When I found out that I had breast cancer, it rocked my world. I knew that my life would never be the same. I would be a fighter and then a survivor for the rest of my years. I struggled to try to understand why this was happening to me and my family. I prayed a lot. A lot of people prayed for me. My heart became filled with this bigger purpose. This God-given purpose that I was given this struggle to not only change me and my life, but to also use my journey through the struggle to help others. After hearing about how the Stephanie Vest Foundation helped a dear friend of mine while she went through her own breast cancer fight, I just knew that I wanted to put my efforts into raising money for this amazing organization that physically, emotionally, and financially helps local women and their families to make it through their fight against this cancer. When you sign up and pay your $10 to participate either virtually or in-person (socially distanced of course), you are giving $8 to the Stephanie Vest Foundation. $2 from each sign up goes to the Runsignup.com to help organize our efforts. If you wish to make a bigger donation, there will be a link on the website. That money will all go to the Stephanie Vest Foundation. We will also have more opportunities for fundraising at the race. We will have raffle baskets (raffle tickets will be 2 for $5) and we will have some AMAZING baked treats available for a $1 donation. I am so, so excited to be part of helping this wonderful foundation that will continue to bless families that are forced to fight this fight. We have important work to do here, so let's get started!!!!!
