2005

 

What began as a personal challenge to walk 60 miles in 3 days and raise $1700 in 1998, has become an even bigger challenge in 2005.  My goal this year is to walk 6 of the Avon Walks for Breast Cancer, and 10 of the Breast Cancer 3Days (Susan G. Komen Foundation).  My fundraising goal is to raise more than last year ($130,000) so that my total since 1998 will surpass $500,000.  I will be walking 42 days, approximately 9 hours a day.  While I am walking those 378 hours, 8027 women/men will be diagnosed with breast cancer---that is one person every 3 minutes.  While I am walking those 378 hours 1720 women/men will die of breast cancer---that is one person every 14 minutes.  My  job of walking and fundraising is not done. Please join me in this fight.

Thank you visiting my website.

July 2, 2005--Update
 
I have made a couple of changes in my walks.  I will be walking in all 8 Avon Walks for Breast Cancer, and in 6 of the Breast Cancer 3•Days.  I have completed 7 so far, and next week in SF I will be walking in my 50th long distance walk for breast cancer since 1998.  This year I have raised more than $95,000 for both organizations, with a grand total of $545,000.  I can hardly believe this myself, and could never have imagined this when I did my first walk in 1998.  Thank you everyone for your support
