My mother raised over $2,000 so that she could walk in a 60 mile 3-day walk in order to promote a cure for breast cancer. Can you imagine training for half a year to walk for 60 miles over the course of 3 days all while using port-a-potties, taking open showers in an 18 wheeler truck and sleeping in tents at night?
My mom’s so passionate about finding a cure for breast cancer that she has purchased every single pin ever made available and actually wears a different one each day of the year. (Okay, I don’t know if she actually wears a different one every day, but I promise she has enough to do so.)
Why is she so passionate about finding a cure for breast cancer? Because her mom is going on 25 years of being a 2 time survior of breast cancer. Breast cancer almost killed her mom – twice – and she wants to do something about it. She actively showed her passion by raising money for the cause and walking in a 3 day event.
What are you willing to walk that far for? If you can’t think of something, find something. Be passionate about a cause and carry the torch that will educate and invigorate others to join you.
