Breast Cancer

Thursday, January 31, 2013

I'm taking the plunge! I've signed up to participate in the Susan G. Komen 3-Day, 60 Mile Breast Cancer Walk!

I sent out my first fundraising letter yesterday morning and so far i've raised $370 and i have $150 in pledges. I've raised just over 22%!!!!!!!!!!!!

Fundraising is the hardest part for me. I've ALWAYS hated asking any one for money - regardless of the cause. But i'm confident that the funds will be raised.

Me and my friends supporting the 3-Day walkers last year. We passed out bottles of water, collected trash and cheered them on!

My friends and i at the Dallas Race for the Cure this past October.

I'm super excited about completing all 60 miles!!!!

If you want to help support me - just ask!
