Hey all!

I'm signed up to walk in the Susan G. Komen 3 Day for the Cure in November. Every person has to raise $2300.00 to participate. I am currently at $1,430.00 after the sale and a self donation (since I did it as a check it is lagging showing up)

Still need to come up with 870.00

I said my legs need your help because this event is a crazy work out for me - the event itself is 60 miles of walking over 3 days - plus all of the training walks leading up to it.

I said America's breasts need your help because the proceeds go to screening, treatment and research for breast cancer...not only does this save breasts, but the people they are attached to as well.

Here is a link to my personal page on the Susan G. Komen site:


Even the smallest donated amounts such as donations of $5, $10, or $20 ALL HELP! Plus, they are tax deductable!

I know, Bill - I cannot thank you enough for helping out with the charity benefit sale with donated items!!! I'm getting really nervous with it only being a month away. I've walked hundreds of miles preparing for this and I don't want it to be for not! :O)

If 45 people donated $20.00 I would be able to walk :O)

In trying to keep this thread under 100 posts, I'm just going to start updating the first post on current up-to-date information. :)

updated first post....The sale made some money and a teammate is having a sale with the left overs in a week at her place. Between the sale and a self donation, I am sending in a check for 400.00 which puts me at still over 800.00 away.
