Walking because everyone deserves a lifetime.....

A lifetime for themselves, aunts, sisters, grandmothers, cousins, daughters and mothers. Don't forget to check out our personal sites to see why we walk.

We've completed our fundraising, watched the safety video and completed online check in. We even received our tent assignments. The only thing left to do is wait, wait, wait.
Last weekend we walked 10 miles together (minus Caiti). :( It was fun. We walked out to Antelope Island. We saw lots of birds and even buffalo!

San Diego in our sights!
Wow! In less than a week we will be walking in sunny (hopefully) San Diego. We will be among approximately 3,000 others who walk for themselves, a lost loved one, or simply "just because."

There has been a lot of talk lately about the "just because" walkers. These are the walkers who don't know anyone personally who have been affected by breast cancer, but in the basic of terms, they walk because they DON'T want to know anyone.

With San Diego right around the corner, I can hardly contain myself. The 3-Day bug has bitten. 3-Days to be with my family and new friends sharing laughter, tears and of course, showers. :) 3-Days to be alone with my thoughts--and I will do a lot of thinking and a lot of remembering. Remembering my mom. Remembering what a beautiful person she was. Remembering her laugh, her smile and everything about her.

It will be 3-Days of celebration of the life my sister in-law, Debbi has, as well as my two young cousins.

Fundraising Update
Everyone made their minimums to walk. As a we team we raised over $14,000. Holy crap! I don't care who are....that is a lot of money! We could not have raised $1 without you. All that money will go to breast cancer research, screening and treatment. Thank you so much for your support.

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

The numbers are in......

The online auction raised just over $2,000! As first timers we are happy with those results and we are even more excited about the support our auction received! Many bidders were friends and family, but others were not! In fact, several of our supporters were strangers....but not anymore! Thank you to everyone who participated! Even if you were outbid on your favorite item, remember we are all winners 'cause that just means even more money will go to breast cancer screening, research and education.

We still welcome your support. You can always make a donation through one of our personal sites. Feel free to check out our personal sites to find out why we walk.

Our garage sale and auction were fundraising successes, but we won't stop until there is cure. Make a donation today!

For those of you who have been following the madness, we'll also post our "results" as soon as we get everything "tallied."

I can tell already, for first timers, the auction was very successful. Thank you for your support!
