I am so thrilled to announce that I actually have team MEMBERS for my next breast cancer event!!!
Being a team of one for the 3-Day was fine, once I met up with other teams of one, we buddied together. But it's easier to make friends when you're walking 20 miles a day for three days.
But, thanks to my boyfriend and his family and friends, who I told about the team a couple of weeks ago, there are now six of us participating For Carol's Joy. I am most excited that Kevin's mom, the one and only Carol Joy, is getting to participate with us!
So far we have raised $160 towards our goal of $500. The Race is in 8 days and I've got a good feeling. My training is going fairly well, but my determination is what matters most. I WILL run the entire 5k and we WILL find a cure. I PROMISE!!!
When my boyfriend told me his mother has breast cancer, I began a long search for a way to help. When I read about the Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure, I knew I had to do it.
After months of fundraising, I raised more than $2300 and walked 60 miles in the Chicago 3-Day!
Now, I'm learning to be a runner and just finished my first 5k!
All in all, I am participating in 100 miles of events in order to raise $5000 to find a cure. I've walked 60 miles, run a 5k (3.1 miles), have a half marathon planned for February (13.1 miles) and will end by running a marathon for the cure in April!
