BCA Walk

Despite the rain, today’s Breast Cancer Action (BCA) walk was a huge success. 
My mom walked ahead with Bev, and I think Alice and I were the last two to finish the 5k. Alice and I may have our limitations, but we were determined go all the way. And we did it! Together! A group of friends cheered us across the finish line.
It meant a lot that my mom was here to participate today. Below is a picture of her dancing during the warm-up (which won't surprise anyone who knows her!).
I don’t have the final count, but I know I had over $2,500 in pledges. Thank you to everyone who sponsored me. The money is going to a very worthy cause: Breast Cancer Action.

As mentioned before, I did the walk today in memory of friends Mary O'Rourke and Meridy Foster.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for this herculean effort (both you and Alice) and for everything you do. You show us all every day that we just do this stuff one day or one event at a time, and I hope that there was a lovely warm bath somewhere in your afternoon plans. Many hugs!
