    Red face Personal Goal for '13!!

    Hello ladies! I dont know if some of you know, but last year I set a goal to lose 50 pounds. I got close to my goal but only lost 40 pounds, although it's still a pretty good amount.
    This year, I decided to set my goals a little bit higher. Not a weight loss goal, but more of a personal goal.
    Every year I do the local Susan G Komen breast cancer walk, but for the last few years, I have wanted to do the BIG one. So this year, I decided I was going to go for it! I signed myself up to do the 3 day, 60 mile breast cancer walk that will take place in June for my location!! I am super excited, but at the same time, I am nervous about it, because I have to raise $2,300 in order to even be able to walk the event!
    If you are willing and able, I would greatly appreciate donations of any amount, or even letting others know about my goal this year to help me with this.
    In 2005, my grandmother went in for a routine mammogram. 2 months later, she was doing a self exam and noticed a lump. After making an appointment to see her doctor and having a biopsy done, it was determined that she did indeed have breast cancer. In 2 months, she went from being cancer free to being diagnosed with Stage 3 breast cancer. It was the most terrifying thing that our family has ever had to go through, and I don’t wish this heartache, unknowing and stress on anyone. Luckily she fought it and beat her cancer and now, in 2013, 8 years later, she is still cancer free. This cause is very important to me, and with my determination and your support, I know that I can do this!


    I am also going to have an incentive for those that may want to donate.
    If you are able to donate http://www.the3day.org/goto/ryancaselton I will match your donation with a coupon to my GingerScraps store! http://store.gingerscraps.net/Roseytoes/
    Anything is greatly appreciated!! ♥

    I'm impressed. I don't think I could take it on. I did the relay for life a couple of times, but walk for three days on my own? Uh uh. That takes a lot of dedication and courage. I wish you all the luck in raising the money and getting in shape, not to mention actually walking for three days!
