A Breath Of Hope.

This past Saturday was the Twin Cities Lung Cancer 5K and we had thirty (30!!) friends and family either walking or running as part of our team, Remembering Nan’s Battle. It was an absolute blast, and even though the weather was less than desirable, we all made it through with smiles on our faces.

A failed attempt at a group photo. (We’re missing four runners and four walkers.)
M and H getting ready to go. T is missing in action at this point because he had discovered the goody bags and the other miscellaneous free items that were donated by different clinics, companies and pharmaceutical companies.
I didn’t really know what to expect this summer when I learned about this organization and this event. I knew that it was important to me to participate and I am so thankful that we had several friends and family members join us as well.
Friends and family members who are busy and have so many things in their own lives going on but yet were willing to give up one morning to do this.
Together, with over thirty registered participants (there were a couple that were sick), our team raised more than my original goal of $1000.
I’m not sure how much money was raised total for the organization but I do know that over 800 people participated and that was double the amount that participated last year. WOW!
It felt good doing something together for a cause that means a lot to me and my family.
THANK YOU for joining us. THANK YOU for donating money. THANK YOU for all your thoughts and prayers and support.
We’ll be doing it again next year and my hope would be to have even more friends and family walking and running with us and to raise even more money for the research and treatment of lung cancer.
