BENEFITING: Susan G. Komen
EVENT DATE: Sep 24, 2011
Our connection with the cause:
This coming September, my mom and I will be participating in the Wichita chapter of the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Race for the Cure. For those of you who don't know, Mom was diagnosed with breast cancer in Fall of 2009, and, after a series of surgeries and treatments, eradicated the tumors in her breast and adjacent lymph nodes. However, Spring of this year yielded the diagnoses of another tumor, this time located in her lower back. Thanks to a new experimental type of chemo, this round of treatments has been significantly less invasive, and Mom has decided that she is strong enough to walk for this very worthy cause.
How we'll participate:
I, having a hopelessly poor level of endurance matched with a tenacious desire to push my limits, have decided to take on the 5k competitive run. (And now that you know the pittance of a distance I'm talking about, you also know that I'm also an incurable drama queen). After the 5k, I will join Mom and some other friends, and we will do the one-mile walk.
Thank you so much for your interest and support in this cause! You should know that if you don't at least think about donating, there is no possible way we can remain friends. Smiles!
Don't forget! Donate $28 to be entered to win an iPad 2 or $12 to be entered to win two Marmot Driclime Windshirts.
