I am walking this year in the 2010 Susan G Komen Race for the Cure in the Pugget Sound.
I am walking as part of a three piece group the Lets Play Mamas. Walking with my good friends Kara & Mindy but among thousands of people for this cause.
We all Walk for our Mothers, Grandmothers, Aunts, Sister, Cousins and Friends!!
Several years ago I walked this with my Sister and it was so inspiring. I felt a great deal of humility that I was fortunate to be healthy. I want to remain this way. But for the people who have been effected by Breast Cancer this event is a whole different story.
This year I set a Group Goal of $300.00 that would = 2 mammogram and hopefully save someone’s life. In the beginning I was worried if I could raise $60. But I set a personal goal of also $300.00. Well as a group we’ve so far to today’s date raised $775.00!! I personally have raised $400.00!!!
I myself am also walking for strangers to me in the one great meaning -Remembrance.
I was inspired by a Mom whom I’ve never met in person but who joined me in this cause. Thank you Lisa. So because of this I am collecting names. Names of Women who have been affected by Cancer.
The Honor is all mine to walk across the finish line with the names of these brave women.
Some who didn’t get to the finish line or the Ladies who are at the beginning of their journey and also the Women who persevered through and beat it!
So far I have gathered these names that I am proudly writing on my shirt:
- Johanna " Honey" Stout
- Donna Fleck
- Marjorie Covey
- Meg Buttler
- Courtney Young Winderweedle
- Betty Aho
- Anne Marie Bodoria
- Aggie Sansone
- Lynn Brown
- Adie Duplantis
- Monique Chavez
- Winifred Parkes
- Ellie Nist
- Norma Masterson
- Marge Cassou
- Irene Duckett
- Hazel Barene
- Vi Fietz
Please there is still time. If you have someone you love and want named… Name them.
Contact me I would be happy to take them with me!
And it never too late to Donate to this cause, every penny counts and could make a difference!
Lets Honor them in their Fight!
