Babes for Boobs is doing it again in 2010!! Team Captain, Chelley Young, is getting us motivated and excited about walking 60 miles in 3 days in Atlanta in October!!!
The 10 of us walked together in 2009 and had the most amazing experience. Chelley will be a 3-peat in 2010 - the rest of us are just "repeats". But we had the best times together over the summer doing funraisers at the Lawrenceville Farmers Market, selling tshirts and totebags in the pouring down rain at the Statham Sunflower Festival, soliciting donations from family and friends, meeting for lunch to strategize about how to raise more donations!!!! We had a wonderful Ladies White Elephant Gift Exchange hosted by none other than the Hostess with the Mostest - Chelley!
In 2009 our team raised more than $31,000 colectively selling "Fight Like a Girl" tshirts and totebags and collecting donations. We also sold corporate sponsorships for our team - companies could make a donation of a minimum amount and their corporate logo would be on the back of our walk tshirts for 3 whole days!!!!
After spending all time and effort fundraising, bonding, collaborating, motivating, complaining, and whining - after the walk was over, we were at a loss. I personally felt like someone had died. I missed my new forever friends and teammates.
