Susan G. Komen 3-Day
Susan G. Komen 3-Day

Please support me as I take an amazing journey in the fight to end breast cancer! The Susan G. Komen 3-Day? is a 60-mile walk over the course of three days. 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 helps fund local community and Affiliate support and outreach programs.

You may be wondering why I am walking 60 miles and raising a minimum of $2300 in donations. I am determined to meet this personal challenge because of a very special person. In 2005, my grandmother went in for a routine mammogram. 2 months later, she was doing a self exam and noticed a lump. After making an appointment to see her doctor and having a biopsy done, it was determined that she did indeed have breast cancer. In 2 months, she went from being cancer free to being diagnosed with Stage 3 breast cancer. It was the most terrifying thing that our family has ever had to go through, and I don?t wish this heartache, unknowing and stress on anyone. Luckily she fought it and beat her cancer and now, in 2013, 8 years later, she is still cancer free. This cause is very important to me, and with my determination and your support, I know that I can do this!

Training- Week of 3/17- 3/23
I have really started training for this walk this week. I am more determined then ever to not only get in shape (and possibly lose those extra 10 pounds I still have not be able to lose as part of my last 10 of 50 pounds lost!) but to fund raise and get donations for my walk. I think that I would be crushed if I trained this hard and it was all for nothing cause I couldn't walk it.
I have been reaching out not only locally to businesses in my area and places that I frequent, but I have been approached for fundraising ideas where people will donate a certain amount of sales for products sold. It really warms my heart that people want to see me succeed!!
This week isn't completely over yet, but already I have logged a total of 20.86 miles!! I am trying to walk at least 5 miles a day if not more! This walk really means a lot to me! I hope you will help support me and my goal! :) Thank you for all the support!
