Go Mom!

My Mom is going to walk 60 miles this Friday, Saturday and Sunday! 20 miles each day. She's been training for months now. And she's been raising money, too. It's all for a good cause -- the Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure. Net proceeds from the Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure are invested in breast cancer research and community programs.

Her fundraising goal was $5,000. She started at $0 last November or so. Tonight when I checked her thermometer, she was up to $5,777!! Woo-hoo! I love it when a goal is massively exceeded: 115+% - awesome.

See what she has to say about it herself in her posts here:

And while you're there, make a donation. Do it in honor of somebody you know who is fighting cancer. Or in memory of a loved one you've lost.

Don't worry if you run across this later: she'll still be fundraising after the event is over. I think she told me donations could still be made on that web page until the end of the calendar year.

Go Mom!

We'll be there to cheer you on over the finish line on Sunday.

Love ya,
David and Robin
