I’ve done the breast cancer awareness walk a couple of times. I also ran a huge fundraiser for the Pan-Mass challenge two years ago. We raised over 60K for the Dana Farber Cancer Center.

I participated in the Susan Komen “3-Day” event a number of years ago. 60 miles in 3 days. Because my company generously matched donations raised by my team, we four ladies raised around $12,000. The event was very inspirational, but it rather took away my desire to walk ever again ;-) I’m very glad I did it; but I’ll not do something so physically demanding again.

Ah thanks for mentioning Movember – I had never been aware of it before, so know I’m informed. Cheers! :D
