It was my third year participating in the Charlottesville Women’s Four Miler. It was our second year going as a team of amazing women. This year, my sister’s mother-in-law, Judy, joined and made us a team of five.
I always look forward to this weekend, and this year did not disappoint. It was yet another beautiful early fall morning, so we could really enjoy our surroundings as we walked the four miles with 3500 other women. We even had our own cheering squad!
It really is amazing to walk with all these women for a great cause. I am inspired by them all – especially my sister! We participate in this race for her and for other women like her who are fighting breast cancer daily. We join other dedicated women to raise money to support and help “cure” others like my sister. It truly is awe-inspiring to watch women in all stages of life (from young girls to older women to women so clearly fighting the disease). You can’t help but feel proud and blessed when you cross that finish line. I look forward to participating in this race every year with my family, friends, and everyone else who goes out to support the cause! It’s “for the girls!”
