Walking for the Cure for Breast Cancer


February 5, 2017 News - We are very happy to report that our 2017 fundraising has already passed $10,000, putting us on target for raising $20,000 by the end of the summer. Our overall goal is to reach a ten year goal of $150,000 by October 2017, with that total being over $140,000 at this time. Thank you so much for your continued support and helping make these numbers a reality.

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. SGK is second only to the U. S. Government in funds spent on breast cancer research, a demonstration of their commitment to raise funds and provide funds to those that can help find a cure and also help develop better diagnosis techniques and treatments. On numerous occasions, while walking in the events, survivors will tell me of the ways your donations to Komen have helped make their lives better; how it has saved their lives. 

With the completion of the 2016 walks, I finished walking in my 49th event, walking nearly 3000 event miles.  Through generosity over nine years, you have allowed us to raise nearly $139,000! You are amazing in your determination to help make a difference through your contributions, whether in dollars or through your continuous words of encouragement, thoughts and prayers. As we move into 2017, I am registered to walk in San Diego, with other cities being considered. Our focus for 2017 is to meet a goal we committed to in the autumn of 2014.  Our goal is to raise $60,000 in three years, bring our ten year total to $150,000 and to complete my 50th walk.  Thanks to your help, we are within reach of all these goals.  Our three year total, with nearly one to go, is almost $49,000, with the number of walks at 49 and our total at the noted $139,000! We WILL reach our goals because we are confident in your support!

On my website, you will find information on:Thank you again for spending a few minutes reading about why I, and many others, walk to make a difference in the fight against breast cancer. More importantly, I offer my thanks for helping the many people affected by breast cancer, their families and friends and to the many survivors who are a living testimony to the advancements made in breast cancer research.  All of these people are my heroes as they continue to show their courage, optimism and strength as they deal with breast cancer. For these many people, thank you.
