Believe. This word was my mothers life. She believed in family, love, devotion to God, and to one another. She thanked Him every day for giving her the power to believe in one another...no matter what was passed our way. She felt that if we truly believe in something or someone, the word, "Believe" became even more powerful. I know I can't change the world on my own, or find a cure for cancer. I believe, however, that I can be a small part of something REALLY big. So, on Mothers Day, Sunday, May 11th 2014, my family and I are going to take a walk. We're walking in memory of my momacita, and we'd love for you to join us.
You can find us at Genesee Valley Park for the 13th Annual Pink Ribbon Run & Walk. The race and walk routes provide scenic views of the Genesee River, Erie Canal and U of R Campus.
The Pink Ribbon Run is a women only 5K road race for women of all ages. The Family Fitness Walk is open to all men, women and children, walkers, strollers, joggers, and fitness enthusiasts. The walk route includes 2.3 and 3.6 mile options.
Pre-registration fee is $20 per person, $30 day of event. Fees are waived for individuals raising $50 or more in pledges!
BCCR is an organization dedicated to informing and empowering men and women with breast cancer, whether they have been recently diagnosed or have been living with the disease for years.

If you can't join us on Mothers Day, please consider donating to our fundraiser!
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me. Once we have additional members on our team, I will be in touch with details in preparation of the day!
