Hi Laurie,

I was not there this year, but am glad you could make it. It is a wonderful event, and I thank BUGSMIMI for introducing me to it!

Breast of Friends ladies....I saw your group there. I was there with some co-workers and I saw DH's cousin, the one I walk for. Apparently, DH's sister and her DD were there as well, but I didn't see them. Too many people.

It was a beautiful day and perfect for walking.

Laurie

Her team members have all raised their monies. Some of the local restaurants have let them do fund raisers and gave them 10% of the sales for the night. They've run to "Naughty Bingo" games which were a riot. Everyone wants them to do another we've had so much fun. Plus they have folks that are giving donations. It's been a lot of hard work. I just hope they have good weather for the walk since they do it rain or shine.

They walk 20 miles a day. By the time they are done, they are exhausted and have plenty of blisters to show for all their hard work. Each walker has to raise $2,300 before they can walk so it brings in a good amount since there are so many walking. They actually sleep in tents at night. I give her a lot of credit for doing it.

How many miles (kilometers?) is the three day event?

Ours is only 5K and I could do more if they made it longer!

Thanks, Sandy!!

Just got back from having supper with Pat and Fred - they can't walk with the team this year, but were kind enough to come to Belfast to drop off a donation and have a nice visit. So sweet!!

Just a reminder - the Komen walk is in Bangor this Sunday. I'll be there with three or four of my friends (non-sparkers.....) - you'll see us wearing our "Breast of Friends" T-shirts. Looking forward to the walk!
