Mark your calendar for October 13, 2017 for the Walk for Life/Famously Hot Half Marathon!
I CAN'T WAIT FOR OCTOBER 13TH!!!
It is going to be an ELECTRIC DAY! This will be my 8th year participating in the Walk for Life/Famously Hot Pink Half Marathon, 5k and 10k Races on October 13th.
In September, 2011, 8 years ago, I was finishing 6 months of chemo and was facing 3 more surgeries in my battle with triple negative invasive ductal carcinoma. The week after I had my last chemo treatment and "rang the bell," I walked in the Walk for Life with many family members, friends, and co-workers. I am so THANKFUL for their support and to be alive!!
Part of the way I give thanks is by giving back and supporting this event. This year is especially meaningful because I am serving as Chair for the WFLFHPHM 5k & 10k Committee which plans, organizes and celebrates this meaningful and celebratory day. Palmetto Health Breast Center provides vital and life-saving care and treatment for those facing breast cancer. Importantly, all funds raised through this event stay right here in the midlands. No one has to travel outside our community for the best treatment and care. We have it right here, and I do not take that for granted.
Hope to see you running or walking on October 13th at Spirit Communications Park!
And, if you are curious about "Spider Fighter," please ask. It's a story too long to share here, but is such a reminder to me of the fight every cancer patient faces and how an encouraging word can make a huge difference in their fight.
