60 Miles, 3 Days, 1 Goal

I am walking in my 2nd Michigan Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure in August 2011. The day after I completed my 1st 3-Day I logged into the Susan G. Komen website and registered for next year's event.

Was the walk easy? No. So why sign up again? Because I can! I can raise the awareness, I can raise the funds, I can walk the walk! And this year I am fortunate enough to have my sister join me on this awesome journey. There are thousands of 3-Day walkers who can't walk with their sisters, I embrace this year's journey with every ounce of gratitude!!

Please follow along as Jennifer and I fundraise, train, raise awareness, possibly argue, and find out more about each other than we ever imagined!

Catching Up on Blogging!

Wow, the past few weeks have been amazing and my blog has been neglected! Let’s see, Jen & I had our garage sale fundraiser this past weekend which is really what we spent the last several weeks preparing for. We had hundreds and hundreds of items donated to us by friends and family so there was a LOT of cleaning, sorting and pricing going on. To say the sale was a success is an understatement. Not only was it financially successful but we were once again touched by the generosity and support of our family, friends and community (thank you Kay & Hubert for putting in 11 long hours on Friday, we could not have gotten through that day without you!!!). I also have to give big kudos to my two kids who jumped right in throughout the weekend helping us break-down and set-up without a whine, grumble or complaint!

And so now we move forward with the planning of our final fund-raising event – Spaghetti Dinner & Trivia Night with Tin Can Auction, which will be held at the Genesee Otter Lake Campground clubhouse on Saturday, May 14th. The sauce has been made and frozen (thank you Craig family for your generous donation of sauce, noodles & cheese!), and baskets for auction are being assembled, picked-up and tagged. If you’d like to camp for the weekend they are offering “Buy 1 Night, Get 1 Free” so total cost would only be $25 to camp for Friday & Saturday!! But you are always welcome to just come up for the day, enjoy the dinner and have some fun with Trivia.
