Race for the cure!

What am I doing?

For the 7th year in a row I'm participating to support the Virginia Blue Ridge Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure because I want to make a difference in the fight against breast cancer. And this year, I'm changing up and I will be running the 5K....my first time running a race! Please help me reach my fundraising goal by making a tax-deductible donation today. 

You may donate online with your credit card by clicking the donate button above the thermometer. Your support helps us get another step closer to a world without breast cancer.

Why I'm doing it.

Breast cancer has affected the lives of 10 women in my family. 4 wonderful ladies lost their battle under the age of 55 including my Dad's mother. She was 43 and passed 1 month before I was born. In 2008 my sister was diagnosed at the age of 34 with stage 1 breast cancer. She endured surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation treatments. Fortunately, with her inspiring strong will to fight, a lot of love & support, and the advancements of modern medicine she won her battle and is now cancer free! I am walking to celebrate her fight, to honor those in my heart who watch from above, and to promote awareness in the fight against breast cancer! 


What does Komen do?
For more than 25 years, Komen for the Cure has played a critical role in every major advance in the fight against breast cancer, transforming how the world talks about and treats this disease, and helping to turn millions of breast cancer patients into breast cancer survivors.

Over the next 25 years, an estimated 25 million women around the world will be diagnosed with breast cancer if we don't find a cure.  Komen will not stop until we discover and deliver the cures. That's our promise.

We Will Find the Cure! Please join me in the fight!
