Walking Miles for Elizabeth's Smiles

My favorite day of the year is right around the corner!  On Sunday, September 22nd, for the twenty fourth year in a row, I will walk the full 26.2 miles of the Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk.  I look forward to it every year and this year is no exception!  Although I will probably be sore and tired after the walk, it is a small price to pay for raising money for Dana-Farber Cancer Institute!

I get chills thinking about the start in Hopkinton.  The entire day is such a powerful experience.  Many people stand along the side of the road to cheer us on.  On the backs of many of the walkers are team names - some include pictures of people, some are sayings, but all are in honor or in memory of someone who has fought or is fighting cancer.   It reminds me why I do this - it reminds me that I am making a difference in the fight against cancer!  

As in past years, I walk in honor of my daughter Elizabeth who was diagnosed with Leukemia a month shy of her third birthday.  She is now 27 and  continues to remain cancer free so it is with celebration that I walk!  It is for Elizabeth and all the other kids and adults that I walk; those who have made it and those who have not, hoping that someday everyone will survive cancer.
