Heading to Santa Barbara!




Tomorrow I'm off to Santa Barbara for the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer!  This is the 10th year for this walk, and my first time doing the Avon walk.  I'm looking forward to meeting up with the Trekkin' for Ta-Tas team - Sue Lyn Maves and Diana Gabaldon.  The picture above is from last year's Komen 3-Day when Diana and I worked as route markers.

Here it is, by the numbers . . . . . .

1 - night we'll spend in a pink tent

2 - days walking

3 - miles between pit stops

39 - total miles we'll walk

451 - miles I've walked since last November

$1,825.50 - donations I received

$6,084.80 - donations our team collected


Saturday and Sunday I will be walking:

For the 1 in 8 who will be diagnosed with breast cancer

In memory of my Mom - a two time breast cancer survivor

In memory of my Aunt Phyllis, Aunt Bernadine, great Aunt Grace, Cousin Linda

In honor of my cousins-in-law Konnie, and Kris


Thank you to the many friends who have supported me in reaching my goal and allowing me to walk.  I'll have lots of pictures and memories to share when I return!
