Pink Wings Team, Chicago 2010


Team Pink Wings was the number 1 team in the country for the 60-mile Susan G. Komen 3-Day Walk For The Cure in Chicago last week. We raised nearly $88,000! We had 33 walkers and 4 crew members. Our team was made up of men and women, veterans and virgins (walkers that is), sisters, mothers, daughters, co-workers and friends.

We plan to have another big team in Seattle for the 2011 3-Day walk. Come join us!

Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure 60 mile walk in Chicago, 2010

Well, todays the day. I am leaving for Chicago for the Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure 60 mile walk. This will be my 11th 3 Day walk in the past 11 years. I am proud to say that my team Pink Wings has remained the #1 team in the entire country for fundraising and we just hit $80,000 last night with more money coming in. I can’t even believe what a great feeling this is- to know that I am helping to make a difference in the fight against breast cancer.

For those of you that have donated- THANKS!!!! I can’t continue to do this without you.

For those of you that have not yet donated- there is still time. However, today is the last day that the money will count towards what they announce onstage Friday night for the money our team has raised.

I am less than a couple hundred short of my goal of $2,300. I have been donating money I have raised at events to other team members and to my 16 year old daughter who is walking with me again this year and just met her goal last night!

At this point- if you can even donate just $5 or $10 it would get me that much closer to my goal. If you are unable to donate, please just do me a favor and keep team Pink Wings in your thoughts this weekend for a safe, great weather, no blister walk!!

Thanks again for helping me to make a difference!
