4 days...

I'm sorry, does this offend you?

Cancer offends us.
We leave in 4 days to walk 60 miles.
To help create a world where there is no more of THIS.
Thank you for sharing our journey with us.
Love ~ Melissa, Heather & Joyce.

Movie On The Lawn Numero Dos.

A beautiful evening for our most recent fundraiser - a movie on the lawn.  E.T. to be exact.

All of our guests got a turn giving E.T. a "ride"!

Here's what it looks like during the movie:

I think that everyone had a great time.  The weather cooled down significantly as the night went on, but I don't think any of us Phoenicians were complaining after such a long HOT summer!
Thank you again to everyone who came out to support us ~
We love you all!!!

Stats on boobs.

Breast Cancer "fun" fact?!?  #1
About 1 in 8 women in the United States (12%) will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime.

This disgusts us.  That's why we walk.

Upcoming Events!

Hello there friends-who-are-also-supporters!  We have been busy these summer months... walking, fundraising, and getting super excited for November!
We wanted to let you know about a few events we've got coming up:

1.  August 15th - CostumeSupercenter.com will be doing an on-line fundraiser for us.  They will give us 15% of every order placed under our name!  Details to come - so don't go buyin' your costumes just yet!  It's still August, right?!?

2.  September 1st - Wildflower Neighborhood Nights.  Did you come to the Rubio's event?  Same story, second verse!

3.  October 1st - Movie on the Lawn #2!  Did you come to the last one?  I think everyone who came had a GREAT time.  It will be sort of a fall-kickoff event kind of like the last one was a summer-kickoff event...

4.  November 5th - Rummage Sale!  We had a rummage sale last spring and it was a VERY helpful event for our little fund!  So save all of your post-summer-clean-out-crap and bring it to us! 

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU again for all of your love and support as we prepare for our journey to San Diego!
Melissa, Heather & Joyce.
