3-Day 60 Mile Walk

April 9th, 2008 by Karen

As I noted over on my work blog I registered today to participate in the Breast Cancer 3-Day in Seattle in September. It’s a sixty mile (yes 60 mile) walk over three days. I’ll be part of the team “Affiliate Marketers Worldwide” with Missy Ward of Affiliate Summit, Jen Goode, and a few other fantastic affiliate marketers. This is a fundraising event for the Susan G. Komen for the Cure and National Philanthropic Trust which in turn funds important breast cancer research, education, screening and treatment.

I’ve been very lucky in that no one in my immediate family has had breast cancer. Several of my extended family members have had various skin cancers, but that’s mostly related to too much sun exposure. It happens when you are a farming family. I have however had many friends that have battled breast cancer and they are the reason that I’ve made this commitment. I have watched my dear friends deal with the fear and the side effects of their treatments with amazing grace and dignity and determination. Some have battled and won. Some have been called away, far before those of us left here were ready to let them go. In honor of these fantastic women who have blessed my life, I will walk.

My current fundraising goal for the 3-Day Walk is $2,200. If you are able to, please sponsor me. I’d love to pass my goal far in advance!
