My friends Dana and Carrie completed the Seattle Breast Cancer 3 Day this weekend. It’s a sixty mile walk to raise funds for breast cancer research. Each walker had to raise at least $2200 in order to participate. In all, over 3200 walkers made their goals and then some, and spent three days traipsing around Seattle and the Eastside.
I did this walk last year with Dana – this marked her third overall – and let me tell you, there are few more emotional experiences and little else that will make your feet ache as much as they do when you finally get home from this event. I admire each and every person who has done this, even more if you’re done it multiple times. It’s a total bitch, but an amazing experience at the same time. It involves months of training walks, blisters, rickety knees and begging everyone you have ever met for money. It involves working hard to help save lives.
Congratulations, Dana and Carrie, on a job well done.
