THE STORY:

Those of you who know me know that I try to give back often - it just so happens that THIS particular cause hits a lot of buttons for me. I'm trying to raise money for the fight against breast cancer. My mom, my aunt and my grandmother all survived breast cancer. I am SO GRATEFUL that I do not carry the gene, and I am just as grateful that modern medicine is there for me and others should breast cancer rears it's ugly head - and that is largely in part due to fund raisers like this!


Why this one?


* It takes place 10 days before my mom's birthday - And, although she has passed on to the great dancefloor in the sky, I'm doing it in her honor.
* It takes place in Maui - my spiritual home of many loves.
* It is a Stand-Up Paddle (SUP) event - how cool is this?


For me it will be a personaly challenge . . .  I have a big, no HUGE fear of the water, especially the ocean (can you say SHARK) . . .  Plus, as much as I have tried to conquer SUP, I really suck at it. So . . . I have committed to paddling on Lake Travis as much as possible to make the event somewhat less embarrassing. And, speaking of embarrassing, there is the swimsuit issue (and I don't mean "Sports Illustrated") - I have to get this old body ready for the public viewing - ACK!!


Anyway . . . If you can see your way to contributing to the Susan G. Komen organization through my link, I would be so very grateful.


Wish me luck!!
