My reasons for walking in this 15th year of my participation in the fight against breast cancer have expanded each year.....the reasons will always be about challenging myself physically, challenging myself to raise as much money as possible, and honoring my husband's request to me to keep doing this with the hope that the research that will save life's of breast cancer patients will have the 'trickle down' effect to save others fighting other cancers.....I honor his memory with every step and every dollar.....

This year, in addition to all of the above, I honor my donors......I have donors who have continued to support this effort year after year.....many have been donating for 14 years...can you imagine the difference that each of you has made when you total your donations over the years.....I know that my walking is not what saves lives....I know that it is all of your donations that are providing the monies for research, providing free mammograms, providing meals and transportation for women....your monies are saving are the 'behind the scenes' heroes in this battle.....I honor you and your contribution to this are strong, powerful, bold and are making a difference.....

If you would like to be one my donors for 2012 as I strive to reach my $1.5 million goal you may donate on line by clicking 'make a donation'...

I wear a banner of ribbons on my back attached to my camelbak water system.  My sponsors' names are on either a white or blue ribbon.....If you would like me to honor a special person, their names will be on a pink ribbon.  Please send me the names of those you would like me to honor   I wear the banner with great pride and with a deep sense of responsibility to those I am honoring....

I thank all of my breast cancer network of friends for all of your support.....You are all the best......
