Who walks 20 miles one day, goes to bed, then wakes up and does the very same thing the next day -- and the day after? A masochist? A lunatic? How about one who's fighting cancer? Or one who wants to honor a loved one who fought cancer? Or one who's raising money for the cure?
Starting October 3, add me to that list of crazy, motivated people. I've been selected by Energizer® as San Francisco's Keep Going® Blogger for the Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure® 3 day, 60-mile walk. The Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure® is an event where participants walk 60 miles over the course of 3 days to raise funds to end breast cancer forever. I will be walking in the San Francisco Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure which will take place on October 1 - October 3, 2010, in honor of my aunt, who beat breast cancer and is alive and kicking today, and in memory of my grandmother, who beat breast cancer when I was a child and passed away a decade ago.
I'll be blogging about my experiences, both during training and during the event itself -- so stay tuned for more posts both here and on my personal blog, Finding Bonggamom. Energizer® is sponsoring my participation fee in the event, but the more money raised in the fight against cancer, the better -- so I'm hoping you can donate any amount to the cause by clicking on the widget below. If you can't, no worries, just wish me luck!
