Get to walking!

Have you decided how you will show your support for the fight against breast cancer? If not, may I suggest that you join the Gal to Gal Foundation Walking For Wishes. It's just $5 to assist in raising $250,000 for the fight. So far, $53,993 has been raised, but I think we could do much better.

Before I go any further, let me assure you that this is not a paid post. I have decided that supporting Breast Cancer Awareness is a cause I should have gotten behind a long time ago so I have tried to do
several small things to make a difference, and this is just one of those things.

What prompted this post was when I recently clicked through to the Gal to Gal virtual walk site and saw that just over $50,000 had been raised. That's okay, but then I saw that Dorit Shapiro, the Gal to Gal president, lost her battle to Stage IV breast cancer just this week before she was able to see the goal realized. For some reason that pulled at my heart.

Wouldn't it be awesome if the goal could be reached in her honor? We have to pull together to make a difference. Come on... get to (virtual) walking - it's just $5.

(If you aren't sure what virtual walking is: You create a avatar that virtually walks for you. We are walking across America and are in Chicago, Illinois, right now. While walking you can click on the city trivia book and learn about where you are. ... I just walked pass the Lincoln Zoo.)
