Walking the 3 Day and boy, do I need help!!!

By Tig2 ·
So it turns out that I WILL be walking the 3 Day again- or trying to. Once again, I am looking to my TR peers in the hope that you will continue to support my effort in raising funds and awareness about breast cancer. Join me and get pink! (Yes, JD. Real men DO get pink!)

Long timers know this, new friends may not. The 3 Day is a walk- 60 miles over three consecutive days, with the goal of raising money and awareness about breast cancer. This will be the fourth time I have made this trip.

Every year, approximately 175.000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer. Every year, approximately 40.000 die. What we know is that the earlier it is caught and treated, the greater chance to survive. What isn't generally known is that 4,000 men die every year too. This is not a disease linked to gender, it is an equal opportunity killer. I think that it is time to stop it in it's tracks. Long since time.

I am a survivor since 2003. I believe that there is a cure out there somewhere. I walk in order to provide the monetary resources to find that cure and to spread awareness. But I also walk to celebrate the lives of the women and men who have lost their fight. You can help in that effort too. PM me the name of a person you would like to have honored over the three days of the walk. I will carry that person on a ribbon with me for all 60 miles. I'll even send you their ribbon at the end of the walk.

I am also offering the hottest thing since the TR mug- which we can all agree has become a tad ho-hum since Soni has been so efficient at getting them out. I am offering to hand paint the glass adult beverage container of your choice with a pink ribbon and anything else you specify. Alternatively, I will send you a pendant filled with hopes and dreams. You will need to send me an address but that really is the easy part.

Nick- your glass is already in the works. But more money might get you two! Be the very first to own two!!!

Breast cancer is a disease that has over-stayed its welcome. Join me in stomping it out.

Thank you all. Thank you so very much.

Leave us remember why we do this.
