W = Walk

I walk in memory of my Aunt Kathleen. I walk to honor those that continue to fight.

walk

I’ve walked hundreds of miles….training.

training

I walk to find a cure.

find cure

I walk 60 miles in 3 days. 

3 days

Training will start next month. This will be my 4th year to participate in the Susan G. Komen 3 Day walk for breast cancer. Between May and November I will walk hundreds of miles with my teammates and friends. We will laugh, cry, doctor blisters, stretch sore muscles and buy new shoes. We each walk for a different reason. Some of us are survivors, some of us walk in memory of loved ones, some of us walk to honor people fighting breast cancer….all of us walk to raise money for a cure.

2 feet

It only takes 2 feet and the willingness to walk. When my 2 feet join thousands of other feet…we walk and we make a difference!

The A – Z Challenge will run through April. Each day is a different letter and a different photo…I hope you all enjoy!

    Twenty miles a day for 3 consecutive days is such a major achievement and I appreciate the training, emotion, and personal discovery that goes into it. That this is your 4th year speaks for itself. ❤

      Typically we walk year around….but I’ve really gotten into biking so I need to get refocused on walking. Its amazing the beating one’s legs and feet take…must get them prepared!
      Thanks for the congrats! and yes fund raising year around! We are required to raise $2300.00 🙂

    Good luck with the walk, Tree. My sister-in-law is currently battling breast cancer. She is a fair bit older than us and so she is more like my mother-in-law. Thought it was small initially but biopsy showed it was a level two and she’s needed radiation and chemo. Hair has started falling out and she’s getting it off next week. Such a gruelling journey xx Rowena

      So sorry to hear about your sister-in-law. It is grueling. But fortunately much more survivable than it was in the past.
      Hugs to all of you…and please let your sister-in-law know we are walking for her!
      If you share her name with me (just first name) I will share it with my fellow walkers and we will have her on our list of people we are walking for.

        Her name is Vivi. Thanks so much for that Tree. I am very conscious that even though her prognosis is good, that she’s on a pretty rough road and not a road of choice. Thank you so much for marching and including her xx Rowena
