Susan G. Komen 3 Day DFW Event

Updated on January 15, 2011

The Journey Begins

Today I made a public commitment to participate in something I have wanted to do for many years, the Susan G. Komen 3 Day Walk event.  This something I have wanted to do for years, ever since my 2nd Mom, Maureen, was diagnosed and eventually succumbed to breast cancer. My childhood friend Jax is now battling this horrible disease, which adds to my determination to do this. 

The 3 day walk is a powerful, demanding event that requires a strong personal, physical and fund raising commitment. I am putting together a team, and am in the process of gathering team, training and fund raising information. 

The 3 day walk dates for DFW are November 4 – 6, and involves a 60 mile journey over the 3 days. Not for the meek, and I believe this will be a life changing event.   This gives me 40 weeks to prepare, and I’m going to need every day!

I’m excited about doing this!  This is a life experience I want to share with my friends.  In this spirit, I will be chronicling my experience in this blog – the good, the bad and the ugly.  Come along for the journey – happy walking!
