Inspired by many

13 May

For the past five or six years, the gals on my mom’s side of the family have gathered on Mother’s Day morning to participate in the Susan G. Komen Walk for the Cure at the Mall of America. Each year, the event gets progressively bigger – and more inspiring. The signs, the people, the groups, the support and the atmosphere all conjure to create a memorable experience worth it for anyone to take part in.

Walk for the Cure

While I only know of two people in my entire extended family who have conquered breast cancer, it is two too many. I am thankful for how healthy our family is, but am inspired with the strength of the families who have witnessed loved ones lose or defeat this horrible illness. I feel strongly about kicking (any and all) cancer in the butt – and truly hope for a cure so these walks aren’t needed anymore. But until that day comes, I will continue to participate in such an inspiring event – and I think you should too.
