Team Up Up and Away!
I am also walking for my mom’s first cousin Nancy Schaufele who passed away 10/24/12 after battling cancer for the past four years. She was a cancer survivor having lived over 25 years after beating breast cancer in 1986.
The two-day, 39.3-mile walk is something I can do. I can't discover a cure for cancer, as much as I want to, but I can raise money and I can walk. This is such great cause and I am so excited to be able to take part in this great event and help fight for a cure. "Every Woman Deserves A Lifetime!!"
We are walking to bring the world 39 miles closer to a cure for breast cancer. On the first day, the goal is to walk 26.2 miles. After a night’s rest in tents provided for the walkers, the second day’s walk will span 13.1 miles.
It is a big commitment, one that will require me to train and fundraise. Breast cancer is a big disease, one that affects far too many women and men, and I am determined to do everything I can to help put an end to it.
But I do need help, and no amount is too small to matter. My minimum fundraising goal, the amount I need to even be able to participate in the walk, is $1,800. I know times are trying, and I will not be disappointed if you are unable to donate. But please consider donating now, or at any point in the coming months if you are able.
One person is diagnosed with breast cancer every three minutes, and one person dies of it every 14 minutes. We walk to raise awareness and inspire others to do the same. We walk for the survivors, for those we lost, for their families and for our future. We sacrifice one day, two days, three days, weeks, months, years, so that one day, we hope in our lifetimes, we will find a cure. We walk because we can't walk away.
I will walk for EVERYONE with Breast cancer. I will walk with hopes and prayers for a cancer free tomorrow.
I am eager to get started with my fundraising and I need your support!
