Annemarie's Weekend To End Breast Cancer Site
Join Me For The Ride!
Wow! I went to the orientation on February 1st and my desire to participate in this event was confirmed. Watching the video presentation was especially emotional. It showed a young woman who's sister passed away part way through the two day walk she was doing in her honour. Her sister had breast cancer The young woman, with the support of her family, completed the walk. There are many more stories out there. Some of them reamin untold, about the struggles of breast cancer.
My story...I am doing this for many reasons. The most important one is taking a bold step against breast cancer. I don't want to lose any women in my life to breast cancer. I, along with each participant, want to pave the way to find a cure for breast cancer. As of this week (Feb 21 - 27) I am into my third week of training. I have already walked a total of 65KM's and have many more to walk. I have already met some amazing women who are also walking in this event. I am truly blessed to be participating in this event!
