  1. I won’t be at this one, but I’m leading my company team at the Komen Race for the Cure on Sunday. The whole family is running. And I may have put your name in Susan’s Garden to be displayed at the Survivors Booth on Sunday, don’t be mad!

    I was finally able to register last night & pay, but I could not put myself on your team – the website was not working for that part. Had to use Margaret for the card to go through. Love, Mom

    Thanks, Karissa, for this post and for letting us know about the entry fees. I know you have posted about it before, but I am waaaay behind in e-mail and would’ve had to dig for it. I am fairly confident that we will attend, but I would rather just register the day of the event. I think I would try the 5K walk (with the shortcut), but I’d like to see if Amber would do it with me since we did runs together at her school this summer. We’ll have to see what her comfort level would be on the day. I’m sure Aiden and April could handle the sprint–it sure would be cute to see them do it with Ryan and Ethan! 🙂 =) 😛
