This year, I registered for the Komen Race for the Cure Quad Cities because I wanted to take action and be More Than Pink™.
I'm running in memory of someone who passed recently, Lindsay Thul. Last year, when Lindsay was diagnosed with Inflammatory Breast Cancer (IBC) in April, her mom formed a team the #SlaySquad for the Race for the Cure and we had planned on doing the team each year thinking that Lindsay would be a part of it.
As it goes with Inflammatory Breast Cancer, the cancer took Lindsay in 10 months and she passed in February. She was only 29. Her mom Diane (one of my best friends) still wanted to do the team this year, so here we are again - #SlaySquad.
Your support helps us get one step closer to a world without breast cancer. 75 percent of the money raised through the Race stays in the community to fund local breast cancer education, screening and treatment programs. The remaining 25 percent supports groundbreaking breast cancer research.
As Lindsay was a huge part of this community, I'm happy that the money we raise stays in this community. Thank you for your support!
