Why We Race

The Race for the Cure is a day where we can put aside everything else in our lives and share our stories, our laughter, and our tears to raise money that saves lives while we celebrate survivors, those living with breast cancer, and honor loved ones lost.

I couldn’t save or help my sister Fawn, so in an effort to save others and keep her legacy alive, it is important to me to move forward and help other people.

My first walk was the first time I felt like I wasn’t alone in coping with breast cancer. I felt like I found a family.

Living with MBC

I walk in honor of my mom. I walk because everyone deserves a lifetime. And I will keep walking, because I can't walk away.
