BENEFITING: TRIPLE NEGATIVE BREAST CANCERFOUNDATION INC
EVENT DATE: Nov 08, 2014
I am running for Triple Negative Breast Cancer Foundation.
I am running the Savannah Rock 'n' Roll Half Marathon Race on November 8, 2014, for Triple Negative Breast Cancer Foundation. It feels great crossing that finish line, knowing all the time, energy and discipline it took to get there, but to cross it, with reasons tied to something bigger than self, is the most rewarding. I knew immediately the person tied to a cause I wanted to run the Savannah Rock 'n' Roll Half Marathon Race 2014 for - her name is Bonnie Schut. Bonnie or "Booh," was so instrumental in my young life, being a mentor, and being responsible for creating and giving me my career. A few years ago, Bonnie battled and survived breast cancer. Upon surviving, in her true to nature generous spirit and heart, she is now an advocate to countless women who are battling and surviving breast cancer. Another dearest friend, Toni, was diagnosed a couple years ago with breast cancer and I called Bonnie to see if she could talk to my friend and offer any advice or support. Bonnie not only called her, but became a huge team member in advice and support for my friend Toni as she has been battling her breast cancer. I am so taken with Bonnie's selflessness! Bonnie had only met Toni breifly and it was decades ago, and yet with one phone call, she immediately was there to give in any way she could, as if they were life long friends. It is just who Bonnie is and forever will be.
When I emailed Bonnie to let her know I am running this race and what I had on my mind, she immediately responded with such beautiful gratitude and forwarded me the name of the charity I could run for with her in my heart - Triple Negative Breast Cancer Foundation.
I thank you in advance for your support and generosity as I run for Bonnie, and all women who battle breast cancer, and Triple Negative Breast Cancer Foundation.
Peace, Love and Health!
