3 Days... more than a shirt!

At the end of every event you participate in, you get a victory shirt. Some are white, some are grey and the special ones are pink! All have special meanings to the wear-ee! My first victory shirt was a long sleeved, dark blue t-shirt... so practical for Florida! And despite the 90+ degree temperatures at closing, I wore it with pride!

But the more events I have done, the more I realize that it's more than a shirt. It's a sense of community... a common bond that only a handful of people in the world have stepped up to make the commitment to find a cure for Breast Cancer. It's about the people you meet along the way... walkers, crew members, volunteers, spectators... even the little kids at the end of their driveways with handmade signs showing their support. (sorry... teary moment!) It's about the people you walk for... mothers, daughters, sisters, aunts, grandmothers, friends, husbands, brothers. It's about the people you walk with... friends, family and total strangers... also know as "soon to be friends."

Enjoy the experience! The 3-Day is that... only 3 days... but the 3-Day lives on forever... in your heart! :)
