60 miles, 3 days... I did that!

60 miles, 3 days... I did that!


October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  We are so proud of Denise Deitchman, JF&CS Manager of Volunteer Development who participated in the Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure the weekend of October 21-23.  These are her reflections on why she walked 60 miles for a cure.

I decided to walk the Susan G Komen 3-Day for a Cure in 2006 because it was always something on my bucket list. I thought it would be a great physical challenge, as well as inspirational, and I signed up with a few friends to do the walk. At the time, breast cancer didn’t really affect me personally, but I still wanted to help the cause.
