We've Got Spirit Yes We Do! We've Got Spirit How 'Bout YOU!

Training is coming to an end and the walk is near!! In T-12 days we will be on our 3-Day journey surrounded by many with a common mission We are SO excited and we are so thankful for your prayers and support! We would ask that you continue to pray for us over the coming days as we prepare mentally and physically for what awaits us!

Next Friday (November 6th) we will begin at 5:30am with check in and opening ceremonies and we will begin walking around 7am. We will walk 20.2 miles on day one and then we'll do it all over again on days 2 and 3. This weekend I was in Dallas and had the privilege of walking with Coleen and Kristen for our 18 mile training walk. It was so great and Kristen got some great photos! Hopefully she'll share that with y'all! Mom had to walk alone, but she had a great walk Saturday too. I was home on Sunday and mom and I were able to walk that one together. We were SO lucky to have 2 gorgeous days this weekend. We are PRAYING each day for the same fortune next weekend! I would honestly ask you to pray for that as well.

Again, THANK YOU for your constant support of us! We wouldn't be able to do this without you! I am going to post some information I found on the 3-Day website below. It lists the cheering stations, so if any of you are in the area and would like to stop by we would be so glad to see you! You can also click here to follow us on Twitter!


Before the Event

Getting ready for the Breast Cancer 3-Day is a big job. Here are some ways to support your participant before the big day arrives.

Write a letter expressing your love and support to your walker. Send it to our P.O. Box, and we'll collect the letters and deliver to them on the event at the Breast Cancer 3-Day camp. Send letters to:

Breast Cancer 3-Day Post Office
P.O. Box 126496
Benbrook, TX 76126

Envelopes only, please. No boxes or large packages. Mail must be postmarked no later than October 27th in order to ensure delivery. Any mail that is not retrieved by the participant by November 20th will be destroyed.

Organize a group to host your very own private cheering station. (Contact for more information.)
Help raise money.
Go on a training walk.

Cheering Stations

Public cheering stations are a great way to show your support along the route to encourage walkers and let them know that you are with them every step of the way. Seeing familiar faces cheering them on can provide that extra burst of energy that gets them to take that next step or go the next mile. Create banners, hold up signs, bring some music and make some noise - anything to make them smile, get energized and keep walking.
