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.
