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 2018 walks, I finished walking in my 63rd event, walking 3780 event miles. Through your generosity over eleven years, you have allowed us to raise nearly $180,000! 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 2019, I am again registered to walk in all seven cities. Our 2019 focus is to again raised $20,000, even though only $16,100 is required to walk in all seven cities.
