Drum Roll Please!

Dear Friends and Family~
I have taken on an incredible challenge. In September, I'll be walking 60 miles over the course of three days, camping out at night with my best friend and "Sole Sister", Kendra along with thousands of other women and men taking this journey with me.

It's for an event called the Breast Cancer 3-Day, which benefits Susan G. Komen for the Cure and the National Philanthropic Trust Breast Cancer Fund. Every advancement in breast cancer research, treatment, education and prevention in the last 25 years has been touched by a Komen for the Cure grant. They are working hard to build a future without breast cancer, and I plan on raising $5000 to help bring us closer to that goal.

Please consider making a donation of $50. If you can't give this amount all at once, you can spread it out over four months, using the payment plan option, if you donate online at Please also ask your employer if they will double your donation with a matching gift. Or, if $50 is not in your budget.. please consider $10, $20... Heck.. $5!! Every dollar will move us closer to a cure!
If you own a business, please consider contributing, it is an excellent tax write-off to a very worthy cause.

This is one of the biggest things I have ever attempted. I am doing this to support those that have supported me in a "pay it forward" kind of way! I have many blessings and I really felt like it was time to use my energy, my resources, my contacts, and my time to do something for others.. in support of others. I am participating in this walk to show my support in finding a cure.

Without a cure, one in eight women in the U.S. will continue to be diagnosed with breast cancer. Think of how many women you know. Breast cancer effects your daughters, mothers, sisters, wives, best friends, co-workers and even some men! That's why I'm walking in the 3-Day. Because everyone deserves a lifetime.

Just follow the link below to visit my personal fundraising webpage and make a donation. If you don't want to donate online, please download and print a donation form and mail it to the address on the form. Or you can call 800.996.3DAY to donate over the phone. I would like to reach my fundraising goal by August 15th, so don't delay! (I set an early date so I can focus on training to walk my 60 miles!)

Thank you for taking the time to read this email, and thank you for your support. Thank you for being there through good and bad. I am doing this for those that have been supportive of me and for those of you have ever had kindness in your heart towards me. I am walking this for you.

Love and Hope,


PLEASE VISIT MY TEAMMATE'S Page. If you are thinking of donating, I encourage you to split your donation to the two of us. You can find my beautiful sister's donation site by clicking HERE
