The 600 Mile Club-10 years of walking

This is one time the event lived up to the hype.

My Fight Like A Girl teammates and I celebrated the 10-year anniversary of our team’s participation in the Susan G. Komen 3-Day Walk for the Cure.

All in all, our celebration was a lot of fun.

Why We Walk

After so many years of participation, it is easy for the newness to wear off.

  • The opening ceremony has been done before
  • All the stickers and commemorative pins have been worn

Just when you think you may be taking the event for granted, the true meaning is restored.

  • You meet someone who is walking for the first time
  • That walker shares a story of loss or fear of what’s to come
  • You link arms with teammates who walked into your heart

I cannot imagine my life without this event.

It has shown me courage, strength, and the love of sharing joy, grief, and most of all hope. With my 62nd birthday fast approaching, I once again believe in the human spirit.

We can do anything we want in life. We only need to believe we can.

  • Take one step at a time
  • Climb hills without fear
  • Embrace the love of a special team

With Thanksgiving around the corner, I have much to be thankful for.

The 3-Day Walk for the Cure reminds me of that each and every year.

Walk on.




A special thank-you to all my contributors who make this happen every year. You rock!
