FUNDRAISING
I turned my monthly change jar into the bank on Saturday morning and yielded an additional $23 towards my $2300 goal.  It may not seem like much, but if you look at it percentage-wise, that's 1% of the minimum fundraising amount just from saving my change in the month of April!

I sent my monthly e-mails yesterday to those who hadn't donated yet.  It yielded an additional $25 (thank you Sedric A.); hopefully it will yield another donation or two before the month is out.  I learned last year that the closer I got to the walk, the more donations I got from my email solicitations.  I need $917 to reach the minimum personal goal.  Team Bras of Glory is at 45% of it's $10,000 goal... we're getting there.

Team Bras of Glory is also doing a T-Shirt fundraiser... see my post below.

Also walking in support of other family members, friends and colleagues who have gone through or still coping with breast cancer. Doing her part in the battle of pink!

LESSONS LEARNED FROM 2009
- When buying shoes, DO buy them a half-size bigger as recommended.  Last year I ended up having to cut the toes out of my tennis shoes.
- Buy the blister stick if you have any kind of rub problems with your feet... walking with blisters is no fun.
- If you are going to do the event with a camel-pak, or any kind of pack: train with it!!!!  My shoulders were SO sore from not being used to the weight of it last year.
- TRAIN, TRAIN, TRAIN
