December 16, 2016 News - We are so blessed, having just completed another successful 3-Day season by participating in all seven cities. With registration opening in August and our 2016 fundraising goals met, we immediately began fundraising for our 2017 walks. To date, nearly $7500 has been raised!
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:
