The 3 Day plunge, that is. In November the Susan G Komen for the Cure 3 Day Walk will be in San Diego and I am going to be there! A girlfriend and I decided a few weeks ago that we would do this walk.

Now we are up to a team of 4 and a half (one girl is still thinkink about it, but I think she'll do it) with a goal to make a team of 15. I have never done anything like this before. 60 miles over 3 days! But I really can't think of a better cause to tear up my feet for, so I am doing it!

Each walker needs to raise $2200, but I really feel like that will be the easy part. The 3 day website has such helpful and fun ideas for raising money, that I know we can do it and have fun at the same time.

Missy and I had also discussed having a charity aspect to Handmade Parade, and I am so excited to say that my 3 Day team is it! We'll be taking donations during HP to benefit our walkers and to even sign up some new ones. (I am officially a charity case, lol!!)

Please check out www.the3day.com for more info on the walks, they are taking place all over the country starting in late August. If you have a friend you can walk with, please get together find or start a team and get out there! Oh and watch the Inspirational video with tissue, I cried buckets, but I am a bit of an emo freak.

And all you local yokels who see me regularly, beware, I am going to ask you to play along with me!

*I am adding this for fun - leave a comment on this post and I will donate a dollar for each comment to out team effort. Also, I'll draw a name to will a pink Brooch, so comment away!

I want to do this really bad. I need to get on their website and see where the closest one will be around here. I think it is for a really good cause. I wish you guys the best of luck (and you know, walking 60 miles can't hurt a girls figure either : )

Hi Claire
Good for you. We have a similar event here in Oz except it is a 24 hour relay which, now reading your entry I think I will now do.
Thanks for sharing

I'm so happy that the Handmade Parade will help such a worthy cause. Too many women are affected by this! There have been a lot of great advances, but not a cure. What's your team name?

This is a wonderful reason to tear up your feet! And I received the cute potholders and all the other yummies you put in the package, thanks so much! I hope you are enjoying your potholder. Take care, I'll stop in again!
