After hearing Donna Deegan speak I was ready to sign up to run with Donna to support the Breast Cancer Finish ... never suspecting that only 10 weeks later I would be in my own breast cancer race.
Now on the other side of surgery and radiation ... a challenge too many women know first hand ... I'm keeping that promise to run with Donna.
Pre-diagnosis I had already committed to running two favorite half-marathons: 2017 Mohawk-Hudson in October and 2017 Galloway 13.1 in December. Who says this 67-year-old can't add another in February 2018?
To remain motivated, I'll be donating 50 cents for every mile I run/walk ... about $10 a week ... to The DONNA Foundation's work to fund research and support those living with breast cancer. Since exercise is one of the best ways to keep breast cancer away, I'll also be working to keep myself cancer-free.
Would love it if you would consider joining me in supporting The DONNA Foundation's work. Together we can #BeTheFinish!
