2012 SGK 3-Day for The Cure ~ Tampa Style!

Mon, May 21, 2012 at 7:46 PM

[url= http://www.the3day.org/site/TR/2012/TampaBayEvent2012?px=1165258&pg=personal&fr_id=1770]My SGK 3-Day Personal Page

Hello Smackers! Since 2005 I have been honored to be a part of the Susan G Komen 3-Day for The Cure Community. I started as a Crew Member in 2005, and registered as a Walker for the first time in 2006. With the exception of 2009, I have participated each year since them; I alternate between Crewing and Walking and this year will be my 4th Walking year!

Why am I telling you this? A requirement to be a Walker is fund-raising; each Walker must raise a minimum of $2300. That's not good enough for me! My personal goal this year is $3500! That's where YOU can come in!

In past years, I have been honored to see names of my fellow Smackers show up on my donation Honor Roll. I hope that can be the same this year! In case you're unsure, the donations do not come to me; they go directly to SGK for The Cure.

We raise funds for research, programs and grants that are funded through SGK for The Cure. SGK is so much more than a pink ribbon. And for me, it's a very personal cause. Breast Cancer struck my mother when I was just 4 years old; in the crude times of 1975, they thought they "got it all". When it came back a short 4 years later, it was everywhere. I lost my mother a month before my 9th birthday. Not being enough pain, her older sister lost her battle just 8 years later.

Any donation you can give is greatly appreciated. NO amount is too small, honestly! I would love to see my Honor Roll scrolling with name after name after name. It all adds up!

Please click the link above a take a moment to visit my personal page.

Thanks for taking the time to read this. Now back to the regularly scheduled programming of tattoos, VIP experiences, and of course, Lemmy!

    Thanks for replying E & C!!

    For those that may not know, this Walk is a journey of 60 miles over 3 days; and it's like nothing I've ever experienced before. It truly is my ONE time that I leave the industry of wine and spirits behind and just focus on this amazing community I've joined! Beleive me, this Walk KICKS YOUR ASS, but I have learned not too complain too much...especially when you're walking behind someone with a sign on their back that reads "think blisters hurt? try chemotherapy". That stops the bitching quickly!

    I needed to "bump" this up...falling too far down!

    The Walk is not until the end of October, but I'd really like to get my minimum requirement much, much sooner.

    Thanks for getting that for me, Elly!! I had a bit of "drama" with my nephew starting Thursday afternoon that kept my attention through Friday. I love him to the moon and back, but sometimes I just want to shake him...and his mother!!

    A big THANK YOU goes to "JH"!!!

    I'm starting to get back into training next week. Just as Florida is heating up!

    Anyone that can, please try to give a little something.

    I needed a change, but I don't think I'll keep this one too long...it was one I had on my laptop (easily accessible!). You can see Marley's head just below my chin.

    Thanks for the bump, RW!! I have got to get cracking on both fund-raising and training. I'm doing a small 3-mile walk tonight; during the week the most we do is 8 miles because the walks are in the evening. On the flip side, I won't get up at stupid-o'clock on a Saturday for less than 8 miles. The training walk leaders all insist on starting around 6:30/7:00 on Saturday morning...no thanks! Plus, I'm a veteran; don't need to train like a first-timer!

    It's been awhile. Marley, how are you doing with the training and the donations?

    Howdy!! I wish I could say differently, but I'm pretty much in the same place I was. Work has been insane, so I haven't been able to attend any training walks and I haven't done anything more with fundraising. That will change this week!

    Thanks for asking! Just discussing the event gets me motivated!!
