Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure - $1.00 Challenge!


There is something that I want to share with you today that is so close to my heart. My daughter Katherine is walking this year in the Susan G. Komen  3-Day Walk for Breast Cancer in August. This is her 2nd year walking, she walked for the first time in 2009 and did a tremendous job. I am very proud of her. She walking this year as previous  in memory of her Grandmother, my mother who she never met because she was a victim of this horrible disease. I am so incredible proud of her, but we need your help.

The Susan G. Komen 3-Day® is a 60-mile walk over the course of three days. Net proceeds help support research, scientific programs and community-based breast health and education programs for women and men facing breast cancer.

My daughter is wonderful. With her busy schedule to take on this commitment I know is extremely rewarding for her., She is a strong, independent talented woman who went from graduating with honors, putting herself through school becoming a teacher then returning to get her Masters in Instructional Design. As many of you may know this 3-day walk  is an incredible challenge that requires a tremendous amount of training and preparation. I want to see this happen for her, I know her Grandmother would be touched at her determination to complete this mission again in her honor. 

In order to participate in the walk you have to raise $2,300, she just reached her 10% goal. I am determined to see her double her goal, by the time August comes.



So, I am challenging each one of our readers, to  please consider donating just $1.00. Certainly any larger donations would be welcome. Take a moment to share this post and follow the link to donate. We all know someone who has been effected by this disease.

Take the Challenge and Donate---->
