Closing Ceremonies where the walkers and crew formed the outer rings and the participants who were breast cancer survivors (in the pink shirts) marched in last.
I don’t have the words to describe this weekend. It was an amazing, emotional experience to participate in the Breast Cancer 3 Day and I’m so happy that in spite of my doubts I decided to jump in and try.
I was proud that I could honor my Aunt’s memory and do something active in the fight against breast cancer – that my efforts helped to raise funds for research and awareness.
Keith was supportive from the time I told him I wanted to sign up all the way through the event. He gave up many of his weekends to train with me and when I asked him to participate, he agreed to work the event as a crew member. It was wonderful to come back to camp each day to find him there cheering my efforts. As a member of the camp services team, one of his duties was working the towel station hence his new name – towel boy!
