Over three days this November, I will be walking 60 miles in the Arizona Breast Cancer 3-Day. This walk will be much more than “just a walk” – it will be raising money to support Susan G. Komen for the Cure and the National Philanthropic Trust Breast Cancer Fund.

Over the next several months, I will be spending many, many, many hours in training (By the time the walk starts, I will have logged enough miles to take me from Phoenix to my hometown of Houston!

I have committed to raising $2,200 to participate in this walk. Please consider making a fully tax-deductible donation to help me achieve this goal. I’ll be doing all the walking...all you need to do is follow this link to my fundraising headquarters to submit your contribution.

You may know someone who has been affected by breast cancer and I would be proud to walk in her honor as well. Please feel free to send me an email or leave a comment with their name. I will create a ribbon just for them and attach it to my backpack.

Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death for all women, and the leading cause of death in women between the ages of 40 and 55. Both its cause and the means for its cure remain undiscovered. I’m taking on this challenge to do something big that will help raise awareness and help in finding a cure.

Thank you for taking the time to read my blog. I hope that you’ll share in this incredible adventure with me. Please leave comments or email me (txaggie02@hotmail.com) if you have any questions.

Swing Batter Batter

After the volleyball tournament I went to the Diamondbacks game with Sandy. It was Chris Young bobble head night. The Diamondbacks played the Detroit Tigers. They ended up losing 2-3 but it was a good game. After the game we stayed for the Trace Adkins concert. I was surprised to see so many country music fans in Arizona. It was a great concert. We had a blast! I am going to count this as my training walk for the day because we parked a mile away from the stadium plus we walked around the stadium to get to our seats. So I got in at least a 3 mile walk on Saturday in addition to playing 7 volleyball games. I am exhausted.
