|My friend and I at our first making strides walk|
It is hard to believe that is has been a year since my very first Making Strides event. I'm excited to do another one and hopefully I'm in better shape this time around. I truly believe that these walks make a big difference by helping spread awareness but by also showing support. I'll be walking for my mama Janet again this year, and I'm excited because a few days afterward I'll be flying out to visit her.
Since 1993, 8 million walkers across the United States have raised more than $460 million to help fight breast cancer through Making Strides events. In 2011 alone, 1 million walkers across the country collected more than $60 million to help fight this disease.
This year I've named my team, Steppin' 4 Boobies. If you'd like to make a donation, learn more about this wonderful organization, or if you're interested in finding a location in your area just check out this link 2012 Making Strides Against Breast Cancer
