So, I did a REALLY BIG THING! I’ve registered for not one, not two, but THREE 3-Day events for 2023!
Boston, MA: I will be participating on the 3-Day Crew Team in Boston August 18-20. This a new thing for me, as I’ve only participated as a walker in the past. I have often said, ever since my first 3-Day event as a walker in 2005, that we absolutely COULD NOT walk 60 miles over a three day span without the help of the 3-Day Crew Team! I’m about to find out how hard that job is! I’ll be serving up lunch, filling Gatorade and water bottles, giving directions, refilling TP in the porta-potties, and any other thing that needs doing to support our walkers!
Denver, CO: Just one week following my stint in Boston, I’ll be lacing up my shoes to walk in Denver! This event begins August 25-27. I will walk 20 miles on the third and final day of the event. Whoop!
San Diego, CA: This November 17-19 will be my nineteenth 3-Day event in San Diego (twenty- one if you count Boston and Denver). San Diego is the cherry on top, as the city hosts the final 3-Day event of five cities. And, as in years past, I celebrate ANOTHER BIRTHDAY in San Diego! Whoop!
I continue to participate in these events in the hope that one day there will no longer be a need, because Breast Cancer will be DEFEATED! This is my dream and my goal. In 1980, the 5-year relative survival rate for women diagnosed with early-stage breast cancer was about 74 percent. Today, that number is 98-100 percent! We are making progress, and we will not give up until we reach our goal of ending breast cancer forever. So, once again I will lace up my shoes, pack up my optimism, put a smile on my face and do my small part to help bring cancer to its knees.
Peace and Love!
