And we're off!

Beloved friend, Annie Searle,
shows fine form as a flag bearer, 2008.
The season-long work of fundraising and training has come to a close for my team, Kindred Spirits.  It's time to zip our duffels and head on out!  The 2012 Susan G Komen 3-Day for the Cure officially opens tomorrow at 0400 at CenturyLink Field in Seattle!

Our team has raised over $221,000 this year and engaged in countless conversations around Komen policies, strategies and historic accomplishments.  We've climbed hills and mountains and debated the finer points of 'inclines'.  We've logged hundreds of miles on trails, concrete and asphalt, one careful step at a time.

Use this post as a reminder to tend to your health and advocate for the well-being of others.  And if you're inclined, offer up a prayer or positive thought for our safety and stamina as we take it to the streets for 60 miles! 


  1. All my hopes and pride in you got posted on my Facebook page, but Ginny said she would convey it to you.

    I'll be coming out to cheer on Saturday, probably in the afternoon, and I'll be looking for you!

    All my love,


  2. Loving your intentional life, dear sister. Your thoughtful life is such a gift. Bless you, dear one. Love, sister G
