|Right after the race with my Finisher metal.|
In addition to running the half marathon, I raised funds for the world’s largest breast cancer organization, Susan G. Komen for the Cure®. Through the generosity of friends and family I have raised $1,430.00 to date. A special thank you to all who donated! Please know that your donations are going to such a great cause. Throughout the race I saw so many men and women running in honor of or in memory of their loved ones who have suffered with breast cancer. The most inspirational ones where the women who had survivor bibs on, how awesome is that to overcome and beat breast cancer. It was an honor to be apart of Susan G. Komen Marathon for the Cure! If you would still like to make a donation my personal page will be up for one month post race date (April 27, 2011).
I also wanted to say thank you to my friend Caroline for encouraging me to sign up and also for training with me. I could not have done the long runs with out you! Also a big thank you to my husband Alan and my sister-in-law Susan for getting up early and cheering us on throughout the race! You guys are awesome! Here are few photos taken by Alan of the day's activities.
