Thursday Thirteen #19 - Join the Gal to Gal Virtual Walk


Here are some great reasons to join Gal to Gal Virtual Walk to improve the lives of those diagnosed with Stage IV breast cancer.
  1. It takes only 3 minutes to log onto www.galtogalwalk.org and create your virtual walker to join this journey.
  2. Only a $3 minimum donation to join the walk.
  3. There is no real walking required!
  4. There are no sponsors required!
  5. Their goal is to register 1 million walkers over the month of October to raise funds for Stage IV breast cancer patients through the Gal to Gal Foundation.
  6. Celebrities such as Martha Stewart and Lynn Redgrave are already walking.
  7. On Monday, October 1st (the first day of breast cancer awareness month) we began our journey in Boston in honor of Robin Bloksberg who passed away at 45 after losing her brave battle to Stage IV - leaving behind a wonderful husband and a six year old daughter.
  8. Today we are walking in Baltimore MD and will visit 31 cities in total along the way.
  9. We cross the "finish line" on the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco in memory of Janis Armstrong - who even during the final months of her life - helped craft the Gal to Gal Foundation's mission statement.
  10. For this journey there are no "blue" or "red" states but only "PINK" ones.
  11. The fact is, as Carrie Dederich has said - "breast cancer is an equal opportunity destroyer."
  12. Also check out Design-her Gals stationery and gift products.
  13. Join us and spread the word!
