the 3Day is here!!!

THANK YOU!!!! THANK YOU!!!!

Because of your support, not only did I meet the $2,200 fundraising goal, but so did EVERY member of my team. We have raised over $11,000 for breast cancer research and we could not have done it without the support of so many individuals. It has been such a rewarding experience already. We head out Friday morning and will walk and walk and walk. At the end of the day on Sunday, 1,000s of participants will have walked 60 miles in three days. Here is a link to the Supporter Page. There will be a live web cam and maybe you'll see our team. We're wearing lime green shirts with sneaker-wearing ladybugs. I will be sure to post pictures when I get back on Monday. Please pray for great weather, good conversations, yummy food, good sleeping and NO BLISTERS! (Can you tell what my greatest fear is right now?!?)

Again, thanks to all of you who are supporting me in prayer and those who supported financially. You are all appreciated.

Lastly, I wanted to send a shout out to those individuals you have told me about that have faced the pain of cancer - some are surviors, some are in the midst and some have lost the battle. We walk for them.

I'm praying for you, Rebecca!

I'll be walking with you in spirit... for my Grandma (survived it once), my Mom (survived it twice), and my sister Evie (I can't believe it's been almost 12 years since she passed away from it - doesn't quite seem that long).

Again, THANK YOU for this amazing sacrifice, and for raising those funds!

xoxo - Ruth
