Walking with the Palmers

Posted: July 29, 2007 in family, giving

My wife and I — well really, just my wife — are putting together a team for Houston’s Race for the Cure. The event is October 6, 2007 and benefits the Susan G. Komen Foundation. The Komen Foundation funds breast cancer research and education. You can click here, if you would like to join us or support us as walkers/stroller pushers.

Here’s what Rochelle writes about walking the walk:

“I walk because one in eight women will be stricken with breast cancer in her lifetime… I walk because I am a woman, and therefore, I am at risk…I walk in memory of my grandmother who died because of this disease…I walk in honor of my mother, who is beating it…I walk for justice for underprivileged and minority women who lack resources for early detection…I walk in confidence because I believe in prevention…I walk in hope for my two daughters, that in their lifetime, they will see a cure…I walk today because there is no guarantee I will walk tomorrow…I walk with purpose because I will not take matters of health sitting down. Walk with me…as a community, we will make a difference!”

Our team name is “Walk This Way”. (Isaiah:30.21)
