Atlanta 2-Day Walk

I am in training for the Atlanta 2-Day Walk for Breast Cancer (September 16 and 17)! Who would have thought I would be participating in this event? Two years ago I was over 100 pounds heavier and could barely make it up the stairs! Now I am walking a couple of miles a day and during this event I am going to walk 30 miles in 2 days! Unbelievable!

I am walking in honor of my mom and a friend who are both survivors as well as my grandmother who died from breast cancer. I am honored to represent these women!

I would really appreciate your support! Please go to the Atlanta 2-Day Walk website and click on the Sponsor a Participant link. That will take you to another page - put in my name and it will take you to my website. If you can, please place a donation there.

You don't have to sponsor me by a monetary donation though! I will also accept prayers and encouragement. This is a HUGE endeavor for me and I am extremely excited. :)

It is really amazing how many people have been changed by the 2 day walk. Just like you, I have lost over 50 pounds training for the two day. Who would have ever thought? Pretty cool! Are you participating in the 2008 walk?
