Never did I think that almost 6 years later I would be preparing for my 4th walk! Over the years I have officially walked 117.9 miles with the Avon Organization and probably 1000s of miles in personal training walks.
I started walking thinking I would get in shape while spending time with a good friend. I have thankfully never been personally touched by this awful disease but through my training and years walking I came to realize that I was walking for those who can't. Getting in shape is no longer the motivator, it is a way to get the message out. I walk and spread the word about why I am walking because there are men and women out there who cannot.
I have met hundreds of people who have been affected by this disease directly or to someone they care about. Thanks to my fellow teammates we have managed to raise over $20k over the 3 previous walks! That may seem like a lot but overall it is just pennies compared to the millions raised every year by men and woman in the Boston area!
Since I am always posting about getting in shape and new challenges I will also be posting in the future about how this training is going as well. If you would like to support me in the walk I would be honored and you can donate any amount here
Beyond fundraising though, I hope you will support me in the months to come by sharing your stories, joining me on a training walk or coming out for a fundraiser! It is your stories that keep me motivated through mile 20 on a hot day!
