Atlanta 3 Day Breast Cancer Walk

The weekend of the Atlanta 3 Day Breast Cancer walk is finally approaching and this time next week I'll be completing the final day of the walk. In preparation, Keith and I have been doing our last training walks; Friday we hiked 5 miles, Saturday we did 15, and today we'll do 10 miles. Tuesday I'll do one final hike and cross my fingers that I'm ready to walk 60 miles in 3 days.

(From L - R) My Mom, Aunt Lillian, and Aunt Dot
I've mentioned in a previous post that I'm walking in memory of my Aunt Lillian who died last year after losing her battle with breast cancer and for two of my sisters who have struggled with this disease. I'll be carrying a picture of my Mom with her sisters and one of me with mine on this walk.

I also wanted to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has supported me and made contributions that will help fund the fight against Breast Cancer. Contributions are still being accepted and can be made at the 3 Day site by clicking HERE. Thank you!
