On Aug, 6-8th myself along with a small team consisting of my 16yr. old daughter, daughter-in-law and 2 close friends will be walking 60 miles over the course of three days, camping out at night with thousands of other women and men taking this journey with me.
Our team name is Pretty in Pink 5G
It's for an event called the Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure™. Net proceeds from the Komen 3-Day for the Cure are invested in community-based breast health programs and breast cancer research. The research funded focuses on decreasing breast cancer incidence and mortality in the next decade. Susan G. Komen for the Cure® works hard to build a future without breast cancer, and we plan on raising $12,500 as a team ($2,500 per walker) to help bring us closer to that goal.
I personally lost my mother to breast cancer in 2003. I watched her fight the battle that has claimed so many women, mothers, grandmothers, aunts, sisters, daughters, friends. Though she fought hard, the breast cancer took mom from us much too soon, at the young age of 54. We will walk to fight back for her and for all of the others whom have and will face this horrible battle called breast cancer either personally or with a loved one.
Please consider making a donation of $100 or as much as you can do. Even if you can't give this amount all at once, you can spread it out over four months, using the payment plan option, if you donate online at The3Day.org. Please also ask your employer if they will double your donation with a matching gift.
o Breast Cancer is the most frequently diagnosed cancer and the leading cause of death among women worldwide. A woman dies from breast cancer every 68 seconds. More than 465,000 die from the disease each year. We need your help. Because everyone deserves a lifetime.
