2008 Breast Cancer 3-day walk....from my sis

The following is from my sister-in -law (Michelle Roberts) who lives up north of Seattle. If you recall, I posted her amazing accomplishment from last years walk, here on this site. Please read the following and if you have it in your heart to donate to this worthy cause, I believe the link is embedded below. If you have any questions regarding this please feel free to email me.
Thanks. D

Yes, I’m doing it again! I registered for the 2008Breast Cancer 3-Day. I had such an incredible experience doing the 3-Day last year that I’m going back for more. I’m so excited about this event, even though this year I really know what I’ve gotten myself into.

This 60-mile walk over the course of three days raises funds for Susan G. Komen for the Cure and the National Philanthropic Trust Breast Cancer Fund. Last year, I raised $3005.00 and heard so many amazing stories along the way. The stories covered all walks of life. Like the guy and his 4 friends that were walking in memory of his wife. They decided to walk during one of their poker parties, he was my age. There was the woman that walked all 60 miles on crutches! Or the husband and wife that were on the “survivor” team, walking in her honor. Our family knows of 6 women who have fought this disease. Not all of them have won their battle. Walking 60 miles was hard, but I will keep walking until breast cancer is no longer. I walk because EVERYONE DESERVES A LIFETIME. I walk because I can.

I need your help. I am raising the minimum goal of $2200 with the hopes of attaining last years’ total. I couldn’t have done it last year without all of your generous support, and can only hope for the same generosity this year. Please make a donation to support my fundraising efforts. They have also made it possible to make a donation every month for four months if you donate online at http://www.the3day.org/. You may also make a one-time donation. Many companies have matching gifts programs, so please ask your employer if they will double your donation with a matching gift.

To make a donation, go to http://www.the3day.org/, click on Donate now, and search for my name. Once you get to my personal fundraising page, scroll down and click on the button to donate to me. If you don’t want to donate online, you can download and print a donation form from that page that can be mailed in with your donation. You can also send the check directly to me, payable to the Breast Cancer 3-day and I will submit it.

If you have any questions or want to hear more about what I am doing, please let me know. Thanks for all of your support!

Babe, you need to post that it's Michelle Roberts. If you click on the link, you have to find her name... would help if people knew what that was :-)
