last year, and every other year, it was a spectacular success, with 350 walkers and 200 volunteers making thousands and thousands of dollars that go directly -- 100% directly -- to breast cancer research. To breast cancer researchers who apply to the Foundation for grants.
Not sure how to express how today went at the Terri Brodeur Breast Cancer Walk...emotional, exhausting, exhilarating, incredible. Can't believe it's over. The day was absolutely perfect, the walkers were awesome, the volunteers were incredible. Everyone must be exhausted, but one day closer to finding a cure and giving 100% of all monies raised today to breast cancer research.
It's humbling to work with such amazing people who donate so much time and effort and energy every year. It's a great event and a great Foundation and a great day. And in a few months, several more researchers are going to get huge checks from the Foundation, and are going to take further steps to kick breast cancer's ass.
I just wish I had a photo of those gigantic soup pots.
