Well I was curious and I stumbled across this FABULOUS recap from Debs who walked last year in Arizona. It made me laugh, it made me cry, and it got me really excited about participating this year. Here is a very touching paragraph from Deb's blog:
"These people waited out in the heat for everyone of us just to thank US for walking. When in fact it was them we were trying to thank. Families of breast cancer survivors thanking us for walking and making a difference. They came with a hope that due to the funds we raised and the miles we were putting in that there was a cure coming. They had hope. I had a child come and thank me for helping make their mommy get better. It was impossible to go through a cheer station and not be changed forever."
While reading Deb's synopsis I almost felt like I was there. The biker and safety crew pics are hilarious. It is wonderful that so many people in this world are willing to give so much for people they have never met before. Thanks Debs for inspiring me to walk this year!
