile event. Despite the hills, 90 degree weather, blisters, and sunburn, training and walking is the easy part. I need your help.
As a participant in the New England 3-Day, I am tasked with raising $2300 to help make Komen's Bold Goal a reality. I'm half-way there (not all funds are shown), but I can't reach my goal without friends, colleagues, and family like you.
Please consider making a donation in honor or in memory of someone you know who is battling breast cancer or lost their life to this disease.
Thank you for your generosity. When you give, lives change.
