BENEFITING: BREAST CANCER COALITION OF ROCHESTER INC
EVENT DATE: May 11, 2014
I'm looking forward to participating in my first 5k, even though I'll be walking it! This is a cause that means so much to me and I'm looking forward to celebrating and remembering the beautiful women that are effected by breast cancer. I will be walking in memory of two very beautiful and angels that I miss dearly.
I met Laurie Thiboutot the summer before my senior year in high school, she took my senior pictures for me. What I remember most about Laurie was her smile and her kindness. I was lucky enough to participate in the annual Laurie's Ride Charity Motorcycle Ride for Breast Cancer with my grandfather Artie Atkinson as a road guard.
I met Laura Cashman-Aussant just after my freshman year of college, she was a close friend of my mom's and we spent the day at the beach together. What I remember most about Laura was her laughter, and her sassy charm. I can't go to the beach or wear flip-flops without missing her and her hugs.
This Sunday I'll be walking in their memory, celebrating their lives, and raising money for a great cause. Your support, of any amount, will be greatly appreciated.
