Saturday morning was crisp, barely above 40 degrees when I stepped out my front door. My husband and I were on our way to walk in a race against breast cancer (no mockery about me not actually “racing” against breast cancer now!) To make things more challenging, we walked from our house, all the way…an additional 3 miles!
So, we were off on our walking adventure, along with 2 of our coworkers and their wives. The day warmed up slightly and the walk took us just under an hour. Although the walk was enjoyable, what really made the difference was the fundraising I was able to help with.
A total of more than $400,000 was raised for our local breast cancer survivors and fighters, from wigs to gas cards to transportation to therapy etc. these funds will all stay within our community to help the women fighting in our own backyard.
My legs hurt for the whole day, but it was well worth it!
Afterwards, my husband and I stopped by Harlan’s Bike and Tour, a bicycle dealer in Sioux Falls. They took our measurements and told us what kind of bicycles we would be able to ride. So, next up, seeing if we can actually still ride bicycles! The adventure continues!
