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.

I'm still fairly new around here - but I know a good cause and a good person when I see one!!

We run the Susan G. Komen race locally, I admire your spirit. I will follow your link and help out.

The pink ribbon avatar thing started in 2006 when I walked my first 3 Day- 60 miles in three days... and around 500 miles of training. I did pretty good for an old, fat woman.

This is my fourth 3 Day and the pink ribbon avatar change has become a regular event. Along with the avatar change, I have also been in the habit of carrying the names of loved ones- survivors and angels- along with me on the 60 mile trip. They're good company.

The SO and I also walk the Komen every year. I have a thing about getting out and really making a lot of noise about awareness- still the closest thing we have to a cure. I believe that we deserve better than that.

It's great to add a new friend and supporter to the cause. It is definitely one very close to my heart.

You should know by now

that it means absolutely nothing to say no text or end of file in the body dont you? Because then everyone has to open up the message to see that you have basically wasted their time.
this is exactly why nobody likes a nasty HAL unit around

Yes I do know but I also know

That Scummy just has to look regardless of whatever is posted. Besides it didn't fit in the Top Bar.

Oh and Bump it's needed again. :0
