Susan G. Komen 3-Day Walking Team
I really hate it when my toenails fall off. I abhor the time that it takes for quarter-sized blisters to
heal. I can’t stand sore muscles and the feeling of stiffness when I have to roll out of bed. I even
find that being up for hours before the sun even rises in the morning to be intolerable…
but i love my mother...
and what I hate even more than all of those things is watching her fight for her life. Eleven years
ago, I did just that, which is why I will go through all of it for the fourth time this October when I walk
60 miles in three days for the fight against breast cancer.
I will gladly suffer all of those “symptoms” if it means that I can contribute to the possibility that
there will be a future without cancer.
What would you do?
Would you donate $10? How about $50 or $100? Would you buy jewelry, attend an event, or find
a sponsor, all knowing that you are helping?
This year, I will give you the opportunity to do all of those. Over the coming months, I will host
events, send letters, and generally work my bum off to raise the $2300 to participate in this
fundraising walk. In return, I am asking for your help.
I get it, everyone has a cause, and you have likely been approached by many organizations so
far, this year alone. If you can’t give yourself, what I ask is for you to send this to 10 of your own
friends. One in eight women will get breast cancer, which means you probably know several
people that are touched by it in a life-changing way.
In fact, over $1500, half of my fundraising, in previous years was made up of large donations
from strangers because they were close to the cause. If together we get 23 people to help raise
just $100 each, the goal will be reached easily! Will you be one of them?
Do it for your mother.
Do it for yourself.
Or at least...do it for my toenails.
