Breaking News - May 30, 2015 - Our fundraising reached $16,322 which means our 7th of 7 walks is now funded. This is incredible news made possible by your support. For all you are helping, our most grateful thanks. What's next? We are moving forward to raise $20,000 for the year as part of our 3 year goal of raising $60,000 by November 2017, the end of my tenth year walking!
Welcome to my website that provides information on why I walk in the "Susan G. Komen 3-day for the Cure" events. This year, seven walks will be held across the United States to raise funds for research, education and support for those affected by breast cancer.
The 2014 walks, with five completed and two to go, have continued to be life changing events, not only for myself but all who participate in them. The focus and determination to make a difference in the lives of those affected by breast cancer never diminishes as we strive to find a cure and to help those affected by it. To be a part of this special community is truly a privilege and one that I cherish dearly.
For 2015, I have again made the commitment to walk in all seven cities, a significant challenge, but one I'm confident I can meet as I have an amazing group of supporters.From a fundraising perspective, I will require $2300 for each walk I participate in, meaning $16,100 for all seven walks. In today's economy, this can be a difficult matter, but I know that with the amazing supporters that I have and some super fundraisers that are in the plans, we will meet this goal together. I'm excited about the opportunity and the challenge. I hope you will take this journey with me, for you are the ones that make it all possible.On my website, you will find information on:
