Find Your Passion

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.

  1. Thank you my sweet daughter! Those words were so beautiful and brought tears to my eyes, a smile to my face, and pride in my heart for such a loving daughter. I often desire to be more passionate for other causes I truly believe in and now I know I can be. It takes hard word, determination, and belief. Thank you for your encouragement and support! Thanks to Gran (my Mom) for her inspiration!
