We’ve been making the rounds in the blogosphere, and just wanted to share what other people are saying about us.
Amy Caldwell Bixby talks about starting a team for Race for the Cure, and that “I wrote before about how Susan G. Komen for the Cure has been an amazing financial help. Immediately upon my diagnosis last October, this foundation offered me a grant that covered all of my medical costs. They have also provided us with an additional grant to help offset other expenses due to my cancer. We will always be grateful for Komen’s generosity and work on my behalf.”
Scott and Brayden Weiss start a Race for the Cure team in honor of Traci Ann Weiss, their wife and mother who passed away from breast cancer after a five-year fight.
CrossFit Littleton has started a team for Race for the Cure, and already has 8 members.
Stephanie has started a Race for the Cure team and is hoping for more members.
Julie Brown is tracking her training for Race for the Cure and is flying in specifically for the Race.
Sheri L. Thompson writes about why the Race for the Cure is so important to her since, “As the daughter of a breast cancer survivor and the granddaughter of a woman who put up a valiant fight for four years, this is a no-miss event for me. I pull on pink sweats, slip into my pink tank and douse my braids with hot-pink hairspray.”
Dr. Dianne from Porter Hospital writes about The Breast Cancer 3-Day, “It takes a lot of funding to do the research necessary to determine how to prevent diseases. The work that has been done in the last 10 years has brought us a long way toward the day we have a cure. However, we are not there yet, so this weekend 900 people from Denver and across the country are doing this 3 day, sixty-mile walk. Each of them has raised $2300 or more in order to walk. So this is not a race, in fact, it is all about celebrating together the funds that have been raised to do fund this very important research and prevention efforts.”
Dr. Taylor writes about volunteering as a Chiropractor for The Breast Cancer 3-Day in Denver.
Thanks to everyone for helping us get the word out about all the great work we’re doing!
