Making Strides Against Breast Cancer THIS WEEKEND! (plus meet my Mommy!)

The time has arrived, y’all!  The Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk in Atlanta is this Saturday.  My pink laces are prepped and ready, and I am proud to be walking for my Granna who had breast cancer.  Remember, the money raised by these walks helps the American Cancer Society provide support services to women who’ve been diagnosed with breast cancer all over the country.

One in every two women newly diagnosed with breast cancer reaches out to the American Cancer Society for help and support. We are in every community providing free information and services when and where people need it. If you need someone to talk with at 3 a.m. (or any other time of the day or night), we’re here. If your friend is losing her hair because of chemo, your mother needs a ride to treatment, or if a loved one needs a place to stay while in treatment away from home, we are the ones who can help.

Walks are happening all over the country so there is certain to be one nearby you!  Head on over to head on over the Making Strides website, and check the schedule for a walk in your city.  If you’re in Atlanta, it’s not too late!! And if you can’t walk, don’t fret — you can still donate! I set a modest goal for myself to raise $250. If you’d like to donate, you can visit my donation page here!

I’m super excited because my mom came into town just in time to join me. Yay! She is a big time jogger, so unfortunately, I’ll be holding her back because running for me just ain’t gonna happen. Lol! Sorry Mom.  We took these silly pictures of ourselves “prepping” for the walk. Lol!

Making Strides Against Breast Cancer is the American Cancer Society’s nationwide series of walking events to raise funds and awareness to end breast cancer.

If you’ll be walking in Atlanta this Saturday, leave a comment!! See ya there!

  7. You and your mom are hilarious! It's wonderful to see all that excitement and positivity poured into these sort of walks – it's going to be passed on to many patients who really need support. Some of the bloggers at our page recently joined the CIBC run for the cure – and they seemed just as elated as you. Keep passing it forward! :)

    (beautiful shoes, by the way)

    The cutest post I've ever seen. You and your mother are beautifully adorable and cute!

    Enjoy the walk/jog. Haha, I know if I was a big-time jogger and my daughter was not, I'd most likely link arms with her and force her to move faster than a walk. (But I'm not a mother. Not anytime soon at least!)
