I had registered to do the 3 day last year and was not able to do so because I had an issue with my foot. I reached my goal of fund raising and everything! What a disappointment! I refuse to give up! Cancer is very near and dear to me. I lost my father to Colon Cancer 2 years ago and it was one of the worst things I ever experienced.
When my Dad was in the hospital a friend had given him this book called Crazy Sexy Cancer. He was grumpy and refused to read it because it was about breast cancer and plus he didnt want to face the reality of what was going on. Sooooo since I had the opportunity to spend so much time in the room with him I read it. I learned so much about wonderful programs to help people like him that were sitting there alone and needed someone to just push him through it. Through this book I learned of Chemo angels, its a free program just to be someone Bud and tell them to keep their head up: www.chemoangels.net
My passion began to grow through this....I was the angel to two people who faced Breast Cancer, one with Colon Cancer, and one with skin cancer. All different ages, sexes, and lifestyles. It opened my eyes...what ever I could do to make a difference I wanted to do it, and I want to let them know they are not Alone!
Soooo I signed up to do the 3 Day, a commitment of raising $2300 and walking 60 miles. 20 miles each day and a celebration of life! I am so there! Something to get healthy about and make a difference! Count me in! Soooo now Im posting this to see who is with me? I have registered to do the 3 day walk in Arizona in November but think I may change it to San Diego. Soooo Who is with me??
If you are interested in learning more about the 3 Day its www.the3day.org
Its really cool, its all over the US at different times, its a true 3 day celebration!
I built this team if anyone wants to track walking.
