Walking For a Cure

This October, all over the country people are walking to find a cure to Breast Cancer. With organizations like Susan G. Komen for the Cure, people are really getting active in this fight against cancer. This weekend, I went to Woodberry Commons for a Breast Cancer walk and had an amazing time. All the men, women, children, and even pets were all there to show support. The energy of the people there was heartwarming and you couldn’t help but feel empowered to help make a change in the lives of those affected by Breast Cancer. The walk was about 3 miles and the whole event only took about two hours. Taking this short amount of time out of my day was totally worth it and I can’t wait to go back next year.
