60 miles in less than one month
I realized today as I was out for a walk that one month from today, I’ll get up bright and early, make my way to OCC in Farmington Hills, join my mom, mother-in-law, sister-in-law, aunt and closes friends in the journey of a lifetime. 25 of us will walk 60 miles over the course of 3 days in the breast cancer 3-day. For months, I’ve been fundraising, training, recruiting team members and looking forward to the walk. Now, I am less than 1 month away. Last Saturday, I put on my shoes, my camelbak, grabbed some cash and a cell phone and headed out for a 5 1/2 walk. It felt good–actually great. I just kept walking and walking. I know the 60 miles will be tough but I’ve travelled a tougher road, and I feel stronger than ever. Ta Ta Breast Cancer is less than $10,000 way from raising $75,000 and I’m certain we will reach our goal. I never in my wildest dreams imagined the amount of people that would join me in this adventure and work so hard training and fundraising to support this great cause. I am grateful, thankful and so happy to have this team of people walking with me. It is not only the total dollars raised but the amount of donations made to me and my teammates throughout the course of our fundraising–745 individual donation to our team. Not to mention all the people who’ve supported our fundraisers. Unbelievable! All I can say is thank you. Ta Ta Breast Cancer will be a strong force in 08 and back in 09. We will keep walking until there is no longer a reason to walk.
