"It's amazing how friends come together and give you the energy and care you need to meet your personal challenges. This experience changed my life and I`m back to do it again."


How do I share with you this great experience...A will to make a difference, an energy that bonds people together, a journey ...

It started early in 2009, I had lost my mother to cancer 3 years prior and I felt a great emptiness...I needed to do something. My sister-in-law and a great group of ladies were planning to walk again in this quest to “End Women’s Cancers.” I knew about The Weekend but was afraid. Yes! Afraid to talk about the disease, afraid of my emotions, and afraid of not having the strength to complete the walk.

After great consideration, I joined the The Road Warriors Team. WOW! What an amazing group of women! I started my fundraising campaign, timid and reserved, but I talked to my friends—the people I cared most about—and asked for their support. It`s amazing how friends come together and gives you the energy and care you need to meet your personal challenges!

Well, thanks to all of you, we completed our fundraising last year, exceeding our team goals. We walked together; for us and for you! I’M SO PROUD!

This experience changed my life and I’m back for 2011! Share this incredible adventure with me!
