B4B in the News

If you live in the Braselton or Hoschton area, be sure and check out the Features Section of The Paper.  Katie Dunn has proven to be a friend of the B4B team since the 2009 3-Day walk.  She wrote a story about my mom and I as a mother-daughter team walking together to celebrate my mom's 10 year anniversary of being CANCER FREE.  After the walk was over last year, she did a tearful follow up with us sitting in the dining room at Wendy's in Braselton.

For the new 2010 season, she has written a Feature story on the B4B team joining efforts with a local Yoga Studio in Hoschton to raise money and awareness of breast cancer.  Heather Swint of Soul Shine Yoga & Wellness offered to host a Yogathon Fundraiser at her yoga studio.  All proceeds will go to B4B.  Heather has been directly affected by cancer, both in her mother and her sister.  This cause means alot to all of us.

Check out the Features Section of The Paper in the Braselton/Hoschton/Chateau Elan area and attend the Yogathon on Friday, August 27th from 7-9 if you can!  We are requesting a donation of $20 pp but we will not turn anyone away.  There will be prize drawings as well!!

Go to for details, directions or more information about the Yogathon.

My Mom Bought this for me....

My mom and I went walking about two weeks ago and she had a gift for me, she was dying to show it to me too.  I had to STOP walking to look at it, it could not wait until after we were finished.  Since we walked last year together and are walking again this year, she found this online for me.

Atlanta 3-Day is approaching FAST!!

So we are 10 1/2 weeks from the Atlanta 3-day.  Boy has this summer gone by fast!  We've had some injuries on team walkers to work through, but we are on the mend!  We are in official "training" mode now and trying to sell more Fight Like a Girl tshirts and cookbooks - $15 each and all the proceeds go to Susan G Komen.  This is our team fundraiser.

We are also designing our walk tshirts.  We will wear these on all 3 days of the walk with our sponsors proudly displayed on the back!  We are also designing our sweatshirt for those chilly mornings in October.  Any suggestions for a design?  Welcoming those suggestions and ideas.
