Those of you who worked with me at Sprint and Embarq remember Bev Noecker. She battled breast cancer for 25 years and her spirit was and still is an inspiration to me. I wanted her to see how many people were there supporting the Komen Foundation and Breast Cancer Research. She was too weak to walk the course because she had bone and brain mets at the time. But we were able to get her in with the group of survivors at the end of the race and have her surrounded by her sister survivors.
She always wore a smile!
Please join me if you can on Sunday, August 8th. The race starts at 7:30 a.m. and it's over in about an hour. I guarantee that if you've never participated before, you will be in awe of the number of people who participate and the camaraderie that you will experience. Walk in memory of Bev and others who have been taken too early by this dreadful disease. Walk in celebration of me, and Lori, and Donna, and Angie, and all the other women you know who are fighting the good fight.
