Several of you have expressed an interest in participating in the Komen Race for the Cure on my behalf. The 5k Run/Walk is Saturday, October 4th at 8:00 a. m. in Little Rock. I would be honored if you would like to participate on TeamTina.
Here are the instructions to register:
- Go to www.komenarkansas.org
- Hover your mouse over Komen Race for the Cure (located on the pink tab bar)
- Click on Registration from the drop down menu
- Click on Join an Existing Team
- Scroll down (from the drop down menu) and click on TeamTina (no space)
- Hit return on your keyboard and our team will appear, then click Join
- Register for 5k Run/Walk ($26)
Of course I am always looking for a reason to celebrate, and coincidentally, my first cycle of chemo will be completed the Monday before (September 29th).
So, let’s have a party!
Everyone who participates on TeamTina is invited to a celebratory breakfast after the race. The breakfast will be held at North Little Rock First Assembly of God located at 4501 Burrow Drive (right behind McCain Mall).
If you’ve ever participated in Race for the Cure, you know it is VERY hard to find somewhere to eat after the race without a long wait. So come celebrate with us and have a great breakfast without a long wait!
I will post about this again with some additional details in a few days, but I know some of you are ready to register and needed the team information ASAP.
The proceeds from the race are used to fund breast cancer research. I am directly benefitting from this through the clinical studies I am participating in at MD Anderson. Three (out of seven) of my chemo drugs are funded by research grant money, some of which is raised during Race for the Cure 5k Run/Walks around the country.
Your participation helps everyone who has been, or will be, affected by this disease.
Again, thank you all for showing your love and support in so many ways to my family and me in these last few weeks. We have been so honored and appreciative for all of the kindness and prayers on our behalf. You guys are amazing. I thank God for you everyday.
