Today, I proudly participated for the first time as a Team Captain in the 17th Annual Susan G Komen Race For The Cure - Arkansas! I walked 3 miles with some of my closest friends and family. I want to send a HUGE shout out to Hanes who sponsored our team shirts. We proudly sported the Hanes Passionately Pink For A Cure Logo on our shirts this year. Walking with over 45,000 women in this amazing event is such an honor. To see so many people banding together for one cause...a wonderful cause is so very touching. There were women of all ages participating in the race and men of all ages on the sidelines cheering us on! What a privilege it was to have worked hard to help raise $1,335 toward this awesome cause. I want to thank each and every girl who came out to walk with us in the Race For The Cure today and those of you who worked diligently to collect donations on your own and at Get Down Downtown where we raised $1,000. We had 39 team members to register for the race and of those 39 members, 24 showed up to walk and 3 came to run! We completed the entire 3 miles.  Unfortunately we never got to meet up with our runners. I can't imagine why in a crowd of 45,000+ people we could not find three women! (grin) A couple of my favorite shirts/signs said: "Squeeze a Boobie, Stop the war in My Rack" "Save 2nd Base". I have put together a slide show of some of the fun we had. Hope you have time to take a look at it. Thanks to everyone who helped make Team CrAzY For A Cure so much fun. You ladies are truly a blessing in my life and I am so excited to have experienced such a wonderful thing with you all. I am already planning next year's fun!!!

Sarge, I am so thankful for Miss Bee who has fought this horrible disease and beat it!!! That's what we're working for. Early detection is key...some day we pray that there will be a cure. But, until then we walk and pray!!!
