Wife is doing the Komen 3-Day Walk

I'm very proud of her making this commitment to walk 60 miles in three days.
Here family has a history of breast cancer and we now have two daughters so, it really hits home.
Not being the athletic type I admit I had my doubts but, she is up to walking ten miles a day now. I think this is excellent progress since she gave birth to out second child just five months ago. The walk is scheduled in early November.
And yes, she needs sponsors to achieve the needed $2300 to be able to participate. For those interested you can donate directly online in her name.
Anything would be greatly appreciated. She has no idea of this request.
I'm also trying to sell a few MB parts and will donate all the proceeds.

Her pregress can be seen here:

Why don't you walk as well, or do a 3 keg drink for charity.

I can do that. on a serious note, my daughter had some cancerous polyps that was operated on and she is doing fine. I will do what can for cancer research.

Give your wife a great big hug from me!
I am very proud of her efforts! I lost somebody special to me from breast cancer and I will log into her page and donate.

Tell her she rocks from Joe!

When is the walk, Dan? I'll throw something her way when I can. Lost my MIL to breast cancer 6 years ago. The genetic aspect scares the hell out of me (for my wife and daughter).

Best of luck to her!

It's November 5-7th. I'm trying to keep up with here but, having a hard time. CT scan yesterday revealed a spot on my left lung. Explains why I'm stuggling.

Thanks for the support guys! She is not one to ever ask for something like this.
