Today was my very first ever experience at a breast cancer walk and I have to say it was absolutely amazing. The amount of joy and happiness and love throughout the entire day made the blisters so worth it! I’ve shared a little insight into my experience here…
I’m not a morning person, but the day started out with so much pure joy, we couldn’t help to be delighted to be awake and surrounded by so many pink covered people. We stopped every few miles for snacks or potty breaks or toe bandaids. We walked and talked with total strangers. Shared many stories with eachother and all in all had a great beginning to this weekend’s journey.
I’m glad I’m here.
Our sponsorship shirts are now here and fabulous! This is me, Jen Goode, showing off our new stylish pink ribbon garb.
Again, thank you to Zazzle for providing these shirts, they turned out just beautifully! And thank you to all of our generous sponsors for supporting our team and helping to make this happen for us – you’re awesome!
Our walk is this Friday, September 12-14. Most of us will be arriving in Seattle on Thursday with bells on… or at least our cute pink shirts. I’m a little nervouse about the early mornings – but I’m excited for the event and looking forward to this fabulous experience. I imagine we’ll be walking in a sea of pink ribbon happiness – I can hardly wait!
Hopefully we’ll be able to share some photos and videos along the way. My camera batteries are charging right now!
I realized this morning, I leave two weeks from today to embark on a journey I am sure to remember the rest of my life.
Earlier this month many of us attended Affiliate Summit in Boston. We met each other, many of us, for the first time.
This is a few of us… Including my husband, who won’t be walking but proudly wears boob shirts.
While attending the event we sold fabulous buttons that said “I Gave back” for $10 each. We only spent a single day selling, but came away with just over $1600.00. More importantly we came away having met so many more that shared stories and heart felt compation for the cause. It was truly a great exeperience, and I imagine just a small taste of what lies ahead.
So now that I am in “the walk is almost here” mode, I, along with the rest of the team are starting to pick up last minute necessities. We’re finalizing our registration processes, wrapping up our travel plans and trying to mentally prepare for this big adventure.
I’m excited! I have no idea, really, of what awaits — but it’s a challenge I am looking forward to – because it’s a path to a change I want to be a part of!
