I’m not a huge fan of pink but last year in July I was around 3 days of full-blown PINK. I registered for the Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure. It is a 60-mile walk over the course of 3 days and I decided to walk in Boston, MA, one of many cities to choose from.
Words can’t describe the unforgettable experience I had that summer as well as the previous year when I volunteered.
*I volunteered with two girlfriends who one of them lost their mom to breast cancer*
You meet many people and share laughter and tears, unforgettable stories, both men and women who leave an imprint of what they have gone through.
There are so many little ways to make a difference, to change a person’s life, a friend’s life, or even a complete stranger’s life. The power that one can do with the decisions and choices they make is truly a gift.
*Cute signs along the way. There were a bunch of different pit stops and they each had a theme of some sort*
*Closing ceremony. Very moving and emotional and definitely a great feeling*
I thought 60 miles was crazy but then when I saw the survivors walking 60 miles along with everything else they have been through, I knew I could do this. I knew those 60 miles and the yearlong fundraising I did would totally be worth it.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and I know the 3-Day is something that someone has to put time into but it’s great how there are so many other things a person can do to be one step closer to finding a cure.
So many companies promote their products and donate those proceeds for research. Keep your eyes peeled and let us know what you do to make a difference. 🙂
