Rollin’ for a Cure

By  | 

We always like to have fun here at RollinSD, but when we came upon the news that a few of our readers were impacted by breast cancer, we wanted to show our support for a topic that matters and help them achieve their goals.

Taking place in 15 cities across the USA, the 3-Day for the Cure is a series of three-day, 60-mile walk that raise millions of dollars for breast cancer research, education, and community health programs. Breast Cancer 3-Day participants raise a minimum of $2,300 and walk an average of 20 miles a day, educating thousands of people about breast health. The net proceeds fund breast cancer research, education, and community outreach programs. Since its inception, more than $400 million has been raised.

This year, the 3 Day Walk for a Cure takes place in San Diego, November 19 – 21, 2010. The walk will begin at the Del Mar Racetrack and continue on 20 miles until they reach Crown Point. There you will find hot pink tents; the walkers will be able to take a nice hot shower and rest up for the next day. Day 2 takes them 20 more miles through Mission Bay, Mission Beach, Ocean Beach, Old Town, Point Loma and eventually back to camp at Crown Point. Day 3 is the final leg! They pack up camp and walk 20 additional miles and end the walk at Petco Park for closing ceremonies.

We should all be Rollin’ For A Cure!

Jody’s Lovley Lady Lumps – I’ve joined my friend Wendee, who’s closest friend Jodi, a single mother at 40 years old, was diagnosed with breast cancer just 2 months ago.  Even more personally for me, I never meet my Grandmother, Hazel, as she died of breast cancer before I was even born.

My neighbor, Debbie and my client Karen have both triumphed in their fight against breast cancer in the last few years and as I schedule my first mammogram, I’m also walking for myself, that the procedure becomes more comfortable and more accurate in finding masses and cancer cells before they grow.

Overall, I’m walking for every person who has been affected by this disease and hoping that my efforts will help to raise awareness and create a better future for women and the men in their lives.
