Today is an exciting day! After the Race for the Cure this weekend Amber from Mile High Mamas asked if I would write a guest blog post for Breast Cancer awareness month. I wrote it up and today my post is on the front page of Mile High Mamas. Read the full story here. Please give it a read, and maybe a comment, if you so choose. I feel very thankful that I was given this platform to spread Amy's story, and thus increase her "sphere of love and support".
Race for the Cure was a huge success, with Team Amy's Chemo Sabes raising more than $8,000 and walking with 87 Amy supporters. Amy herself was out in full Amy glamor, pushing Ty, with a huge smile on her face.
I also was lucky to win the overall woman in the Race for the Cure 5K...in all my baldness. The highlight was that 9news interviewed me and I got to tell Amy's story to the greater Denver area. We are working on trying to get 9news to upload the footage, so Amy can actually see it. Cross your fingers on that one.
And, next on tap. What does epic skiing & breast cancer research have to do with each other? It's called the Pink Chase Fundraiser and my two favorite stud triathlete/skier girlfriends and I are teaming up together for a day of epic proportions. On Dec 12th, teams of 3 women will compete against each other by trying to ski the most vertical feet, raise the most money, and have the best costumes, all for The Breast Cancer Research Foundation. You can count on Pro triathlete and ski shop owner Amy D, skiing before she could walk and top 20 in the world triathlete PIC, and me to bring our A game! We need a name...help!
