JOIN CARLA & THE THREE DAY


Hello everyone,
I was so happy to read Karen's email suggesting that we all get together to do the breast cancer walk. I had been thinking of doing the walk myself and was preparing to send out a letter to everyone when the tragic news about Jen came out. I wasn't sure if I should put it out to everyone and then when I read Karen's email it seemed to be a sign. I checked with her and she gave me the go ahead to organize it all. There are two walks which happen in the October time and the one I have signed up to do is the Philadelphia 3-Day Walk. I would love to put together a team of sisters to walk in the Breast Cancer 3-Day and hopefully some of you will be able to join me. We’ll be walking 60 scenic miles over three uplifting days to help fund breast cancer research and community outreach programs through Susan G. Komen for the Cure and the National Philanthropic Trust Breast Cancer Fund. There is a minimum of $2200 per person that needs to be raised. This seems like a lot but honestly the cause is so amazing that if we put our minds to it I know we can do it. Without a cure, 1 in 8 American women will be diagnosed with breast cancer. This is our opportunity to do something about it. Together, we can. I know since we are geographically scattered getting together to do training won't be easy - however we will be able to stay in touch through email and maybe even phone. Then, for the walk it will be great to take the journey with anyone of you. I have already registered and gone to the meeting so if you have any questions please feel free to email me. Also, if you do decide to join me let me know so we can set up our team. To register or to find out more information go to http://www.the3day.org/ or call 800.996.3DAY. If the walk seems to be too much I hope that you can support the cause in other ways. I look forward to seeing everyone who can make it in April and I am truly happy that we are all coming together again, I just wish the catalyst had been a happier one. Peace, Carla Geary DiProspero

I am just now getting to check out the blog and what a great surprise it was to see the 3Day logo pop up! I am actually walking it Oct 24-26 in Atlanta, GA. This will be my first walk, but I am really looking forward to it! I am making a patchwork skort to wear...each patch will have a name of someone I want to honor or remember....of course Lisman will have a patch! Her smile was contagious!

Good luck with your fundraising efforts!
