Making Strides Against Breast Cancer 2009
On October 17, 2009, the ladies of High Hopes in High Heels had the opportunity to volunteer for Making Strides Against Breast Cancer hosted by the American Cancer Society! It was held at the St. Pete Times Forum in Channelside, where we were able to work the registration table. Even though is was very early and freezing outside, we were happy to be a part of such a wonderful event. We were honored to register all the teams and individual racers as they began their walk to raise awareness and find a cure for breast cancer. There were information booths set up at the event for walkers and attendees as well as delicious apples and caramel dip provided by McDonald’s.
We stayed till walkers started to finish the walk and it was amazing to see the mix of emotions that were evident that morning. Several walking for various reasons: in memory of someone, for their own personal battle, for a loved one, to raise awareness, in support of someone, and so on. All participants were full of pride and joy as they crossed the finish line!
We were all honored to be a part of such of a magnificent event and are looking forward to doing the same in 2010! This year, we hope to have both walkers and members to help with registration on October 23, 2010. We hope to see you there in your PINK!
Thank you to our volunteers: Alysia Peddy, Jessica Grimsley, Christie & Bill Amurgis, Shelby Coriaty, Amy Stanley, Rachel Coleman, and Deb Paules
