As many of you know I am a huge advocate for breast cancer research and fundraising. Every year I participate in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure, and in 2005 I also walked in the 3 Day with my family and friends to help raise money and awareness. I think I’m ready for another one of those, so, look out for a fundraising email from me(;
This year I was invited to participate on a team for the Florida Suncoast Race for the Cure in St. Pete and I invited along my family again. My mom has stage IV breast cancer. She has been a survivor since 1989. We walk for her, we also walk for my daughter, that she never has to know what this disease is. My mom started a new chemo treatment last month and received her second round on Thursday, so, she couldn’t make the walk, but I had my dad, my hubby and my daughter.
It was a gorgeous morning. Our friends Kristin and Julia ran in the 5k, but the rest of us enjoyed the sunrise and the cool weather as we supported my mom.
Thanks to all my friends and family that donated.
Jimmy and Cate before the walk. My dad was hiding behind them being silly.
Team, The Cause that Counts! Most of our team were sleepy heads and didn’t make the actual race, but their donations were appreciated!
Me and my baby girl…not sure what she is doing with her face. We were all a little punchy being up since 5.
On Cate’s race i.d. we wrote: Walking for my Grandma!
