BENEFITING: Susan G. Komen
EVENT DATE: Apr 22, 2018
This will be our first time running in the Diva Race Series, and we are so excited about tutus, tiaras, boas, and all things PINK!!! We are even MORE excited knowing that this run is for a GREAT cause. Breast Cancer awareness has been important to me since October of 2005 when my mother was diagnosed. It was the second month of my freshman year of college, and it was a complete shock to me when I came home one weekend and heard that news. Over the next year or so there were tears, late nights, trips to the doctor and rounds of chemo, shopping for wigs, reconstruction surgery and shopping for new bras. My mom became even MORE of a best friend to me than she had ever been, and I am happy to say that 13 years later she is doing fantastic and is cancer-free. She is a breast cancer survivor!!! Since then, I have donated to various fundraisers and purchased things to support the cause, and I'll continue to do so so that we can find a cure to this thing and help others beat it. Joey, his 6 year-old daughter and I are excited about the upcoming event! We would appreciate your joining us in our efforts by making a small donation to our cause. Thanks for reading, and thanks for supporting us in our race!
