My Komen Blog

Monday, November 08, 2010

My company put together a team for the Susan G. Komen event in Austin this past weekend. Together we raised $815 for the Race for the Cure. this picture is just us before the race.

I have no idea how many were registered, but this was the view behind us at the starting line. People as far as you could see.

running with my wingman, SUSIEWHITE1109, she helps me keep the pace and keep on going. At mile 2 we put on our rally caps and kept on pushing through the small rolling hill course and cranked out our personal best at 37:45.

Love my daughter, Rachael, who at 15 is already making an impact with her life!

Thanks to our hosts and fellow teammates, Kevin and Lisa Cleary for their hospitality and contribution to our team.

I ran in memory of both my grandmothers who lost their battle to cancer. Especially Granny (Mabel Carter) who is an inspiration to me always to be fearless and keep on pushing through no matter what.

You can visit our company website at and see Mabel in our gallery of inspiration.

Thanks Susie for always being there! Next up...The Turkey Trot!

    Hey there......thanks for walking for my grandmother teen memories of watching her disappear from the ravages of this disease still seem like yesterday.

Way to go on raising some serious money! Looks like it was a great day!

    That is a fantastic time good for you and Susie. I'm sure both of your gradmothers were smiling down on you. It is a great inspiration to do a race that has an impact on your lives and raise money to help find a cure once and for all. You lokk great. Good luck and have fun with the Turkey Trot, not sure if there is one here.
