Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure

This morning was the annual Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure in Austin, TX. The turnout was truly amazing. It's great to see so many people involved. Entire companies are going. I saw Best Buy, Dell, Round Rock ISD, IBM, Texas Roller Girls (on skates!), Cedar Park Cheerleaders, HEB and an astounding number of teams. It's upsetting to see that many teams only because you know there is a specific person behind each one.

Today, I met up with the team "Believe, Believe". That's the team for my mom's best friend, Kimberly Ellis (and my friend too). She was diagnosed with breast cancer about the same time that Tina was first diagnosed. They both went through treatment and were in remission. Unfortunately both Kimberly and Tina's cancer came back around the same time too. It's great to see Kimberly so strong and determined. She's looking very healthy which we all love to see.

I handed out about 150 flyers for the Plucker's fundraiser and many people were excited to see the Plucker's logo. Hopefully since they enjoy the food and are involved in the race, they'll go and even bring others.


  1. Wish we could have been there for the walk, we were there in spirit, glad to hear Kimberly is doing so well. That is great that you were able to hand out so many flyers.

  2. How Wonderful! Glad to hear your friend is looking good. Hope to see some pictures from the race!- Nicole!
