This is a wonderful event that raises a lot of money for Breast Cancer Research every year. My mom has walked 3 times, and this is my aunt's 5th walk, and Michelle's second walk.
In my Aunt Donna's own words:
"Please support me as I take my fifth walk for breast cancer and amazing journey in the fight against breast cancer! I am walking with my daughters, Michelle, Stephanie and my nephew, Terry (his mother, my sister is also a breast cancer survivor) our team is called "Strength in Pink". The Breast Cancer 3-Day is a 60-mile walk over the course of three days. Net proceeds benefit Susan G. Komen for the Cure and National Philanthropic Trust, funding important breast cancer research, education, screening, and treatment. I am a 18 year breast cancer survivor and will continue to fight for a cure for all the other women and men in the world. Please help with your donation of $10, $20, or more, it all helps toward my goal of raising $2,200 or more for 2008.
If you can help support them in any way, please consider doing so. They are getting close to their goals, but need an extra push to get all the way there. Just click on one of their names to go to their online donation page.
I am looking into working the volunteer crew at the Atlanta walk in October, as soon as I get more details I will be talking to my new principal about getting the days off to go and help out. Maybe next year I can join the family as a walker (or see if I can go out and walk with my mom if she wants to walk again!)
Thanks to you all for considering helping out.
