1 Week until the Loves Me Tote Raffle

I will be raffling off the Loves Me Tote in a week! Please make a donation if you can. Every little bit helps! So far Linda, Amber and Diana have make donations. Thanks ladies!

I thought that I would share the letter I sent out to my family and friends about why I walk.

Dear Family and Friends,

Yes, I'm doing it again - I signed up for the 2010 Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure! I had such an incredible experience doing the Komen 3-Day for the Cure last year that I'm going back for more. I'm so excited about this event, everyone that participates in the walk is so positive and it is really inspirational to see so many people working together for the same cause.

The Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure is a 60-mile walk over the course of three days that raises funds for breast cancer research and community programs. I was inspired to walk last year because of my friend Sheri Wallace. Sheri battled breast cancer for 10 years and decided to make a stand and join the 3-day walk along with her sisters, nieces and friends. Our team of 18 people raised almost $50,000 (each participant has to raise at least $2,300). It was an amazing accomplishment and I met so many wonderful friends along the way.

This year, again, Sheri inspired me to walk, but for another reason entirely. In May Sheri lost her battle with breast cancer. We are gathering a team of people who loved her and are walking in her memory. As I struggle with the sadness of losing Sheri, I'm drawing hope from knowing that the funds we raise this year will prevent another person this same heartbreak.

I hope that you will be able to make a donation to help me reach my fundraising goal. Additionally, if you are interested in signing up to participate in the walk please let me know, we would love for you to join us! The Breast Cancer 3 Day is truly an inspirational event to be a part of! Thank you for your support! I really appreciate it!

Sincerely, Alison
