60- miles down- A great weekend and memories

Thank you!

I would like to thank everyone who has supported me through these 5 3-day walks. (2004 – Michigan, Tampa – 2005, 2011, 2012, 2013)

Through your support, love, donations, and prayers I have been able to walk 300 miles (plus all the training miles), and raise over $12,000 for breast cancer research and programs to help those who cannot afford treatments or diagnostic testing.

If we add in the others on my teams over the years, KC, Julie, & Kara we are up to 540 miles and over $21,000.

If we then break that down, $5,250 toward diagnostics and treatments and $15,750 toward research and a cure.

I am thankful that Susan G Komen has added programs that include teaching Prevention and how what we eat and surround ourselves with can make a difference and help to prevent this horrible disease.

1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer, it is the top Cancer killer in women.  When we find the cure for this biggie, the hope is that cures for others will be close behind.

Women, in their 20’s are now being diagnosed in stage 4 breast cancer, more and more often. 

2% of all breast cancer patients are men.

Let’s kick cancer’s butt!  Eat better and live a higher quality of life.

Here are a few snap shots of the weekend!

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
