On October 22nd, my self, my mom and my sister will be among the hundreds of people participating in the Sarasota/Bradenton Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk. This walk is a non-competitive 5K fundraising walk. I am walking for several reasons and the first and foremost is my mom.
Today is actually the 5th anniversary of my mom being cancer free! Yes, my mom is a breast cancer survivor and she now volunteers her time for the American Cancer Society’s Road to Recovery and Look Good…Feel Better programs. I am proud of my mom, how she walked through her cancer with a positive attitude and how she now gives back to others who are suffering with all types of cancers.
Part of the fun of the walk is that we are encouraged to wear a decorated pink bra on the outside of your clothing during the walk. Yesterday, we got crafty and decorated our bras for the walk.
You’ll have to wait for my post on the actual walk to see us wearing our creations 🙂
In all seriousness though, this is a fundraising walk and I am really counting on you, my readers, to help support me in my effort. From now until the walk, the Making Strides badge will be at the top of my page for you to click on to donate. You can also click here. No donation is too small. I have set a modest goal-since we are starting kind of late, I’d like to raise at least $250.00. Together we CAN do this! Thank you for your help and support.
Please leave a comment and let me know you donated!
