Update on Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure

If you read my last post, you already know that due to fund raising circumstances I was unable to raise the required $2300 to  participate in the Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure 60 mile walk in Boston on July 23-25.  That being said, my daughter-in-law did participate and here are a few pictures from her experience.
**Disclaimer** The quality of these pictures is not good.  They look fine when I view them on my computer, but when I downloaded them to my blog post, not so good.

That building in the background looks like the designer had to much to drink! 
I hope if any of you know anyone that is training for a Susan G. Komen walk that you will support them.  Every $5 adds up.  I raised 62% of my $2300, and was disappointed that I did not reach at least the 80% mark, but there is always next year.  Thank you to all those that donated to my effort, I know the Susan G. Komen Foundation is thrilled to get my 62%. 


  1. I'm so sorry you didn't get to walk but I think that was a good compromise so your DIL could.

    I love your new template - flowers and buttons are symbols of a good graminator :)

  2. Im sorry you didnt get to walk. I think its truly amazing though that you have raised what you did!

    As you know, Cancer is dear to my heart. Every little bit helps!! You have raised money for something so wonderful and should feel a great sense of accomplishment
